After a busy week, I think it is time for some food!
I ate like a champ yesterday! Homemade nut butter Granola with unsweet almond milk for breakfast, Salad with lots of veggies and crunchy edamame (my new favorite snack. Packs 8g of protein and only 4g net carbs),
Anyway, I have been trying to make a homemade peanut buttery granola for awhile. I made a great one using real peanut butter but, I wanted to tone down the nutrient density and calories just a bit. I have tried cooking with powdered Peanut butter and to be honest, I have not been a fan! It makes things stale, tastes pretty gross, and has a different texture.
I wondered about making granola with it though. Would the baking make it better? Yes!
2 cups oats
1/2 c. Powdered PB (Try to find one with out added sugar) I like this one:
Dash of salt
1/2 c. applesauce (no sugar, just apples)
1/4 c. Honey
Add together the oats, PB, and salt. Mix up till the oats are nicely coated. Mix together the applesauce and honey. Pour over the oat mixture. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet (i like to cover mine with parchment to help prevent a nasty pan). Bake at 325 degrees until granola is dried. I stirred mine every 6-8 minutes and baked for a total of 30 minutes.
Enjoy as a snack or as cereal! Sometime I add in raw almonds and/or dried fruit for extra flavor!
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
