Almond moppies de luxe
The garnish includes a sweetened edge. I made this with ERYTHRITOL. This is a natural, healthy substitute for granulated sugar. However, it has a slightly less sweet power (75%) but it does not have any spouts, which stevia often has. It is a very suitable sugar substitute for people who experience a strange taste with stevia, for children, and as a substitute for sugar in daily use (for example the scoop of sugar in the coffee / tea) You can also bake with it, but it has reduced sweet power. I often use erythritol as a garnish, as decoration and for example to make sugar treats. Erythritol contains no carbohydrates, does not affect blood sugar levels and is tooth-friendly.
You need this:
- 350 grams of almond flour
- 1 protein (if vegan, see explanation below)
- 2 big tablespoons greensweet extra sweet
- possibly water
For the garnish
- 5 tablespoons of organic skimmed cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon greensweet erythritol
This is how you make it:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Stir the Greensweet stevia and egg white through the almond flour and knead as an almond paste. If everything stays too granular, add a tablespoon of water. Use your banana puree, stir this through the flour and stevia instead of the egg white. Remove jokes from the food and place them on the baking tray. Bake the mops in the middle of the oven in about 35 minutes, keep checking, the jokes must be discolored golden brown. Let the jokes cool down.
Make a glaze with the cocoa powder, erythritol and add some water while you keep stirring. Always roll a joke through the glaze. Fill a bowl with erythritol sugar and roll the mop through the sugar. Let it dry further.
Do you want to make a vegan variant? Replace the protein in the recipe for a small half banana, which you purée very well with two tablespoons of water.
