These turned out absolutely fabulous and are really ADDICTIVE! The egg white coating creates a very crispy outer shell making this treat crunchy, sweet and salty – a delicious combination for a satisfying snack to enjoy with your afternoon tea. I love that these are full of healthy fats and protein too.
