How to Make Low Carb Mocha Meringue Cookies
Preheat oven to 275F.
In the clean and dry bowl of a stand mixer, add the egg whites and beat until you get soft peaks. Add in the cream of tartar and mix in the swerve slowly, and continue beating until you have stiff peaks.
Add in the vanilla and coffee extracts and slowly add the unsweetened cocoa powder. Mix until well combined. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a large clean and dry bowl and a hand mixer.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm. Leave in the oven for 1 hour, with the oven turned off and they will be slightly chewy on the inside. Leave in the oven for 2 hours and they will be crunchy all the way through.
Store at room temperature in an airtight container for 2-5 days, if they even last that long!!

Tips for Making Perfect Keto Meringue Cookies
- Cool dry days are usually recommended to make your meringue cookies. Humidity is not meringue's friend.
- The key to getting stiff peaks for the cookies is to make sure you're using fresh cream of tartar. As cream of tartar get old, it loses its ability to help stiffen the egg whites.
- You know the whites are ready when you see a slight glossy color and firm peaks when lifting your beaters.
- Fresh eggs will create the most volume, because they’re slightly acidic which helps stabilize the proteins.
- Always use glass, metal, or ceramic bowls when whipping egg whites. Plastic bowls should never be used for making meringue because most often, plastic bowls have a coating that won’t allow the whites to rise.
