ridiculous chocolate pecan cookies and almond coconut cookies

these cookies are dangerously close to busting the diet-- live on the edge but don't eat too many!

both are adopted from recipes by sarah carey on martha stewart's delicious website

  • 3 tablespoons truvia (use 6 tablespoons of other sweetener)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • pinch of salt
  • small shot of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup well chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (or chopped  > 60% chocolate bar)

combine above ingredients then add all the egg white and combine well but do not overmix

  • one egg white
  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of another egg white


  • add 1/4 cup of well chopped raisins (optional)

bake 325 --they spread a lot on the pan--makes 4 very large or 6 regular sized cookies
bake from 18 to 25 minutes--you can tell visibly when they are fully set--take them out just before they look completely done
