The less caloric version of a chocolate-filled pastry with lower fat and sugar content, and higher protein, fiber, mineral, and antioxidant content – all thanks to cocoa nibs.

    Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp cane sugar (or ⅓ tsp. stevia)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp softened butter (or ghee)
  • ⅓ cup cocoa nibs (or dark chocolate)

Directions

In a bowl, mix flour with baking powder, yogurt, applesauce and softened (not melted) butter.

Knead the lump-free dough by hand and divide into 8 pieces. Press each dough piece by hand, fill with cocoa nibs (or dark chocolate) and crimp the edges.

Place the filled pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 220 degrees Celsius (425 °F) for 20 minutes.

• If you use chocolate – it will melt inside
• If you use cocoa nibs – they will be softer, but won’t melt
