Yummy Treat using Nectresse a No Calorie Sweetner { Review }

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

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

Ingredients:
* 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!!!
