Milo Chocolate Cookies

Today a friend gave me a challenge: bake something with Milo. I made cookies. Here's hoping that she likes them!

I used stevia, a natural sweetener from the Stevia plant, to replace most of the sugar. Stevia is A LOT sweeter than sugar so you only need to use a small amount. If I was using sugar, I would have used about 3/4 Cup, but I only used 2 Tbsp Stevia. If you are using this sweetner don't go overboard with it... too much will be far too sweet and also leave a weird aftertaste. 

Milo Chocolate Cookies

Makes 32

160 g apple sauce
2 Tbsp Stevia
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 Cup self raising flour
1 1/2 Cup Milo
150 g dark chocolate drops

1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a couple of baking trays with baking paper.

2. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, add the stevia, brown sugar and Milo. Mix to combine. Add the apple sauce and egg and combine well. Add the chocolate drops and mix again.

3. Spoon teaspoonful amounts of the mixture onto the baking trays and bake for about 15 minutes.

4. Cool cookies on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
