Tips for Perfect Coconut Keto Meringues
Though these Keto Meringue Cookies are easy to make, there are a few tips to ensure they turn out great every time:
What Sweetener is Best for Sugar Free Meringues?
You can use most any brand of Keto sugar substitutes but you'll want to use the confectioners form. I used Swerve in this recipe, but you can used powdered Monk Fruit or Allulose if you prefer. The sweetness may vary a bit from depending on the type you use, so you may want to taste the meringue as you go.
How to Help Egg Whites Stiffen
You'll want to always start out with a really clean and dry bowl. Moisture can prevent your eggs white from reaching proper peaks.
If your making these in a humid environment, it may be a little harder to get the meringues to form. Try adding a ½ teaspoon white vinegar to the egg whites. This can help to stabilize them.
Resist Over-Mixing Coconut Meringues
When adding the coconut to this recipe, fold it in gently. Over-mixing could result in your meringues deflating.
Are Meringue Cookies Keto?
These sugar free Coconut Meringue Cookies are PERFECT on Keto! They only have a trace amount of carbs comes from the coconut but because there is so little per cookie, there's less than one net carb per cookie.
