Copycat Trader Joe’s Caramel Coffee Cashews

Posted on

I stumbled upon these at TJ’s the other day and was eager to give them a try, but they were just okay! I felt like they lacked something special, and I thought, “I CAN MAKE THESE BETTER!” So, I did. My version is free from refined sugar, gluten, and packs a protein punch thanks to the collagen. Plus, once they’re out of the oven and cooled down, they’re not sticky at all, making them the perfect snack to carry in your purse.

Here’s how you can make them:

  • 1 tablespoon collagen peptides


  • Preheat your oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients mentioned above.
