Keto Eat For Lifers, I really wanted to make this macaron wafer for you. Yesterday, I rushed out to get the sweeter I used before but was dreading it because of the bitter after taste. They I saw @zuganaturalsweetener Read the info “No Aftertaste!” I got it and it is true! OMG! It has Zero calories, fat, and carbs. It is gluten-free, diabetic friendly and all that good stuff.
So excited, I called the company and got a discount code for my Eat For Lifers. Visit www.zuga.ca and use the code EatForLife-15 to get 15% discount off your total order, and to get free shipping order must be over $20 after discount.
Keto Macaron with Cashew Butter Filling
Cookies / Snacks / Baking / Desserts / Keto / Diabetic
1 cup (110 grams) almond meal
1/2 cup (80 grams) Zuga natural sweeter (grinded to confectioners’ powder)
3 large egg whites
2 tablespoons (30 grams) Zuga natural sweetener
1/2 teaspoon (2 grams) vanilla extract
1/2 cup cashew butter
3 tablespoons Zuga
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon coconut oil liquify
Filling (trying new recipe, will follow-up with gram measurements):
Place the ground almond meal and the Zuga powder in a food processor and process for 15 seconds. Sift the mixture into a bowl. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place egg whites in a clean, grease-free bowl and beat on high speed until holding soft peaks, about 2 – 4 minutes. Gradually beat in the Zuga granules to make a firm, glossy meringue. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Using a spatula, fold the almond mixture into the egg mixture, one-thirds at a time. When all the dry ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, continue to cut, and fold the mixture until it forms a shiny batter with a thick, ribbonlike consistency.
Pour the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tip. Pipe 32 small circles onto the prepared baking sheets. Tap the baking sheets firmly onto a work surface to remove air bubbles, also use a toothpick if needed. let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325F (160C).
Bake for 5 minutes, rotate tray, and bake for another 5 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, they carefully remove the macarons from the parchment paper and let cool completely.
To make filling, add the ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Use to sandwich together pairs of macaron wafers. Serve and enjoy!
Will do a video in 2021 with different flavours.
