Coconut Macaroons – Low Carb Keto Dessert Recipe

October 16, 2019 0 By William Morgan

Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
a coconut macaroons. This low-carb treat
is very easy to make and is perfect for
your next party, or when your low-carb
diet wants something little sweet.
Let’s get started. Begin by adding one
can of coconut milk to a sauce pot on
medium heat. Add a sugar substitute equal
to 3/4 cups of regular sugar. stir with a
whisk to combine. Let come to a simmer
and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add
some xanthan gum and mix again until the
xanthan gum is fully incorporated.
Continue to cook and stir until the mix
begins to take on more of a syrupy
consistency. Remove from the heat and let
cool. Add just a bit of salt; a little
almond extract; and some vanilla extract.
Give this a mix to combine. Here is where
you can create your own recipe by adding
some other flavors like cinnamon, or add
some food coloring for a festive holiday
dessert. To a large bowl, add 5 cups of
unsweetened coconut flakes. Pour the
coconut milk in and mix to combine.
Be sure that all of the coconut is fully
coated. Add 2 large egg whites to a
separate mixing bowl. Add some cream of
tartar and beat this with an electric
mixer until stiff peaks form. Add the
whipped egg whites to the coconut and
gently fold and mix until fully
incorporated. Line a baking sheet with
parchment paper and use a small cookie
scoop to place the coconut onto the
sheet. This recipe makes about 54
macaroons so you’ll need to do these in
a couple of batches. This next step is
optional, but I like to sprinkle a little
extra sugar substitute over the tops.
Bake in the middle of a preheated 325°F
oven for 24 to 28 minutes, or
until they become golden brown. Remove
and let cool just a bit. Transfer to a
wire rack to cool completely. These
macaroons are crispy on the outside and
soft and fluffy on the inside. There you
have it folks! My version of coconut macaroons. A very
easy to make low carb treat. I hope you
