Keto Coconut Macaroons

Need an easy and delicious keto treat? Well, I believe my Keto Coconut Macaroons will have you dancing for joy! This recipe is so simple that even if you’re a novice low carb keto baker, you will be telling everyone about your new found baking skills.

Do you know that for years I avoided any recipe that had a meringue component? I don’t know why I was so afraid of something as simple as beating egg whites. It was our daughter, Michelle that finally got me over this irrational fear.  Silly huh? I think it was the idea of tossing a bunch of ingredients if I failed, that stopped me from even trying.

It makes me think of how many things I have not attempted because I was afraid to fail? The truth is we will all make mistakes, but if we choose to keep trying, the day finally arrives when the thing we feared is now mastered. I don’t know about you, but this girl is a major work in progress. Which is why I’m so grateful for the grace of God that meets me at my point of weakness.

How are you facing your fears? I know this is a recipe for Keto Coconut Macaroons, but can you agree that life’s lessons are wrapped up in our every day experiences and that it’s up to us to see that we are surrounded by opportunities to grow.

Ok, now that I shared a little of my well earned life wisdom, lets’s get back to egg whites. The only thing to keep in mind for perfect meringue is to make sure no egg yolks get mixed in with the whites. It’s the protein in the yolks that can prevent them from fully rising. Adding a little cream of tarter to your egg whites will further stabilize your meringue. After, separating thousands of eggs in the course of my life, I think it’s safe to say I had the skills to tackle beating egg whites. Thanks for convincing me Michelle!

I especially love serving my Keto Coconut Macaroons to friends and family who are not eating a keto plan, it’s a great way to introduce a treat that they can duplicate easily.
