I'm going to try this one. Unsweetened coconut is suprisingly low in carbs (high fiber) and is a nice source of fat.

1-1/3 cups unsweetened Coconut
1/2 cup chopped Slivered Almonds
1/3 cup splenda
2 Tbsp. almond or flaxseed flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 cup thawed sugar free COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1 pt. (2 cups) strawberries, sliced

PREHEAT oven to 325?F. Mix coconut, almonds, sugar, flour and salt in large bowl. Beat egg whites and almond extract lightly with fork. Add to coconut mixture; mix well.
TRACE 9-inch circle on greased foil-covered baking sheet. Spread coconut mixture evenly onto foil, staying within circle line on foil.
BAKE 15 to 20 min. or until lightly browned. Cool. Remove from foil. Cut into 8 wedges. Top evenly with the whipped topping and strawberries just before serving.
