Keto Macaron Recipes

Welcome to #BrunchWeek 2020 hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. We have gotten 22 bloggers together to share our favorite brunch recipes.

We have all kinds of recipes from french toast to danishes and cocktails and mocktails and tons of desserts. Today, I am super excited to share with you these lemon macarons.

They were not easy to crack and that is saying a lot from someone who makes macarons regularly. My husband has been making awesome macarons for the past few years and we worked extra hard putting these Keto cookies together for you.

Macarons have something called feet that signify a good looking and tasting macaron. The ingredients in macarons are made specifically to help the macarons rise to create these feet.

Everything in making a macaron recipe is done to make get air into the bater. After many failed attempts and tons of FAKE photos of perfect Keto Macarons online, we realized that macarons cannot have feet with sugar substitutes.

Low Carb Macarons

The Keto French macaron recipe here tastes great and is the best low carb keto macaron we have tried. We tried all the all the other recipe from other blogs in attempts to gleam an understanding of the methods. We tried them all and OMG the tastes that I had endure were atrocious!

There was one where my mouth was so cold from the amount of stevia they instructed us to put in. I feel ill just thinking about it.

The sugar free macarons that we made here are not overly sweet and are amazingly delicious. You will fall in love with them as I did.

How to Make Keto Macarons?

Line a few trays with parchment paper. Use the back of a piping tip to draw 1 inch circles with about 1 inch space in between each circle.

Start by placing the almond flour in a food processor. *

NOTE: * Although your almond flour might say that it is finely ground, it still needs further processing. This helps avoid lumpy macarons.

Almond Flour

Using a sifter, tip the almond flour from the food processor out and gradually sift the almond flour into a bowl. Once you are done, set the dry ingredients aside.

Carefully crack two eggs into a bowl without puncturing the yolk. Using clean hands, scoop out the yolk one by one and hold it above the bowl so that all of the egg white slides off.

Add a half teaspoon of salt to the egg whites and begin to whip.

Beat the egg whites until they get fluffy and add the stevia drops and vanilla extract. Continue to whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. **

Egg Whites

NOTE: ** Sometimes you will get peaks that appear stiff, but if they tip over at all, they are not stiff enough. Properly whipped, the egg whites, now a meringue, will not come out of a bowl even if you tip it upside down.

Grab a spatula and begin adding the almond flour to the meringue a quarter at a time.

When adding it, make sure to gently fold the merginue and dry mix together by scooping from the bottom of the bowl upwards and folding it over.

Continue this until all is incorporated. Don’t overwork the mixture, you just want a good folded in mixture.

Flip the pencil side of the parchment paper down.

Then, use a little dot of the batter on the underside of the four corners of parchment paper. This helps keep the paper in place while you are piping.

Fill a piping bag with a half inch tip and begin piping small circles of batter onto the parchment paper where you made the circles.

Pick up each tray and drop them onto the counter to knock any loose air out from under the macarons.

When all the batter has been piped, let it sit on the counter for at least 30 minutes. ***

NOTE: *** This is an important step! It causes a film to form over top of the macaron, and will help it retain its shape while it is baking.

While waiting, preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Place the first tray in and bake for 15 minutes. ****

NOTE: **** Do not be tempted to open the over door while it is baking, because this can result in an uneven bake.

Take the macarons out. If they are not perfectly dried out, then you can pop them back into the over for a few more minutes.

Wait until the macarons are cooled to remove them from the parchment paper.

You will be able to tell when they are ready because they will come off the parchment without sticking at all.

Let them cool completely before adding any filling. You can use any number of fillings, including piping a layer of Keto butter cream.

How to Make Keto Buttercream?

Set the cream cheese and butter out of the fridge so that it softens for about 20 minutes so that they are at room temperature.

Add the cream cheese and butter to the stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Cream together the cream cheese and butter until they are mixed and fluffy.

You will need to scrape down the sides with a spatula.

Then, add the vanilla extract and the monk fruit sweetener.

Mix until combined.

Add the buttercream to the piping bag.

Pipe the buttercream to one side of the cookie. Then, sandwich the cookies together.
