2 hrPrep and Rest time (if applicable)

10 min  Cook Time

2 hr, 10  Total Time

 

Ingredients

    • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
    • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) organic vegetable shortening (or butter)
    • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 15 ounces (2 cups) Erythritol, Rapadura, or granulated sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 8.4 ounces (2 cups) low carb baking mix or all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup Swerve confectioner’s sugar or regular confectioner’s sugar

Instructions

Add chocolate and shortening to a small saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until contents have melted completely and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

Add eggs, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Use a whisk to incorporate the cooled chocolate mixture, then use a mixing spatula or spoon to gently fold in the flour. Be careful not to over mix. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours before proceeding. (The longer you allow it to chill, the less the cookies will spread.)

When ready to bake, heat oven to 375 F.

Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Shape dough into balls approximately 1.5 Tablespoons (0.8 ounces) in size. Roll each ball in confectioner’s sugar to coat completely, then space 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.

Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes, or until edges are just set. Remove pans from oven and allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.

snack-cake-ck-1185383-x

This easy-to-make snack cake has deep chocolate taste. For more banana flavor and a slight crunch, top the cake with crumbled banana chips before baking. You can sell the cake whole or package individual pieces.
16 servings (serving size: 1 piece)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana

1/4 teaspoon salt
Powdered sugar (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spoon applesauce onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 5 minutes. Scrape applesauce into a bowl using a rubber spatula.

Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add applesauce and banana, beating until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in coffee and vanilla.

Wonderful! I used a mix of half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. Used 1.5 large bananas. I skipped the coffee, and instead added 1/2 tsp almond extract for a nice nutty flavor. Served warm with reduced fat vanilla ice cream- WOW!!
