Keto Chocolate Caramel Meringue Cookies
The holidays are fast approaching and I couldn’t be more excited!
I LOVE to bake cookies during the holidays but I have been in South Africa the past few weeks so as soon as I got home from a LONG flight, I turned on my camera (do not judge how tired I look… one flight was 16 1/2 hours long!) and made a YouTube video making my recipe for all of you!
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CARAMEL MERINGUE COOKIES
To make these delicious bites of heaven, I used the NEW Chocolate Caramel LMNT!
I can’t believe how perfect using LMNT works for these cookies! You can use any flavor you want. Mix it up; try the raspberry salt LMNT if you do not like chocolate. Any flavor will work for these delicious meringues.
TIPS ON MAKING MERINGUE COOKIES
- Use Room Temperature Eggs
- Do not allow any water to touch the whites: make sure your bowl is dry, the spatula is dry and the hand mixer is dry.
- Do not spray the parchment with fat. Place the cookie batter on dry parchment. Spray will cause the cookies to fall.
- Use erythritol instead of allulose. Allulose will work BUT they are very sticky.
Keto Chocolate Caramel Meringue Cookies
- 4 large egg whites room temperature
- 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 cup powdered erythritol
- 1 packet Chocolate Caramel LMNT (or any flavor)
- Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl and use a hand mixer on high until soft peaks form.
- Add the powdered sweetener and LMNT. Mix on high until stiff peaks form.
- Place the mixture into a piping bag with a star point tip attached (or large Ziplock and cut a small 1/4 inch hole in one corner).
- Pipe out rounded tablespoon sized cookies spaced 1/2 inch apart onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 45 minutes. Turn the oven off, slightly crack open the oven and leave the cookies in the oven for 1 hour.
- Store extras in an airtight container on the counter for 4 weeks.
TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
Doesn’t Jess look AMAZING? I’m so proud of her
“Anyone who has toyed with the idea of going full carnivore for their mental health…DO IT! As background, I have been severely depressed and anxious for quite literally my entire life, with diagnoses of bipolar and BPD coming and going because it was hard to pinpoint. Hospitalized twice for my mental health.
I’ve tried quite honestly just about every medication they make for mental health, and none of them actually made me feel THAT much better, and side effects (including permanent tremors) were pretty awful. I’ve been carnivore since mid August, and the change is honestly astounding. About a month in, I started to realize I was smiling for literally no reason? I was like ok that’s weird but not bad weird.
I started to notice my mood in general was more stable day by day. I just felt calm and happy, and a lot less stressed out. I’m going to be going off my antidepressants because I honestly don’t think I need them anymore and I’m tired of side effects. And not at all because my life stabilized in any way, I am a PhD student in a difficult family situation with relationship issues related to my mental health, a 14 year old with pathological demand avoidance, oh and I just moved from Texas to Alabama rather suddenly because of school. So yeah, there is literally no reason for me to be as happy and content as I am, but here we are. My physical health issues are improving!
With Ehlers danlos syndrome and POTS, I have to consume absurd amounts of electrolytes, so honestly that first month to 6 weeks of carnivore was brutal physically as my body adjusted, but the mental improvements were enough for me to push through it, and I’m starting to feel pretty amazing physically too, to the point where I am back into weightlifting after a long break because I just couldn’t. Not quite ready to get off the meds for POTS yet, but I think that will come with time.
Did I mention I’ve also lost 20 lbs? In 2 months?
I honestly feel incredible!
It’s such a tremendous shift in every possible way. Pics are from 2 months ago and about a week ago, I’ve actually lost even more since then.“ -Jess
