Get tropical with this delicious recipe from CocoPro ambassador Amie Dawson – another way to enjoy CocoPro Pineapple! This time we are baking with CocoPro, adding a tasty protein punch. Not only is CocoPro high in protein, it also contains your recommended daily intake of vitamin C! These flavoursome little squares also contain fresh pineapple and blueberries, giving them a seriously fruity flavour. But there has to be something slightly naughty in there..so Amie has added white chocolate to her recipe – it’s all about balance.
Give this one a go this weekend or treat yourself to a mid-week baking session!
