Coconut Macaroons : Low Carb

This is another lovely recipe idea from Ewelina ... who is a Type 1 Diabetic ... she says:
"Diabetes and cakes doesn’t sound like a great combination. Well not to me, I have always loved baking and after diagnosis with diabetes type 1 in 2011 I had to find some way of combining these two. It is quite challenging and anyone who knows a little bit about baking will agree with me. How to bake without using flour or sugar?! After long research and checking hundreds of recipes I came across some great ideas. There are sugar substitutes that work quite well in most recipes and there are many different low carb flours and flour substitutes. I’m still learning and discovering new products and recipes but with every cake I make I know more and more. Now I’m convinced that low carb cakes can be delicious and we don’t need to feel sorry for not having regular cakes. Cakes from my blog are equally good (if not better) and you can eat them without worrying too much about your sugar levels"

I do quite often enjoy a low carb treat with my cup of tea, and looking at the picture above, couldn't you just reach out and eat one of these coconut macaroons with a nice cuppa? Well my kettle is on ...

and here is the list of ingredients:
(makes 24 macaroons)
· 250g desiccated coconut
· 140 g xylitol
· 100 g coconut oil
· 2 egg whites
· 4 tbsp. milk

The carbohydrates and calories details:
Whole mixture 50g Carbohydrates 2847 Calories
1 macaroon 2g Carbohydrates 118 Calories

Now do go over to Ewelina's blog to see how to make these tasty macaroons, the link is here

Hope you may enjoy them soon

All the best Jan

I love macaroons, and the fact that there are so few ingredients make them extra appealing!
