As with every baked goods recipe featuring erythritol, you need to keep an eye on the cook time because the cookies will brown a little quicker than typical sugar-laden varieties. But a little hawk vision while cooking will be rewarded with a tasty treat. Erythritol has the tendency to taste very sweet, so you may not even get through the single serving of 3 cookies before you're superbly satisfied. Enjoy with a little milk if you're not sensitive, or better yet a steaming cup of hot tea for dunking. Enjoy!



  1. Sift ground oat bran, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside. 

  2. Using a mixer, cream yogurt, oil, and ‘sugars’ together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add egg and egg whites, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined, 5 to 10 seconds. Mix in chocolate pieces. Dough will be a little runny. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate in the bowl for 24 to 36 hours. Dough may be used in batches, and can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours. 

  3. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 176 C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 

  4. Scoop 6 golf ball-sized dough balls onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and 14-16 minutes until golden brown but still soft. Remove from the oven, let cool a little, then transfer cookies onto a rack or counter to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Chill the dough for at least 24 hours before baking it, and preferably up to 36 hours. This allows the dry ingredients time to soak up the wet ones, which results in a firmer dough.

This dough mixture tends to brown faster on the surface while the cookies are still not baked through. Keep an eye on them. They get more brown than your typical chocolate chip cookies, but are still soft and delicious.
