Salted Caramel and Pecan Cookies 1
It would be hard to believe the delicious treats are good for you but thanks for Funch Foods who have a huge range of delicious high protein powder ball mixes these are! Funch have been good enough to send me their newest product; the Salted Caramel protein ball powder mix. Who doesn’t Love salted caramel!? And some of the best combination to go with it? Chocolate, nuts, pecans, peanut butter, coffee… so I chose pecans as I love them too. I didn’t want to just made the ‘as per instructions’ mix though I wanted to get creative! But i certainly reserved some of the mix to use as per the directions to really try it out.
The new Salted caramel mix however, works a treat int he cookies! Replacing the bulk of flour that would be used its a healthy alternative and make the additions to it a breeze!
