No Tricks, Just Treats!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
I've spent the last few days picking pumpkins, baking spooky treats, taking my baby niece to her first Halloween party (omg she looked so cute!) and at Fright Night Thorpe Park. So basically, I'M IN FULL HALLOWEEN SWING.. and I lavvvv it! Ngl, I swear I'm getting more obsessed as I'm getting older.. not sure that's the way it's mean to work (lol) but hey!
So, I dunno about you lot but for me Halloween is all about being home in front of a cosy fire, scary film on the TV and with plenty of snacks in reach. And, by 'scary', I mean Hocus Pocus cos it's the best film evaaa. Well this year I thought why not make some snacks that taste good AND help me hit my macros - Hello protein biscuits! So these babies are high in protein, low in sugar and are absolutely marvelous dipped in  melted dark choc or a peanut butter drizzle (recipe of this I'll pop in below!) - the choice is yours..

I must confess.. I didn't plan on decorating them with icing (hi sugar) but they really didn't have the full Halloween'y effect without it. My advice? Leave the icing and dunk into the peanut butter drizzle.. you won't be disappointed!
So together the entire mixture is:
712 calories
41g protein
17g sugar
For my Halloween biscuits this made 12 - but, as you can see, the shapes vary in size quite a bit. So I'd imagine it would make around 6 'uniform biscuits' *picturing Paul Hollywood rn and I really don't mind it one bit..

BISCUIT INGREDIENTS:
- 2 scoops of Protein (I used Free Soul Chocolate Vegan)
- 1 egg
- 1tbsp honey
- 4tbsp Peanut Butter (I use Pip & Nut)
- Pinch of sea salt
-1tbsp Coconut Oil (I use Vitacoco)
-50g Buckwheat Flour
-0.5 tsp Baking Powder

METHOD:
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
2. Place all ingredients into a food processor and mix until they form a dough-like mixture
3. Grease a baking tray with coconut oil
4. Using your hands, take some of the mixture and roll into a small ball. Place on tray and press into a biscuit shape. (I used cookie-cutters here to create my desired Halloween-shapes)
5. Once all the mixture has been used, place tray into pre-heated oven.
6. Bake for 12-15minutes
7. Take them out and let them cool (the hardest part!)

PEANUT BUTTER DRIZZLE INGREDIENTS:
- 1.5tbsp Peanut Butter
- 1.5tbsp Coconut Oil
-1tbsp Honey

METHOD:
1. Melt the coconut oil in a heated pan
2. Stir in the peanut butter and honey until a smooth drizzle is formed
Please let me know if you do give these a go..I always love seeing you guys trying my recipes :)

HAVE A SPOOKTACULAR (hehe) HALLOWEEN!
