These are like little pieces of heaven! I absolutely love coconut and any type of macaroon. These little guys are sweetened stevia which means they are a low-carb, low-sugar treat that will have you wondering how they are so darn tasty!
Makes approximately 40 macaroons
4 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar leaf stevia*
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
4 1/2 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
40 raw almonds
1/4 cup stevia chocolate chips (I used Krisda)
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks are formed. Add sugar and extract, beat again for a few seconds. Fold in shredded coconut.
Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon, measure out macaroons and drop onto baking sheet. Top each one with an almond.Bake for 12-15 minutes. Rotating the sheets once halfway so they brown evenly. These can burn very quickly! Start checking on them after 10 minutes.Remove from oven and allow to fully cool.Little bits of heaven!
