On a Sunday morning it’s perfectly legal to enjoy a croissant or two. Since we’re craving for something sweet, but still want to keep it healthy, we’re always looking for tasty alternatives. These Carb Killa croissants are definitely a winner! Crispy on the outside, softly melted and gooey on the inside. And since they’re mini croissants, you can eat lots of them without feeling guilty!
- 1 ready rolled Puff Pastry Sheet
- 1,5 Carb Killa Peanut Nutter protein bar
- 2 egg yolks
These are going to make you so popular among friends and family!
First things first, preheat your oven at 220° Celsius. In the meanwhile, take your ready rolled puff pastry sheet, and cut the pastry into little triangles. I managed to get 24 triangles out of my puff pastry sheet. (Or make them a bit bigger. Do what feels good!)
Now that our puff pastry triangles are ready, cut your Carb Killa protein bars (choose any flavour you like!) into small pieces. In the meanwhile, whisk 2 egg yolks in a bowl, and add a little water so it mixes better.
Now let’s get these croissants assembled! Put a couple of Carb Killa pieces on the long side of your triangle. Roll up the puff pastry triangle, from the long side to the top. Repeat until all your triangles are finished. Put the croissants onto a baking sheet and start dipping the top with a bit of your egg yolk mixture. (This is not for taste, but for that crispy, glossy golden-brown top of your croissant!)
Bake these beauties for 15 to 20 minutes in the oven at 200° Celsius.
You can eat these warm or cold, but I promise, they won’t last long!
