One of my favourite pastries in the whole world - almond croissants!
Now i'm in offseason & have a few more calories in my life i've been enjoying the occasional almond croissant with my morning coffee. However, they're pretty hefty on the calorie front so I thought i'd create something a bit lighter that I can enjoy with my morning brew but still helps me get my fix.
Unlike regular almond croissants these balls can be enjoyed by those who can't have gluten too!
Servings: Makes 10 Balls
Macros per ball:
60kcal / 3.5g protein / 5g carbs / 2.5g fat
30g protein powder of choice (I used a honey almond flavoured one from "I am dedicated" for these but vanilla will do)
30g almond butter
30g oats (regular or gluten free)
20g flaked almonds
1/2 tsp almond extract
5 sprays Fry Light butter spray (to give the buttery croissant flavour)
1. Place all ingredients except for the flaked almonds into a blender & mix well (If mix looks a little dry add 1tsp water).
2. Scoop mix out using a spoon & roll into balls.
3. Roll each ball into the flaked almonds to coat.
4. Eat! :-)
