The sweetness from the dates, coupled with our delicious Salted Caramel Soy Protein Isolate, is a winning combo – providing an unbeatable taste and impressive nutritionals. Each cookie delivers 5g of protein and comes in at just 100 calories, which is ideal if you’re looking to indulge while supporting your fitness progress too, as protein is key to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass1. What’s more, dates might be small, but they naturally contain large amounts of:

  • Dietary fibre which is key to digestive health
  • Carbohydrates for a boost of energy
  • Important minerals, including: iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese and vitamin B6

Make a batch of these stuffed date cookies ahead of time to prevent an afternoon slump or to enjoy as fuel pre or post-workout!
