These salted caramel bytes are healthy, vegan, gluten-free and free of refined sugars and they make the best treat ever! Sweet and creamy with a good amount of protein, they seem too good too be true…

I used Pulled oats as a protein source as this the newest and the hottest product on the UK market when it comes to Protein in my opinion. The closest alternative would be soy curls I suppose. But I love Pulled oats because they work wonderfully in both sweet and savoury recipes and they are soy-free while providing a whopping 30 grams of protein per 100 grams!

These little bites are perfectly sweet, creamy with a good amount of protein and because of this they are super satisfying as well! What else can you possibly ask? And the recipe is super simple as well with only 3 main ingredients so I hope that you can give them a try!
