yields 6

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs, yolk and white separated
  • pinch of cream of tartar (try not to substitute this, it's important for setting the eggs)
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese, room temperature or you can use plain Greek Yogurt as a substitute. 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp unrefined coconut sugar (or sugar of your choice.  Maple syrup or honey are other unrefined sugar options or you could also use stevia if you wanted to use a natural sweetener for zero sugar)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, tin foil, or spray with oil.
  3. Separate the eggs, keeping the whites and yolks in separate bowls. 
  4. If you have an electric mixer, use it for this step, if not, get ready for a few minutes of whisking! Add a pinch of cream of tartar to the egg whites and whip until they are stiff. Set aside.
  5. Whisk the yolks with room temperature cream cheese, salt and sweetener or sugar of your choice until completely blended and creamy.  
  6. Fold the yolk mixture into the whites very carefully.  Do not blend, only stir gently until combined. 
  7. Spoon out 6 portions onto your baking sheet.  
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes until they are puffy and golden brown. 
  9. Let cool and enjoy!
