Low Carb Shortpuffs

Low Carb Shortpuffs

Spring is here at last and I’m looking forward to lots of warm weather.  Warm weather reminds me of fruity desserts, so I dreamed up this yummy shortcake-inspired dessert.  I don’t eat fruit, but fruit-flavored sugar-free syrup scratches that itch.

Low Carb Shortpuffs

4 large egg whites
2 teaspoons Fiberfit Liquid
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon powdered erythritol
1 teaspoon inulin
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/16 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly spray or oil a large cookie sheet.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat egg whites, Fiberfit, and vanilla until stiff.  Set aside.

Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Gradually sprinkle into egg white mixture, gently folding in while mixing well.

Drop by 8 very large spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  Make sure the puffs aren’t touching each other.

Bake for 6 – 8 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and carefully loosen puffs with a spatula.  Let cool on cookie sheet.  Puffs will shrink a little while cooling.

The entire recipe contains about 2 net carbs.  Number of servings depends on how large you want them.

I like to use 2 Shortpuffs for a double-decker dessert drizzled with Monin O’Free blackberry syrup or sugar-free chocolate syrup with Low Carb Whipped Cream between the puffs and on top.

They are also great drizzled with Perfect Low Carb Fudge Sauce or No Carb Dessert Topping/Filling with Low Carb Whipped Cream.
