Peanut Butter Bites

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Just a quick post here today, with a few simple ingredients. I always enjoy using peanut butter because its my favourite spread and I thought I would try out coconut flour. These peanut butter bites are super smooth and have quite a strong coconut taste but it’s not too bad once you get used to it.

Peanut Butter and Raisin Flapjacks

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I used to bake flapjacks so often when I was much younger as it’s pretty simple to make. It’s actually been a while so I thought I’d switch it up using peanut butter (PB) and raisins for that lovely balance of sweet and salty. I’ve used smooth peanut butter but I feel like crunchy PB would work just as well. This is quite a sweet treat so be sure to eat with moderation, try offering some slices to your friends, family, and work colleagues!

This recipe is full of many great ingredients such as PB, oats and raisins. A great snack idea and full of protein for that extra burst of energy. These flapjacks taste so good and you get all of the flavours with a subtle hint of PB, also try them whilst slightly warm for a comforting dessert along with a scoop of ice cream.

Recipe: Peanut butter and raisin flapjacks (makes 9)

Ingredients

100g honey

100g soft brown light sugar

75g butter

75g smooth peanut butter

150g oats

50g raisins

Method

  • Set the oven to gas mark 4, line a small oven tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a small pot, add the honey, sugar, butter and peanut butter and place on a gentle heat until melted.
  • Put the oats and raisins into a large bowl and pour over the melted honey mixture, combining everything together.
  • Place into the oven for 25 minutes until golden brown but still slightly soft.
  • Wait at least 10 minutes for the flapjacks to cool down, before cutting into 9 bars.

Peanut Butter Pancakes

Hello everyone, thanks for checking out my post today!

I hope your day has been well, today’s recipe is peanut butter pancakes. If you didn’t know I’m actually quite a fan of peanut butter but I haven’t really experimented with it in other foods. I found this recipe from here and the book is called Peanut Butter: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Midnight by Tim Lannan and James Annabel if you are interested in peanut butter recipes.

The peanut butter taste is quite subtle and I even tried them with a drizzle of maple syrup the next day which was just as tasty. This recipe is great and the pancakes can be kept in the fridge for at least 2 days.

Recipe: Peanut Butter Pancakes (makes 12)

Ingredients

185g plain flour

1 tbsp baking powder

3 tbsp caster sugar

1/4 tsp salt

250ml milk

1 egg

60g peanut butter

100g chocolate chips (I added about 50g)

Oil for frying

Method

  • Sift the plain flour and baking powder into a bowl and add the sugar and salt.
  • Whisk in the milk and egg.
  • Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips
  • Heat oil in a pan, once hot put 2 tbsps of the mixture into the pan cooking until golden brown on both sides, roughly 5 minutes in total.
  • Repeat until the whole mixture is used.
  • Add a dollop of peanut butter on top and a few chocolate chips to serve.

Peanut Butter & Oat Cookies

Hello everyone I hope you are all well. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Today’s recipe is probably one of the best cookies you’ll ever make (in my opinion). They are soft, sweet and chewy…. just perfect. I really liked these cookies because they contain peanut butter, which I love and also there is no flour in the recipe which makes a change. I’ve had this recipe written in my book for many years and I don’t actually remember where I got it from but finally I’ve made them. The recipe only makes 9 cookies so you may want to double it, however they are quite indulgent.

Peanut Butter and Oat Cookies (makes 9)

Ingredients

100g smooth/crunch peanut butter

100g soft brown sugar

1 egg

100g porridge oats

1 pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder

30g chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Put the peanut butter, sugar and egg into a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
  • Next, add all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon until everything is combined (you might want to use your hands for this).
  • Then roll the mixture into 9 even balls and flatten down on the tray.
  • Bake them in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden but still soft and leave to cool on the tray.

What I eat in a day

Hello everyone and thanks for clicking on my blog, I hope your Sunday is going well. So far today I having done my usual morning routine (see previous post) and I’ve just been relaxing. Today I’m sharing the main meals that I eat in a day. Usually, I don’t make a habit of eating loads in the morning although it’s known to be the most important meal of the day, I prefer something small. Lunch is usually something light or quick and dinner is probably the meal I most look forward too.

Breakfast: 1 cup of water, 1 brioche and a homemade smoothie using 1 orange 1 apple and a handful of mixed berries

Lunch: 1 cup of water and 6 crackers with peanut butter

Dinner: Fried dumplin, chapatis, veg, corncob and fish

This is what I ate for my main meals and there were a few snacks too like the Cool Dorritos and Skittles. I didn’t quite manage my 5 fruits and veg but I hope this is a bit of inspo for when you plan your next meals. I have read something that stated lunch should be the bigger meal to give the food more time to be digested before you go to sleep and the body rests which does actually make sense but I do what works for me and try not to eat dinner too late.

Let me know in the comments what your favourite mealtime is, mine is dinner.
