PALEO MATCHA MERINGUES // SWEET LAUREL

Paleo Matcha Meringues

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I couldn’t help but get festive with these delicious green delights! They are super easy to prep. Note that some matcha powders are more potent then others, so you may need to add more matcha to your recipe to get the color you’re looking for.  Be sure to enjoy these with my Mint Chip Shamrock Shake, it’s personally favorite way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day!!

Preheat oven to 200 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk all the ingredients together over the heat of a double boiler for about 3-5 minutes, and measures 140 degrees.

Remove from heat, then beat egg white mixture in stand mixer until stiff peaks form.
