Are These Coconut Macaroons Keto?

Sure, besides the fact that these coconut macaroons taste incredibly delicious and can be made in such a short time, they are also keto-friendly. They are made with low-carb sweeteners and taste even better than regular coconut macaroons.

Ingredients Needed

A great thing about these keto coconut macaroons is that they require only a few easy ingredients that you probably have already in your pantry. Here is everything you need:

Ingredients Keto Coconut Macaroons
  • Egg Whites – These are the main ingredient and act as a binder for the coconut macaroons. Make sure they are at room temperature.
  • Sweetener – Use your favorite keto-friendly powdered sweetener, such as Swerve or monk fruit, to ensure it mixes well.
  • Vanilla Extract – Use the best quality vanilla extract that you can find.
  • Shredded Coconut – Use unsweetened shredded coconut and check the label to make sure it doesn’t have any hidden high-carb ingredients.
  • Coconut Oil – It helps bind all the ingredients together. It solidifies in the fridge, helping the macaroons hold their shape.

How To Make Keto Coconut Macaroons

You will love how easy it is to prepare these keto coconut macaroons. You will need only a few minutes to prepare and bake them. Here is everything you have to do:

Preparation: Begin by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking and for easy cleanup. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C), so it’s ready to go once your macaroons are prepared.

Mix Wet Ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, vigorously whisk together the eggs, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and your choice of sweetener for about 30 seconds or until the mixture is thoroughly combined and slightly frothy.

Ensure the eggs are at room temperature and the coconut oil is cooled to prevent the eggs from cooking the eggs when mixed.

Incorporate Coconut: Gradually fold in the shredded coconut using a fork or spatula, making sure the coconut is evenly moistened by the wet mixture. This will be the base of your macaroons’ structure, so mix until you have a uniform consistency.

Adjust Consistency: If the mixture looks too dry and isn’t holding together well, add a tablespoon of water or coconut milk at a time, folding gently after each addition until the desired consistency is achieved. You’re looking for a mixture that can hold its shape, not too wet and not overly dry.

Shape Macaroons: With clean hands or an ice cream scoop, shape the mixture into small, rounded mounds. If you’re using your hands, lightly wet them to prevent sticking. An ice cream scoop can help ensure your macaroons are uniform in size for even baking.

Bake to Perfection: Arrange the macaroons on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart as they will spread a little. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, watching closely towards the end. You’re aiming for the macaroons to turn a light golden color around the edges, indicating they’re baked through and will have a delightful texture contrast between the crispy exterior and the soft interior.

Cool: Once baked to perfection, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the macaroons cool on the pan for a couple of minutes. This allows them to firm up a bit and makes transferring them to a cooling rack easier. After a few minutes, use a spatula to transfer them to a cooling rack, where they will continue to cool and set.

Tips For Making The Perfect Keto Coconut Macaroons

  • Don’t use sweetened coconut flakes; they aren’t low-carb or keto and will be far too sweet.
  • You can use a medium ice cream scoop to make the dough for 12 large cookies. If you want to make them smaller, use a smaller ice cream scoop, but you need to know that the baking time will be reduced.
  • Don’t overbake these keto coconut macaroons because otherwise, they will become dry and crumbly.

Storing Ideas

  • Freezer: Another great thing about these cookies is that they can also be stored in the freezer for one month.
