ghost meringue

I saw these cute treats from Parenting.com.  Clara loved them.  She ate all of them up before I could even pack them for her school snack.  I think it was more because of the fun shape than the taste, but the taste was good too because of the fresh lemon juice.  The texture turned out to be more marshmallowy than crunchy meringue cookies.

Ingredinets

1 (35g) egg white

pinch (0.1g) cream of tartar

pinch (0.1g) salt

1t (4g) Truvia

1/4t (2g) fresh lemon juice (if you don’t have it, you can leave it out or add alcohol-free vanilla flavor)

12-14 freeze dried blueberries (or chocolate chips you are allowed to use)

Directions

*Read our Disclaimer FIRST before trying any recipes.*

Whip egg whites with a mixer for about 30 seconds.  Add cream of tartar and salt and whip until soft peaks form.  Add Truvia and lemon juice(or vanilla flavor) and whip until stiff peaks form.

Spoon in the mixture into a ziploc bag and cup out one corner.

On a parchment lined baking sheet, pipe out the meringue into ghost shapes.  insert chocolate chips as eyes.

bake at 200F for 1.5hrs.  let them cool in the oven for 2-3 hours.

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!
