Meringues can be the perfect solution for when you’re short on ingredients or time. They’re light, fluffy and can take on so many forms and flavors. Make a huge batch from just a few eggs and bring them with you to a family dinner to be the star of the show. This recipe will make enough for everyone to enjoy a few!
The main ingredient in this 1 Carb Chocolate Glazed Meringues recipe is egg whites – which can be a little finicky. Make sure you bring the egg whites to room temperature before you start whipping them into peaks. Keep in mind that store-bought egg whites in cartons won’t work well for this recipe. They’ve been pasteurized and aren’t fit for meringues.

Make sure to be gentle with the meringue batter throughout the entire process – you don’t want it to flatten during mixing or piping! When piping, press gently and make sure your piping tip is large enough to let out enough meringue batter without deflating it too much.
You can also choose any kind of chocolate you like for the glaze/drizzle. In this recipe, we used Lindt 90& Dark Chocolate and simply melted it down gently until it was pourable but not scalding hot, which may affect the cooked meringues.

Preheat the oven to 225°F. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. You may want to use an electric hand mixer for this.
Add a pinch of salt and the sweetener and beat until stiff, shiny white peaks form.
Add the shredded unsweetened coconut and vanilla extract. Fold this in gently.
Into a piping bag fitted with the tip of your choice, add the meringue batter gently.
Cover a baking sheet in parchment paper and pipe the meringues into 3 inch rounds.
Bake the meringues for 50-60 minutes. Once they’re baked, turn the oven off and leave the door ajar. Let the meringues sit in the hot oven for 15-20 minutes to cool gently. This will prevent them from cracking.
Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler and let it cool slightly for 10 minutes. Then pour it over the cooled meringues. You can drizzle the chocolate over or simply dip each meringues lightly in the melted chocolate for a crunchy top. Enjoy!
