I have a friend and fellow weight watcher member at my local meeting who loves salty snacks and asked if I could create something for her. I love making up no-bake cookies as there is no fuss and they come together pretty easy. These sweet & salty no-bake cookies are the perfect combination for those who love salty snacks but still want that sweet taste to it. They are very easy to prepare and just 68 calories, 1-2PP if following WW.
- Crushed pretzels
- Mini chocolate chips
- Peanut butter
- Caramel sauce
- Vanilla extract
I buy the no sugar added Smuckers caramel syrup, if you can't find this brand any caramel syrup will work in this recipe.
I find adding a little water to your hands while you are rolling the cookies into balls will help keeo the mixture from sticking to your hands.
The cookies will store well in the fridge for up to 4 days.
I use Quaker oats but quick oats will work just as well. You can use any kind of nut butter in these, I prefer them with peanut butter but almond butter will also be delicious.
The great thing about no-bake cookies is you can play around with the ingredients, you can add in some dried fruit, any kind of chopped nuts, and any kind of chocolate chips, I have made these with white chocolate chips before and they were so good.
