I am trying to make healthier version of cookies. I was following a youtube recipe that was basically the following:
92g Egg Whites
30 Keto Wheat flour
30g Coconut Flour
6g Baking Soda
62g Whey Protein (2 Scoops)
32g Pbfit (Or whatever you have Pb2)
10g Zero calorie Sweetener
170g Low fat Greek Yoghurt
10g Vanilla Extract
30g Sugar free Chocolate Chips
Here is the video I was following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iA-L82HuRU8&list=FLLhZ4_3AHzDd_qPN_ZbfHDg&index=28&t=66s
I baked in the oven for about 8 minutes. The cookies are terrible. They aren't cookies they are just dry pancakes. I ended up throwing it away.
I did some research, and I'm finding some conflicting information. Some people say that sponginess is due to too much flour, some say its due to too much leavening agent. Some say refrigerate dough, some say do not because it causes the cookie to rise more. I'm not sure what produces a chewy, soft actual cookie. Intuitively I would think a chewy cookie implies less rising + more density. My plan is to try the following recipe based on my research:
30g All Purpose Flour
15g Coconut Flour
Some amount of Peanut Butter or Melted Regular butter, just some fat for moisture
10 g of Zero Calorie Sweetener
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
Salt (to slow down the decomposition of baking soda)
I will also refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. And will bake in oven at 375 (effectively is 350) for 15 minutes or until cookie is golden brown.
Do you guys think this will result in the texture I want?
