Ingredients:

2 egg whites;

100g (3.5 oz.) ground almonds;

100g (3.5 oz.) coconut desiccated unsweetened;

1 tsp. vanilla extract;

1 tsp. almond extract;

1 tbsp. Amaretto;

1 pinch of salt;

Stevia or any other carb and calorie free sweetener to your taste.


How to Make Coconut Biscuits:

  • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/gas mark 2. Prepare a large baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. 
  • Lightly beat the eggs with pinch of salt.
  • Mix together the ground almonds and coconut, then add egg, vanilla and almond extract, Amaretto and the sweetener of your choice. You need to taste if it is sweet enough. If you are using pure stevia - 1/2 tsp might be enough, but taste it if it is right for you. If you are using other types of stevia, remember that their strength might be different, so always taste to make sure it is sweet enough.

  • Use a teaspoon to place the biscuit mixture on the baking tray covered with non-stick baking paper. You need approximately 1.5 tsp. of the biscuit mixture per one biscuit. You can shape them with you fingers making them a bit pointy at the top if you wish, as you can see on the pictures.
  • Bake for 20 min until golden in color. Take the tray from the oven and leave the biscuits to cool down there.
