Recipe by Chef Gorete
Coconut oil and calorie free sweetener make the cookies lighter than the traditional ones..
- 3 large eggs, room temperature
- 3⁄4 cup granulated calorie free artificial sweetener (see note at the bottom)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1⁄2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt the coconut oil and set aside to cool. Heat the pizzelle maker.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar.
- Add the cooled melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, coconut extract and water.
- Sift flour and baking powder then add to the egg mixture. Batter will be sticky. If batter is too thick, add a bit more water.
- Spray a small cookie scoop inside and out with a no-stick cooking spray. Drop a scoop of cookie dough onto the centre of the hot pizzelle machine. I cook mine for between 60 seconds and 70 seconds. Each machine heats differently and it depends on how dark you like your Pizzelles.
- Place Pizzelles on a cooling rack. Once cooled, store in an airtight container to keep crispy.
- NOTE: Use a calorie free sweetener that replaces sugar cup for cup. If you are using regular granulated sugar instead of the sweetener, do not add the 1/2 cup water.
