ISO Sugar Free Meringue Cookie Recipe

My doctor put me on a pretty strict diet - no sugar, gluten, or dairy - and I need to start making some healthy treats so I don't feel deprived!

Eggs are fine on this diet, so I'd like to try making some tasty desserts with meringue.

Does anyone have a good recipe for meringue cookies made with a sugar substitute other than Splenda? I just made some meringue and added powdered stevia, but the batter didn't taste all that great.

Looking forward to suggestions!

I saw a recipe like that lately but it had either stevia or Splenda in it. What was wrong with yours; why didn't it turn out ?

They came out very chewy and not very sweet. I'd love to find a recipe that uses agave nectar, which is fine on my diet and better tasting than stevia.

Have you Googled the Agave? Most producers of food items have a kitchen where they develop recipes using their product.
