These are the perfect bite-sized keto treats for Valentine's Day. Simply make them in advance and enjoy on that special day with your loved one! To give the macaroons an extra flavour boost, I added some cinnamon and cayenne pepper and dipped them in extra dark chocolate. You can find more Valentine's keto treats here.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

LOVED LOVED LOVED these and OMG they were so easy to make!  I've always been a bit intimidated about melting chocolate but it was a snap. Thanks for this delicious recipe!
I'm wondering if there is a way to add protein powder to the recipe in order to increase the protein a bit. Any ideas?
Here's a picture of my version.  I added a little coconut to the top. BTW, I loved the hint of cayenne. So yummy!

Thank you for your kind words Ann! Yes, you could use 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder instead of 1/4 cup almond flour but that's just a guess 😊 I think your photo may be private - the link doesn't seem to be working?

LOL. I made these again yesterday. I should've checked your blog first. Oh well. I'll try the protein powder on the next batch. Man these are yummy!
As with the carrot cheesecake muffins, I posted the photo to Facebook. So, here's a link to the macaroon image, which I saved to Box,  It didn't turn out as nicely as the muffin photo, but again, feel free to use it if you like it.

Thank you Ann, they look fab!! 😊

Hi! What's the amount of salt 1/4 tsp?

Yes, thanks for spotting a typo! 😊

Mine came out terrible, bitter, dry & crumbly.  I followed the recipe exactly. I don't know what went wrong. A waste of expensive ingredient.

Could it be the coconut or other dry ingredients? I recommend you always weigh dry ingredients. Unfortunately, weights vary in different brands. If the taste was bitter, then it may be the sweetener - did you use stevia? Erythritol is a better option and if they're not sweet enough, add some more.

Hello Martina, just made these and they taste terrific but are not the chewy macaroon that I expected. Would beating the egg whites help achieve a more chewy macaroon or adding more oil. I used the recipe as you wrote it and baked 12 minutes. We do live at 5000 feet. Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you! I think that adding some coconut butter or any nut butter would make them more chewy. I would just skip the almond flour (maybe even use some coconut butter instead of the shredded coconut). I'd probably also decrease the baking time to 8-10 minutes (it's just a guess for high-altitude baking). I hope this helps!

Look great, these could also work well as fat bombs. I'm going to give them a try over the weekend

Hope you like them! 😊

They look fantastic!
Would the recipe work if almond flour replaced with coconut one?
The almond flour is so expensive here O_O

Yes I think it will! I'd just add some water. Coconut flour is very absorbent do I'd add 1/4-1/2 cup water.

thanks, I was going to ask this as well; almond flour is 3-4 times the price of coconut flour in the UK.
I'm assuming ground almonds wouldn't work either

Hi Jack, I've been using this one: I use this product to avoid pesticides found in non-organic almonds.
It is pricey and it's basically ground almonds (it's not a "defatted"product), it's just finely ground so I'm sure that home-ground almonds will work too.

Thank you, will report if make some 😊
