    These are delicious! Though, next time I’m going to use an electric mixer so the egg whites won’t be so visible. Lol

        You’re welcome. And yeah, I’ve made these again last night. I was sure to use my stand mixer this time and they came out looking better this time. They taste so good! You’d never guess they’re keto!
