It sounds impossible, I know.
How can a chocolate chip cookie contain no sugar?
Actually, scratch that, I know how a cookie can contain no sugar. You simply leave the sugar out. The real question is, How can a chocolate chip cookie contain no sugar and still taste good? I bet that’s the thing you’re having trouble figuring out.
I’m just gonna go ahead and stop all your troubling. It is possible.
And I did it.
I made chocolate chip cookies that not only taste great, but also have absolutely no sugar added to them at all. Not one little grain. And guess what? There’s no honey either. Or maple syrup. Or molasses. Or stevia. Or probably any other usual sweetener you can think of.
So how’d I do it?
Those insanely sweet fruits are my new best friend. All you have to do is soak them in water at least overnight, blend them a bit until they turn into a thick paste, and BAM, awesome all natural sweetener. Pretty cool, huh?
It’s even cooler when you use it to make amazing chocolate chip cookies.
