coconut macaroons


Adapted from: http://joepastry.com/2009/coconut_macaroon_recipe/



Yield: 12 servings

Serving size: 1 small coconut macaroon cookie



6 Tbsp. (85ml) coconut cream OR heavy cream (>30% fat)

1 extra-large egg white (~35g) OR two small egg whites

3 Tbsp. (45g) powered erythritol or xylitol

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract OR vanilla bean paste

1/4 tsp. salt

1 + 1/4 cup (100g) dried coconut flakes (unsweetened)



1. Preheat your oven to 375F (190C), then whisk together the egg white, sweetener and salt until frothy and everything has dissolved together.


2. Next, mix in the vanilla and coconut cream and mix well.


3. Slowly mix in the dried coconut flakes, the mixture will seem dry at first but continue mixing and it will come together.


4. Scoop into 12 small balls and bake on a non-stick baking mat or baking paper for 6 minutes, rotate the pan, then bake for another 6-7 minutes. The longer you bake them, the drier and crumblier they will get. Cool fully before serving.

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
