Macaroons Anyone ? These are Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free and Sugar Free

Sugar Free Macaroons |

These Macaroons are Low Carb, Sugar Free, Gluten Free and Grain Free, and are a fabulous way to use up any egg whites you may have left over. It’s a really adaptable recipe whereby you can dip them in chocolate, add lemon or orange zest, add some ginger or some vanilla and cinnamon. You could be spoilt for choice !

Ingredients - Serves Twenty
4 egg whites
2 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste
1 tsp vanilla
2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut

Clean a large bowl with kitchen paper to ensure it is free of grease or oil, otherwise your egg whites won't whisk well. Whisk the egg whites with the stevia, to form stiff peaks.
Add the vanilla and the coconut and gently mix to combine.
Line a baking tray with a non stick liner or baking paper. Roll a spoonful of macaroon mixture into a small firm ball and place evenly on the baking tray.
Bake at 180C/350F for10-12 minutes depending on your oven and the humidity.

Optional, you may like the subtle vanilla flavour of these macaroons, but others have enjoyed adapting these by adding almond essence, cinnamon or dipping in chocolate. The choice is yours ...

I'm going to give making coconut butter a go. Then if it works, use it as a video. I just love coconut but have never made it into butter. But the Breville should be up for the job.

Wishing you a great week and boogie boogie.

PS: Do you eat coconut butter? I hear it's killer. Can't wait to find out.

Hi Ivy - I've never made coconut butter but many people do and love it. I believe this is a good guide which you may find useful

However, can't wait to see your video
