They're light and fluffy, but they won't be as chewy as the real deal as there's no sugar. The best part? You can roast them!
You can use a few alternative sweeteners: Erythritol, Swerve, Allulose, Tagatose and Xylitol. These keto marshmallows are easy to whip up and are a joy to consume. Think low carb S'mores while watching a scary movie with the family!
