Special dessert treat for diabetic ...

Hi all, am wanting to make my sweetheart something yummy for dessert tomorrow night. When we have dessert it is usually fresh fruit salad or WW jelly or WW mousse. Tis a special occasion so I'd like to make something a bit different.
Any ideas? ? Thanks in advance

Jenny's Version of Garth's Macaroons
Garth Lamson has removed his delicious macaroon recipe from his web site but has given me permission to post my revision of it. This is a truly low carb, low cal cookie that satisfies my need for a little after meal treat.

1 1/3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut. (I buy mine from Whole Foods bulk section. )
1 tablespoon vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Splenda powder
1 3/4 tablespoon DaVinci Amaretto sugar free syrup (you can use other flavors if you don't have this one)
3/4 teaspoon Almond extract
2 medium egg whites

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix ingredients together in a bowl in order given.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. These do not spread out so you can put them close together. I usually make 24 from this recipe.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Edges of cookies should be light brown. Remove from cookie sheet immediately.
