  • Combine egg whites, espresso, vanilla extract, and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat until egg whites begin to form soft peaks, about 2 minutes. Slowly mix in sugar and stevia powder. Continue to beat until meringue becomes glossy and stiff peaks form.

  • Gently fold cocoa powder, cacao nibs, and coffee grounds into the meringue. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops start to turn golden and crispy, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't like the taste of coffee, just prepare without the brewed espresso and the coffee grounds. Still a decadent chocolate meringue cookie!

Substitute mini chocolate chips for the cacao nibs if desired.
