Last week I was contacted by my friends over at Detour Bars and asked to participate in a little bake off & giveaway action. I’m never one to turn down a challenge so I happily accepted! Only requirements were to use both ABS Pancakes (low carb/high protein) and the new Detour “Simple” bars in new recipes and then share them with my readers. Sounds simple enough right? This girl could handle that!!!
Pancakes would have been the obvious choice, but I’m not an obvious kinda girl (especially when it comes to baking). As it turned out, that day I also had a HUGE craving for some chocolate chip cookies! I wasn’t sure if ABS Pancakes would work in this form, but alas… they did! They turned out bigger than I anticipated, but when dealing with cookies, they can NEVER be too big right? How perfect do they look?
You might be thinking to yourself “Those look great, but where are the Detour Bars? Are those the chunks I see in the cookies?” No friends… those are ACTUAL chocolate chips that are already IN the ABS Pancake mix! Do you see how big they are??? I was pretty shocked myself actually!
So no, no Detour Bars in the cookie batter. Again, that would have been far too obvious. I decided to take my chocolate chip cookie to a whole new level and STUFFED them with the a “Chocolate Chip Caramel” Detour Bar!!!!
Get ready for it…
How’s that for a chocolate chip cookie? Not only do these taste as good as they look, they are SO easy to make, AND the macros/nutritional profile on them are AMAZING. Get a load of this… no really… I had to double check things when I was getting the information on them!
CALORIES: 93 (fat- 2.3 grams, carbs- 8 grams/fiber- 3.2 grams, protein- 11 grams) per cookie!!!!!
I don’t think I have ever made or had a chocolate chip cookie with those kinds of stats, let alone a STUFFED one! I think this may work it’s way into my regular dessert rotation. I know I will ALWAYS have room in my macros for at least 1-3 of them!
