Almond moppies de luxe
The garnish includes a sugared 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 has no aftertaste, which stevia often does. It is a very suitable sugar substitute for people who experience a strange aftertaste with stevia, for children, and as a replacement for sugar in daily use (for example the spoon of sugar in the coffee / tea). You can also bake with it, but it has a reduced sugar content. sweet power. I often use erythritol for garnish, as decoration and to make sugar candies, for example. Erythritol contains no carbohydrates, does not affect blood sugar and is tooth-friendly.
You need this:
- 350 grams almond flour
- 1 egg white (if vegan, see explanation below)
- 2 heaping tablespoons of greensweet extra sweet
- possibly water
For the garnish
- 5 tablespoons organic low-fat 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 through an almond paste. If everything remains gritty, add a tablespoon of water. If you are using banana puree, stir it into the flour and stevia instead of the egg white. Twist mops out of the food and place them on the baking tray. Bake the mops in the middle of the oven for about 35 minutes, keep checking in between, the mops should be golden brown. Let the mops cool.
Make a glaze with the cocoa powder, erythritol and add little water while stirring vigorously. Roll a mop through the glaze at a time. Fill a bowl with erythritol sugar and roll the mop in the sugar. Let it dry further.
Do you want to make a vegan version? Replace the protein in the recipe with a small half banana, which you puree very well with two tablespoons of water.
