Low-carb amaretti biscuits
Low-carb version of classic Italian biscuits, made with ground almonds and egg whites
Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 20 min | Total time: 30 min
Yield: 20 small biscuits
1.5 cups (150g / 5oz) of ground almonds
3 tbsp Truvia or similar granulated sweetener
2 egg whites
1 tsp almond extract (or 1 tbsp Amaretto Disaronno liqueur)
Preheat oven to 170C/325F/Gas Mark 3
Whisk egg whites to stiff peaks
Mix almond flour and Truvia together
Add almond flour / Truvia mix into the eggs (I do it using a tablespoon, one by one)
Add almond extract and mix well
Line a baking tray with greased baking paper
Spoon out the mixture onto the tray and shape small round biscuits
Alternatively, you can roll little balls with your hands, flatten them and place on the baking tray
Leave a bit of space between the biscuits, as they will expand slightly
Bake for 15-20 minutes until slightly golden
Ideally, cool completely before eating, as the texture gets more authentic (crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside)
Serving size: 1 biscuit (assuming 20 small biscuits are made from the amounts listed above)
