Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Crisp, buttery, shortbread cookies are perfect with an afternoon cup of tea; Sola® and sugar-free chocolate chips make them a (secretly) healthy treat!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Sift the flour, Sola® sweetener, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut the softened butter into cubes and add to the flour mixture with the chocolate chips.
  3. Mix the ingredients together using your hands until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Roll the dough into a sausage shape (about two inches in diameter), wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place into the fridge to chill for 20 minutes (this allows the dough to firm up and makes it easier for cutting).
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut the roll of dough into 12 slices and place them, evenly spaced, onto the baking sheet.
  6. Place the sheet pan into the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden-brown. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before enjoying.

This recipe can be thrown together in minutes and is microwaved right in the mug you are going to eat it in!

Originating from Cuba, the minty, limey mojito may be the most refreshing cocktail in the world.  

These elegant, thin cookies are light and crispy, similar to a traditional tuiles. They are also very quick and hit the spot with a scoop of low-carb ice cream sandwiched between two. 

This smooth chocolate sauce is a snap to throw together and a perfect garnish for a bowl of ice cream or a crèpe. Keep some on hand to use in dessert recipes. 

Four hours of slow cooking equals melt-in-your-mouth meat, complemented by a sweet, sticky glaze that offers a hint of smokiness and spice.

Because Sola® caramelizes just like sugar, it makes perfect glazed carrots, with next to no calories! The star anise adds a subtle hint of fragrance without being overpowering, and the sesame seeds deliver a delicious texture. Serve these carrots with your favorite Asian-inspired meals.

Sola® Sweet and moist flaxseed and apple muffins are a delicious reduced sugar option which make for a satisfying breakfast treat!

Although it sounds like an odd addition to a cocktail, the egg white offers a luxurious, smooth texture and a frothy top.

Crème brulée is the quintessential French dessert; a creamy, baked, egg custard with a crisp, burnt sugar top.

This classic Asian glaze works equally well as a marinade or dipping sauce for fish and meat, as well as a stir-fry component.

The quest for a flaky, buttery pastry was harder than you’d think; many combinations of standard low-carb ingredients created a dull-tasting, dry crust.

Sola® has enabled these classically rich morsels to shed a heap of calories and retain their decadent taste and texture.

A margarita at a bar predominately consists of sugar syrup and can contain up to 500 calories - the frozen versions being the worst of offenders.
