I just started phase 1 and I haven't been able to find any dessert recipes so I came up with my own. These turned out yummy and satisfied my chocolate craving. *** Make a note that this is two days worth of nut rations. (Don't eat them all on the same day.)
- 30 pecan halves, chopped fine
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar substitute
- cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients.
- Drop by teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8 minutes or until firm to the touch.
I doubled this recipe, used the food processor, & only used 1 tsp. cinnamon. Next time, I think I'll use almonds, double the vanilla or use almond extract & add more Splenda. GREAT idea, just needs a little tweaking.
Great taste. I added my own personal touch...which mean, I had ground the pecans and as suggested, add more sugar substitute. cannot be compare to cookies but they're great subs. For sure, i'll be doing that recipe when ever the cravings are back. Thanks.
Tastes like plain walnuts in a cookie. BLAND. I'm going to try to make them again and triple the amount of cocoa and sweetener. Otherwise, just bland and not very good. However, dipped in sugar free carb free caramel or marshmallow.....
