After developing my recipe for Keto Coconut Rough Ice Cream, I had a lot of egg whites left over.. like 10. That’s a lot of egg whites, especially for someone who isn’t a fan of meringue and when I’ve eaten my Keto Coconut Macaroons to death. So what’s a girl to do? Create a new recipe of course! Enter Keto Raspberry Tarts which use 5 egg whites in the best way possible, baked goods!
These tarts started out as a friand recipe – one of my favourite baked goods. The density of the almond flour and lightness of egg whites creates this fluffy, moist vanilla flavoured cake. Because I don’t have a friand pan, they become Keto Raspberry Tarts instead.
These are quick to whip up but look adorable.
Don’t tell your friends how easy they were though, that’s our little secret.
They also worked really well as muffins, fill the cups to 3/4 capacity and bake for around 20 – 22 minutes and you are set.
Try serving with my no churn, no sugar Keto Vanilla Ice Cream for a delectable recipe – which perfectly uses the 5 egg yolks you’ll have left over!
