I was asked recently if I would like to try and do something creative in the kitchen with Peanut Hottie.
I have had a lot of fun trying Peanut Hottie and seeing what you can cook with it! I had never thought of cooking with it before. It tastes lovely as a hot drink and a great alternative to a hot chocolate. At 83 calories per cup it is a great low fat treat. It is also suitable for vegetarians caffeine free (great for bedtime!) and no artificial additives or colours. Peanut Hottie have just released a new version, Chocolate Peanut Hottie, which is divine! I just had to see what I could do with it in a recipe, it’s a winning combo!
So, Here is my recipe for Peanut Banana Oaty Muffins
30g Oats (I used a packet of Oat So Simple Multigrain)
2 x eggs, beaten
1 x mullerlight yoghurt, (I used vanilla with dark chocolate sprinkles) – you could use any low fat yogurt
2 x teaspoons Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hottie
Half a ripe banana, mashed
Add oats to a bowl.
Add yoghurt and stir together
Add 2 x teaspooons of Peanut Butter and Chocolate Hottie.
Add the eggs and mix well until all combined.
Add the banana and stir.
Seperate into 6 muffin tins, and cook in the oven 200 degrees until cooked (15-20 minutes).
Allow to cool, serve with fresh banana and perhaps some yoghurt or chocolate sauce.
These are really nice, great for a quick brekkie or a snack. They are a little more squidgy than normal muffins just to warn you, but I found them pleasant enough to eat. I would maybe add more oats to give them a more flapjack feel in hindsight and something I will try soon!
Why not try….PANCAKES
You could also use this mixture to make some american style “magic” pancakes – watch this space as I will give this a go very soon and show you what they look like!
Slimming World Notes:
On slimming world, at the time of publishing, the oats would be your HEB. Syn the cooked banana (2 syns) and the peanut hottie (10g = 2 syns) and you have 6 muffins for 4 syns (about 0.5 syns per muffin) (if not using HEB then add 6 syns =10 syns for 6 or 1.5 syns a muffin).
If making this, make sure you weigh and count everything and check your values in the book or online – as syns can change!
Chocolate Peanut Hottie is £2.99 and available from Tesco, Sainsburys and Waitrose.
