I am always on the looking out for healthier eating options not only for myself but for my family too. We love to eat a varitey of foods and several of them call to have sugar added. I am not a big fan of alot of sugar, especially when serving to my 3 little ones. I was excited recently when I was introduced to Nectresse. It is from the makers of Splenda Sweetners.
Nectresse is a no calorie sweetener that is 100% Natural and made from Monk Fruit.
I added it to my cereal and my kids used it while eating strawberries. We honestly could not tell the difference and it had a great taste. I am really happy that my children like it as it is a much healthier option for them and my husband and I.
I also decided to make a fun snack with them that we would have to use the Nectresse in.
It is called Peanut Butter Granola.
Prep Time was about 10 mins and make time 30 mins
* 8 Nectresse Natural No Calorie Sweetner, Packets
* 1/2 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter
* 1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup honey
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 2 cups corn flake cereal
* 1 cup cheerios
* 1/4 cup peanuts
We started by preheating our oven to 300 degrees
We then sprayed a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then set it aside.
I then combined the NECTRESSE™Sweetener, peanut butter, margarine, honey and cinnamon in a small saucepan. I brought it to a simmer and then set it aside.
I then took a bowl and mixed the corn flakes and cheerios together. I then poured the peanut butter mixture over the cereal mix and stir to coat it all.
I then poured it onto the cookie sheet and spread it out.
Then baked it for 30 mins, stirring often and then allowed to cool.
When cooled, I then mixed in the peanuts.
It was a huge hit and we all loved it. Made for a yummy after school snack!!!
