Ingredients

  • 250 ml (1 cup) almond flour

  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) ground flaxseeds

  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) Splenda brown sugar blend

  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) cocoa

  • 5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder

  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) liquid egg whites (or the equivalent of 2 egg whites)

  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) 0% plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 egg

  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) unsweetened vanilla soy milk

  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) instant coffee (regular or decaffeinated)

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. In a small bowl, mix the flour, flaxseeds, brown sugar, cocoa, and baking powder. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, mix the egg whites, Greek yogurt, and egg using an electric mixer until the texture is light.

  4. In a microwave-safe cup, heat the soy milk for 20 seconds. Add the instant coffee and stir until completely dissolved, then incorporate it into the liquid mixture.

  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

  6. On a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper, drop about 30 ml (2 tablespoons) of dough per cookie, leaving 5 cm (2 inches) of space between each one.
