Ingredients

    2 T unsweetened cocoa
    1 tsp. instant espresso powder or instant coffee
    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    4 large egg whites
    1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/2 cup Stevia in the Raw

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat. (I used two baking sheets.)

2. In a small bowl, combine cocoa, espresso powder or instant coffee, and cinnamon. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until frothy using an electric mixer set to medium speed. Add cream of tartar, salt, and vanilla; increase speed to high, and continue beating until soft peaks form. Slowly add stevia, 1 T at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and mixture becomes glossy. Gently fold in cocoa mixture until combined.

4. Using a rubber spatula, transfer mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. (Or cut 1/4 inch off the corner of a large plastic bag.) Pipe small mounds onto prepared baking sheets.

5. Bake for about 45 minutes. Turn oven off and leave cookies in for at least 45 minutes more. Remove from oven; transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

Serving Size: Makes about 30 cookies
