Guilt free treats

Ever fancied tucking into your favourite cakes and treats without all the calories? I love The Skinny Bakery. The company sells miniature bites of your favourite treats, with *less sugar, fat and calories then your usual supermarket confectionaries.

Some of the treats they sell are; Carrot Cake Pearls, Mini Flapjacks, Double Choc Meringue Cookies, Sweet Pototoe Brownies, Mini Gingerbread Man, Salted Caramel Cookies and many more. 

I couldn't resist buying these. Mini Salted Caramel Cookies. 44 calories per cookie, 1g fat, 4g protein. The entire pack (50g) contains 37g Carbs, 20g of which are Sugar. They are truly delicious! The Cookies have a soft, chewy consistency- and the salty caramel just melts in your mouth.

*As delicious as they are, I wouldn't buy them everyday as the sugar content is still quite high. Low calories doesn't necessarily mean it's an healthy alternative- a food item advertised as low fat, may still contain a high amount of sugar and a food item advertised as low in sugar or zero calories may still contain a high amount of fat, addictives, sweeteners and preservatives. It is always important to follow a healthy balanced diet- and check labels for the nutrition information. Check out this website for more information on how to understand food labels.
