Bio Pro Chocolate Caramel Stars – Raw vegan Protein Cookies


I am not supposed to be here posting a recipe for you guys and my online cookbook but I am. I really like it here in the morning chatting away like a crazy women to who know's. I mean, I may just be chatting away to myself some days with the crazy creations I come up with and I'm brave enough to post. I never post anything that I don't like! (don't ask my why I said that... derr, I'm crazy but not that bad!) but it seems that there are a lot of  people out there that are looking for healthy alternatives and if my little recipes help just one person then my day has been made!



So, here I am sharing another addition from the crazy collection of healthy sweet treats I have in my fridge for this house full of weight training, hard working boys that are my precious family. My precious daughter lives 100km away so she gets treats when she visits :-)


I received some samples from Protein Supplies Australia on Monday and included in the package was their Bio Pure Sprouted and Fermented Brown Rice Protein. In this recipes I've used the natural flavour but they do a range of really interesting and delicious sounding one as well. Next I will try the  Chocolate Hazelnut. They also do a Vanilla Cinnamon. I've copied the stats from their page below which explains why I'm really impressed with this product. For a dairy free and easily digested protein with enhanced nutrition the flavour and texture is great.
