Preparing the Egg Mixture

  1. Beat the Egg and Sweetener: In a mixing bowl, combine 1 medium egg, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and 60 grams of erythritol. Beat with a mixer until the mixture becomes fluffy and well-combined.
  2. Add Cocoa Powder: Carefully add 20 grams of cocoa powder to the egg mixture. Mix gently with a spatula to incorporate the cocoa powder without losing the volume of the egg mixture.
  3. Add Dry Milk: Add 2 tablespoons of dry milk to the mixture and stir with the spatula until a uniform batter is obtained.

Preparing the Nuts

  1. Grind the Nuts: Place 160-180 grams of peanuts (or other nuts of your choice) in the bowl of a blender. Grind the nuts to your desired consistency. You can leave some larger pieces for added crunch.
  2. Combine Nuts and Batter: Add the ground nuts to the egg mixture. Mix well with the spatula until the nuts are evenly distributed and a uniform mass is formed.

Shaping and Baking the Cookies

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 160°C (320°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Shape the Cookies: Using a spoon, drop portions of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, carefully shaping them into round cookies. Leave enough space between each cookie to allow for spreading.
  3. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cookies are firm and slightly browned around the edges.

Cooling and Serving

  1. Cool the Cookies: Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheet for a few minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  2. Serve: Once cooled, arrange the cookies on a serving dish. Enjoy these delicious, crunchy, and healthy cookies with your favorite beverage!
