Instructions on how to make Keto Mocha-Espresso Macarons

Macarons: 

  • Put the almond powder, powdered sugar substitute, and espresso powder in the stand mixer.
  • Beat 6 egg whites in one bowl with a pinch of salt.
  • Beat the lone egg white in a separate bowl.
  • When the whites are stiff, add in a cup of granulated xylitol at a time.
  • Mix well.
  • When that’s all mixed, fold in the almond powder mixture, a quarter at a time.
  • Mix together.
  • When everything is mixed together, add the one egg white that has been beaten. It will liquify the batter just enough.
  • Line 3-4 baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Pipe small circles onto each sheet.
  • Bang the sheets on the table so the macarons flatten.
  • Bake each sheet 11-15 minutes.
  • Pour a tiny bit of water under the parchment paper to steam the macarons so they lift off easily.

Additional filling 

  • Melt the butter in a small pan and let it cook until golden brown. This will give the caramel a deeper flavor.
  • Pour in heavy cream and stir until combined.
  • Lower the heat and simmer for a minute.
  • Add in sweetener.
  • Let that dissolve for a minute.
  • Add a pinch of salt.
  • Let it cook until you see it getting thicker and stickier.
  • Pour the caramel into a container, preferably glass, and continue to stir while it cools.
  • Put a large teaspoon of caramel filling on the bottom of a macaron, and close the “sandwich” with another macaron bottom.
  • Put in the fridge for a while.
  • Serve and enjoy.
