These healthy mini-meringues are made with no added sugar & are gluten free. They have a beautiful nutty almond & date base, filled with a cherry & chia jam & topped with a sugarfree cloud of fluffy meringue. The base is made with almond, Brazil nuts, hemp seed, dates & vanilla all whizzed together.
The cherry filling is made with fresh cherries, @chiabiaseed chia and cinnamon cooked down in to a jam. The meringue was whipped up using @drcoys GM free & organic stevia in place of sugar.
Easy enough to make & worth every second of the process because they taste so good & are a wonderful sugarfree version of the loved meringue.
