Trans-fat Free, Very low in sodium, Low Sodium


125 grams strawberries
hulled and halved
6 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
or paste
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
1 ¼ cups almond meal
finely ground almond
½ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup butter, unsalted
150 grams
powdered sugar
for dusting, optional


Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃) degrees.

Coat a 12-cup friand pan or muffin tin with cooking spray or grease with butter.

Put strawberries on a large plate and use a potato masher to crush.

Add the egg whites and vanilla extract in a large bowl and whisk until just frothy and smooth.

Sift the icing sugar, almond meal and flour over the egg whites and vanilla mixture with a sieve.

Mix in the melted butter and crushed strawberries with a wooden spoon until well blended..

Divide the mixture among prepared friand cups or muffin cups.

Bake for about 25 minutes, until friands are golden and a wooden stick inserted into the centres comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack for a few minutes.

Then remove from the pan and transfer onto the wire rack, and cool completely.

Just before serving, dust with powered sugar if desired.
