Any way to get these to fluff up at all without baking powder? Dietitian comment: This recipe does not call for baking powder. The egg whites help with the 'fluff'.

Just what I've been looking for. I am diabetic so use splenda for the sugar portion in recipe. I think I can allow myself this treat on occasion.
