1/4tspunsweetened cocoa powderplus extra to garnish
1cupsweetenersuch as agave or honey
Preheat your oven to 120C. Position two racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Whilst waiting for the oven to heat up, prepare two large baking sheets and line them with baking paper.
Using a large mixing bowl beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, coconut, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until the ingredients are blended together.
Gradually add in the sweetener whilst beating the mix, 2 tablespoons at a time. Beat until you can see stiff, shiny peaks forming. The whole process will take about 6 - 8 minutes.
Sift the cocoa over the mixture and carefully fold it together with a rubber spatula until everything is combined.
Put the meringue mix into a pastry bag with a ½ inch tip. Pipe the mix onto the baking sheets in 2-inch circles. Make sure you leave some space in between the meringue to allow it to expand (about 1-inch apart).
Put the trays in the oven and bake for 50 minutes.
After 50 minutes, turn off the oven and let the meringue stand in the oven for about 1 ½ hours. Make sure you keep the oven door closed while doing this.
Sprinkle cooled meringues with some more cocoa powder.
Store in an airtight container.
