Low-carb meringues

Low-carb meringues

These crispy white treats are traditionally made of egg whites and sugar. We swapped the sugar for erythritol, making these crunchy bites the ideal low-carb dessert! We added a hint of vanilla for a beautiful golden hue and delicate flavor.

Ingredients

  • 4 4 large egg whitelarge egg whites
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup 175 ml powdered erythritol

Instructions

Instructions are for 12 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites with the whisk attachment of your stand mixer, on medium speed for 3 minutes, then bring the speed up to medium high until soft white peaks form.
  3. Lower the speed back to medium. Mix in the salt and vanilla.
  4. Add the powdered sweetener 1 tablespoons at a time until it’s all incorporated. You will have to stop once or twice and scrape the sides down with a spatula.
  5. Bring the speed of the mixer back up to medium high and continue mixing until stiff white peaks form.
  6. To make the meringues, you can just add dollops of the sweet egg mixture to the sheet pan, but for pretty little puffs, using a piping bag or a plastic bag with the tip cut off.
  7. Make 24 puffs and bake for 50-55 minutes until firm and lightly golden, but not browned.
  8. Remove from the oven and let them cool.
