I made these today hoping to serve them at a dinner party tonight. They did not work for me. Taste great, but they crumble apart when I pick one up.  I am trying to figure out what I did wrong.  I live in a dry climate and my coconut was very dry to start with.  Do you have any ideas how to add some moisture into the coconut flakes? This is a problem I have with several unsweetened coconut recipe.  Maybe steam it for a few minutes?  The maroon needed more, hum.... how would you say, stretchy, sticky stuff in it so it would hold together.  Any ideas? Butter or oil?

Hi Sher, I'm afraid that is the case - the coconut was too dry (not enough fat). I've seen that with some products - I wish they were all the same! The coconut I use has slightly larger flakes (not too fine). If you find it to be too dry before baking, try adding a little more coconut oil. Or you could add one more egg white. Or you could use coconut flakes (also known as coconut chips) as they are a little more fatty bu you will need to blend them in a food processor to make smaller flakes/shredded coconut. I hope this helps!

Can you please tell me if monk fruit sweetener is the same as powdered Erythritol or Swerve?
Someone told me to buy Lakanto classic monkfruit sweetener, which i did, but almost all recipes call for erythritol or swerve....ugh!

Hi Annette, Monk fruit sweetener is made with a blend of monk fruit and Erythritol. It's a great low-carb option and you can use it just like Swerve or Erythritol. The only difference is that pure Erythritol is a little less sweet than the other two options.

I love you're blog, a lot of people will love it...
