  • 200 g brown sugar
  • 250 g softened butter
  • 2 egg whites
  • 300 g flour
  • 200 g rolled oats
  • 90 g Cacao Nibs
  • 1,5 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda


  1. Beat butter, sugar and egg whites for a couple of minutes until fluffy. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Mix just until combined. Put dough onto a slightly oiled or floured surface, shape into a ball and cut into 4 quarters. Roll out each quarter into a 5 to 6 cm diameter log. Wrap logs into cling film and let the dough firm up in the fridge for about 4 hours or until form.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius (375 F). Cut of 0,5 cm slices of the dough and transfer cookies onto a lined baking tray. Bake for 12 Minutes, take out of the oven and let cool completely before storing them.
