Low Carb Coconut Kiss Meringues

One of my favorite cookies growing up were these incredible meringues with coconut and pecans.  I lost the recipe for many years, but recently discovered it and converted it to remove the sugar.  It came out really well!  They were crisp and airy.  Tasted just like I remembered.  I hope you will love it too!   

(I need to make a new batch that is not so browned.  I forgot that I left them in the oven to crisp overnight.  I turned the oven on to bake a morning casserole and smelled cookies!  So, until I make a new batch… these are the pictures that I have.  Too… i purposely kinda slung the meringues down on the parchment paper to see how they would turn out instead of making neat little uniform blobs.  They are fine any way you do it. It all tastes the same!)
