I was shopping yesterday, and a man standing outside of a chocolate shop tempted me with a chocolatey fudge sample.
I DEFINITELY TOOK THE CHOCOLATELY FUDGE.
You know when you eat something sweet like that, and are then CRAVING all the sweet things?
Pacing around for my kitchen, I was looking for something snacky and sweet, but I know how my body responds to sugar: Nooot very well.
These “Timbits”, a Canadian version of a donut hole, are not a dry protein baked good. No, no!
These are super moist and have the consistency of fudge with the perfect length of baking.
Depending on which sweetener you use, these can have as little as 1g of sugar per bite, in comparison to a chocolate Timbit of the same mass from Tim Horton’s:
3 grams Fat
14 grams Carbs (8 of which are sugar)
1 gram Protein
Nutritional Information per Homemade Flourless Timbit (Makes 12)
1 gram Fat
3 grams Carbs
4 grams Protein
Almost 3 for the price of 1?? WOO HOO!
- 28g (2 tbsp) coconut flour
- 10g (2 tbsp) chocolate sugar free or normal chocolate jello pudding mix
- 14g (7 tbsp) baking cocoa
- 1 tbsp erythritol, stevia, or coconut sugar (any granulated sweetener will do!)
- 1 scoop vanilla or chocolate whey protein
- pinch salt
- 1 egg
- 110g (1/2 cup) 2% greek yogurt
FOR THE “ICING SUGAR”
- 2 tbsp vanilla whey protein
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, and then fold together thoroughly. The dough should be thick- between a batter and a cookie dough.
- Using a bit of coconut oil on your hands (to ensure that the dough doesn’t stick to you), roll the dough into 12 balls.
- Bake for 6 minutes. They will harden slightly after being removed from the oven, but over-baking them will cause them to lose their fudgey texture!
- Allow to cool for five minutes before dusting with whey powder and enjoying!
If you’d like a glazed donut, melting coconut oil and stirring in a sweetener will do the trick!
On another note, it’s my Undergrad convocation today and I am beyond excited! Perhaps to celebrate… Timbits??
Keep rocking on,
