Trim Healthy Mama “E” Low-Fat Peanut Butter Granola
Drumroll please….this is my first “E” style recipe! Long overdue, I know. I enjoy eating “E” meals all the time but when it comes to recipe development, it’s new territory for me. Low-fat baking is not my natural forte. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, refer to the Trim Healthy Mama books for more information on this style of eating – there’s lot of free information out there too if you’re just curious!).
Granola is one of my favorite foods. I probably haven’t gone a week without eating it since I was a kid. Of course, traditional granola is inherently a crossover, so while I do want to develop a THM crossover granola recipe, I focused this week on coming up with a “E” granola that I can enjoy as part of fruit-filled parfaits and cereal bowls. The resulting recipe couldn’t be simpler or more delicious.
It only has three ingredients – oats, powdered peanut butter, and sugar-free pancake syrup. I used the homemade syrup from the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook, but you could use store-bought for even more of a shortcut.
If you’re interested in more “E” recipes, let me know! My Trim Healthy Mama challenge (which you can follow along with in the YouFood food journalling app – username Margeaux_C) is going well. Staying 100% “on plan” naturally makes me try new things and get innovative. I tend to get stuck in comfortable ruts like most people.
Trim Healthy Mama “E” Low-Fat Peanut Butter Granola Notes:
- A serving of this granola is anywhere between 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup, depending on how many other carb sources you’re including in your meal. Just treat 1/2 cup the same way you would 1 serving of oatmeal!
- If you like, experiment with adding flavored extracts, cocoa powder, or granulated sweetener to alter the flavor. The recipe as written is mildly sweet.
