Ketogenic Diet: Low Carb Macaroons

I love coconut in every form – unsweetened coconut chips, coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream or butter, all of it is heavenly and perfect for keto- dairy free, high in saturated fat, low in protein and carbohydrate. It’s so versatile as a food for creating all kinds of delicious desserts.

I love making macaroons! These are so good on their own or with sugar free chocolate drizzled on top! See my Peanut Brittle Recipe for the chocolate recipe.

Low Carb Macaroons

Yield: 22 servings

Prep time: 20 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes


Egg Whites | 6 Large

Vanilla Extract | 1 tsp

Almond Meal | 1/2 Cup

Unsweetened Shredded Coconut | 2 Cups

Baking Soda | 1/2 tsp

Optional: Erythritol | 1/4 Cup or 1 tsp stevia


Preheat oven to 325°F-160°C. In a mixing bowl, whip the egg whites, baking soda and vanilla until well blended. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Slowly pour in the Erythritol or Stevia. If not using sweetener, use 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar. Whip until stiff peaks form. Remove from stand mixer or egg beaters and gently fold in the almond meal and coconut.

Drop the macaroon batter by rounded tablespoons about 1/2 to 1 inch 25mm apart on the parchment (macaroons don’t rise or spread, so you can put them close together).

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn off the oven heat, open the door slightly, and let the macaroons sit in the oven until cool – this keeps the moisture content down.

Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 dozen macaroons.
