What makes a late night snack? There’s a reason no one gets up and dips carrot sticks into hummus at midnight – OK so there probably are people that do. If I’m actually honest, I don’t ever snack at midnight. The worst I do suffer from is the occasional 7 pm sweet craving, which leaves me wanting biscuits and tea. While I don’t have the tea (caffeine will waken me) I might have a biscuit or five. But what makes a good biscuit? An uber high fat and sugar content. And that then leads to me feeling guilty and not fully enjoying what is an enjoyable feed!
So here are some insanely sweet, but also low fat biscuits! I used a combination of spelt flour and protein powder to make them slightly healthier as well. Molasses adds a caramel flavour and an added hit of vitamins. Oh, and please add the walnuts, because that crunch with the soft biscuit is a match made in heaven. Or in the kitchen. And don’t forget, if you’re an Aussie vegan then OMG check out prana on for protein. I’m not a sponsor/paid etc, but I am fully addicted. I’m so poor but I do currently own four 3kg tubs of the stuff. After use, I turn the buckets into plant pots…
Quick, easy and so very sweet. I used the Salted Caramel protein flavour, but really you can use whatever you’ve got. Measurements are by cups, so don’t pack them down.
