November is here!!
People becomes obsessed with pumpkin everything this time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin stuff, but give me caramel apple over pumpkin anytime!
Take it one step further with these Salted Caramel Apple Cookies.
The base recipe is another take on my favorite #KimHoeltjeCookies
These cookies may sound like an indulgent treat, but they are 100% guilt free!!
Hardly any sugar, no flour, gluten free, and full of “good for you” ingredients.
Secret ingredient once again is beans!
Definitely my favorite ingredient to bake with.
I use Myprotein Salted Caramel Impact Whey to keep with the theme, but you can also use Vanilla, Cinnamon, or some other crazy flavor!
Take these cookies to the next level with some caramel frosting and a dash of sea salt.
The salt is key!!
Sweet and salty for the win!
It really is the perfect Fall Cookie.
You can also skip the salt and just make cookie sandwiches!
Same wonderful (from a jar…bought it at the store) caramel frosting.
Feel free to whip up your own filling, but I got a little lazy at this point…
Eat them plain, make them sea salty, or try as cookie sandwiches!
