You may not think there is a healthy way to eat salted caramel... but there is.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (80g) icing sugar

  • ¼ cup (30g) almond meal

  • 1 tbs Dutch cocoa powder

  • 1 egg white, at room temperature

  • 1 tbs caster sugar

  • Salted caramel filling

  • 25g Weight Watchers Canola Spread

  • 1½ tbs icing sugar, sifted

  • 3 tsp caramel topping

  • Pinch of sea salt flakes

Method

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 150°C. Line 1 large baking tray with baking paper.

  • 2.

    Process the icing sugar, almond meal and cocoa powder in a food processor for 2 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve into a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat the egg white in a medium bowl until soft peaks form. Beat in the caster sugar until thick and glossy. Fold the egg white mixture through the almond mixture until combined.

  • 3.

    Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm-plain nozzle. Pipe 16 x 3cmwide discs, 3cm apart, onto the prepared tray.

  • 4.

    Set the macaron shells aside for 20 minutes or until a skin forms on top. Bake the shells for 20 minutes or until just crisp. Set aside to cool.

  • 5.

    Meanwhile, to make salted caramel filling, whisk the canola spread and icing sugar in a small bowl until pale. Whisk in the caramel topping and salt until combined.

  • 6.

    Using a small palette knife or the back of a spoon, spread the filling onto the bases of half of the macaron shells. Top with the remaining shells and sandwich together. Place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight to soften slightly. Bring the macarons to room temperature before serving.
