Who doesn’t love Tiramisu, seriously. This was another recipe that I tackled to see if I could make this into something that was suitable for a clean diet. To my utter surprise, I think I did it.
This is an advanced recipe but the original recipe of Tiramisu is certainly no 5 minute job either so if you are in the mood to play in the kitchen, read on.
My girl Nath had some of this creation and she really enjoyed it so it passed the taste test. 🙂
– 6 large egg whites
– 1/4 cup ground oats (to make oat flour), or equivalent flour
– 1/2 tsp cream of tartar (or if you don’t have use 1 tsp baking powder)
– 3 tbs vanilla extract
– 1/3 cup sweetener or equivalent Stevia
– 500g of 0% fat fromage frais or 0% fat greek yogurt or (low fat ricotta cheese as last option IMO)
– 1 shot of espresso (I used instant expresso)
– big sheet of parchment baking paper or a big rectangle nonstick pan.
– 1/8 cup cocoa powder or if you are hardcore, use chocolate protein powder
This paragraph will have you create the “cake” part of tiramisu instead of using Ladyfingers. Set the oven to 350F or 180C. Using a hand mixer or equivalent attachment on a food processor, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, oat flour, and 1tsp vanilla extract together until you have stiff peaks. Pour the egg white mixture onto the parchment paper which lines the big pan (or use a oil sprayed pan) and smooth the top of the mixture. Put into the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden.
In a big bowl, mix the fromage frais, remaining 2 tbs vanilla extract, and sweetener together. When the egg white mixture is done, pull out of the oven and evenly pour the expresso onto it. Once this is done, cut it down the middle so that you have two sheets.
Using another pan half the size of the one you used for baking the egg whites, lay down the first egg white sheet, then smooth 1/2 of the cheese mixture on top. Sprinkle on half of the cocoa powder. Then lay down the next sheet and repeat.
