These small tablespoon-size brownie bites have enough rich chocolate flavor to satisfy you with just one. The good news is you get 4 cookies in one serving. They're pretty easy to put together and delicious fresh out of the oven. To re-create that melty dark experience, just microwave a few cookies for 15-20 seconds days later. They hold up great. As with any dessert sweetened with erythritol, feel free to cut the 'sugar substitute' down and you'll still get lots of sweetness.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F, 176 C. Combine ground oat bran, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl, and whisk to combine. Set aside.

  2. Combine the bittersweet chocolate and yogurt in a small heatproof bowl that fits on top of a small saucepan without falling in. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in the saucepan over high, reduce to a simmer, then set the bowl on top. Stir until completely melted. Remove bowl from saucepan to cool slightly. Chocolate yogurt mixture will thicken considerably, but this is okay.

  3. Combine eggs, erythritol, protein and erythritol ‘brown sugar’ in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed to combine, scraping down the sides. Increase speed to high and beat until fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping the bowl. Add the ginger and vanilla. Beat to combine.

  4. Add the melted chocolate mixture and beat on medium speed to combine. Add the oat bran mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Remove bowl from mixer. Add the remaining bittersweet chocolate chips and fold to combine.

  5. Scoop the loose dough into generous 1-tablespoon portions. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet, placing each scoop 3 inches apart. Bake until cracks and edges are firm, 8 to 10 minutes.

  6. Let cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets, and transfer them to a wire rack or counter top.
