Recently, I picked up a bag of Monk Fruit at Costco. Of course, it was on sample, and I had never tried it before. Generally, I’ve stayed away from sugar substitutes for baking, because I didn’t trust that my treats would turn out. However, the taste of this sugar was great, so I bought the bag, like I do with most Costco samples.

Monk fruit (here on Amazon) is Erythritol combined with monk fruit extract. How much of the monk fruit they use, I really don’t know. But, beyond adding it to some YUMMY lemon water, this Macaroon is my first cookie with it.

I made these coconut macaroons a few times to get it just right. What I learned, is they just need to cook slow at a low heat in order for the inside to cook before the outside.

Also, I’ve made them with and without chocolate. Without chocolate, the calories come down by about 10 calories, but with the chocolate, it is so worth the extra.

Also, you can try these coconut macaroons with unsweetened coconut, and that would bring the calories AND the carbs down, but I really liked the real thing.
