    Macaroons Anyone ...these are Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free and Sugar Free

    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 !

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

    INSTRUCTIONS
    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.




    NOTES
    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 just can't believe I posted this (above) in July ... and now we're in September.

    I have to say these are just perfect for a tasty bite with a cup of tea on a rainy Autumnal like day.

    Give them a try and see what you think sunny

    I don't mind giving older posts a bump up - especially these - so handy to nibble on with a cup of tea when you may be writing the first of this years Christmas cards ... santa
