Meringue Cookies

I had a request from the parentals to bake some cookies as they like to have something sweet with their coffee in the evening.
I brainstormed a couple of healthier versions of cookies- one a simple Meringue Cookie and one a Traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie.

You Will Need-

1/2 cup Natvia Baking Sugar
1/2 Cup Almond Meal
1 Tbsp Natvia Sugar Free Chocolate Powder
4 Egg Whites
1 tsp cream of tarter
Vanilla Essence

Whisk the egg whites until light and fluffy and then whisk in the vanilla, cream of tarter and chocolate powder.
Add  bit by bit, while whisking, the Natvia sugar.

Once combined add the almond meal and fold into the mixture.

Dollop the mix in cookie size mounds onto a lined baking tray and place in a preheated oven at 150 degrees.
Bake for 30 minutes.  Then reduce to 100 degrees and bake for a further 30 minutes.

Once cooled for fifteen minutes in the open oven transfer to a wire rack to cool.

These are delicately tasting cookies, that are low in fat and sugar and great for a sweet fix without the heavy feel for a cookie.

This recipe yields 12 cookies depending on the size you create at 25 calories and 1.6 grams of fat each.
