Softly leafing through an old, faded notebook, I came across a recipe that looked familiar yet at the same time different. The ingredient list I knew, but the technique was different. It was a simple cookie I baked growing up called a chocolate chip meringue, but this recipe was called the Forgotten Cookie…
…I recently discovered a dark chocolate chip made by Lily’s. This brand tastes great and has zero grams of sugar, are gluten-free and non-GMO. These chips are made with stevia and erythritol.
Now I just got done saying that stuff ending in “ol” is best avoided. Erythritol is a little different. Our bodies do not digest erythritol, so most of it is excreted. If consumed in large amounts, some people experience digestive upset. In this recipe I am willing to make the trade-off for no sugar. Do what works best for you. There are options.
