To prepare this dessert, follow these steps:

Firstly, put the butter and the white chocolate in a pot over low heat and melt them. Then remove them and let them cool.

Secondly, beat the eggs in a bowl along with the stevia, the vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Continue by slowly adding the mixture of butter and chocolate. Keep beating to ensure that everything mixes together properly.

Thirdly, add the flour after sifting it so that there are no lumps. Keep beating the mixture.

Then, chop the walnuts (a handful or to taste) and add them to the batter, making sure that they are distributed evenly.

Finally, grease the mold with a little butter and add the batter. Bake at 356 degrees F for about 30 minutes, or 40 minutes if you like it drier. Now you’re ready to dig in!

Sugar-free coffee mousse

The ingredients for this recipe are as follows:

  • 3 medium-sized eggs
  • 7 fluid ounces of cream for whipping (low-fat)
  • 5 fluid ounces of coffee
  • 0.5 ounces of stevia
  • A few ounces of sugar-free chocolate
Coffee mousse

In order to make this recipe, follow these steps:

Start by separating the egg whites from the yolks. Set the whites aside and beat the yolks in a bowl along with the stevia.

Continue by putting the yolks in a pot at medium heat along with the (already prepared) coffee. Keep stirring to prevent the eggs from coagulating or lumps from forming.

Once you have an even mixture, remove the pot from the stove and let it cool. It will need to be heated for about five minutes in order for the eggs to cook.

Then, put the (chilled) cream in a bowl and whip it. Also be sure to whip the coffee mixture thoroughly. Add it to the bowl of whipped cream with a spatula. Use a light hand to avoid breaking the bubbles.

Next, beat the egg whites and add them to the bowl in the same manner, using outside-in movements. The mixture should be foamy, with plenty of little bubbles spread evenly throughout the mixture.

Finally, put the mousse in the containers of your choice, and then put them in the fridge. Leave the mousse there for at least six hours so it can set properly. Generally, it’s best to leave it overnight.

Your delicious sugar-free mousse is now ready to serve! To add a final touch, consider adding a little chocolate on top.

Sugar-free “Palmerita” cookies

The simple ingredients for this recipe are:

  • A puff pastry sheet
  • Stevia
  • Water
Palmerita cookies

In order to make these cookies, simply follow these steps:

Firstly, preheat the oven to 356 degrees F. Then, fold the sheet of puff pastry inward, from the right to the center and from the left to the center. Fold it again, joining the two sides at the center.

Continue by cutting the tube of puff pastry into pieces measuring approximately one centimeter. Place them flat on parchment paper on the oven tray. Then, press the middle part down and separate the upper tips slightly.

Next, cover the cookies with a little syrup made from a teaspoon of stevia and a teaspoon of water. You can also sprinkle an extra bit of stevia on top.

Finally, bake the cookies at 356 degrees for about 15 minutes until they’re golden brown.

As you can see, there are plenty of sugar-free diabetic desserts that are as delicious and appetizing as those that contain sugar.
