Make Healthier Peanut Butter Desserts

By Brandi Goodman 

Peanut butter is a popular choice for sandwiches and snacks. It's a favorite among many. Not all peanut butter recipes are healthy for you, though. You should be making healthier peanut butter desserts that can satisfy your craving while still providing nutritional value. 

Homemade Peanut Butter

You don't have to use a store-bought option in your desserts. You can create a homemade peanut butter that is far better for you to consume. It won't have all the extra chemicals and ingredients that many store-bought options have. Dry-roasted, unsalted peanuts, organic honey, and kosher salt is all you need to concoct your own.

Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Protein makes a great snack option because it keeps you full for longer. A cookie dough peanut butter protein ball can be created with healthier ingredients for a nutritious option. You can use your homemade peanut butter, coconut flour, protein powder, vanilla extract, unsweetened almond milk, and chocolate chips for this recipe. 

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lentil Bars

If you're looking for a gluten-free and vegan option, peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip lentil bars are a healthy possibility. Your homemade peanut butter, red lentils, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, gluten-free rolled oats, baking soda, sea salt, and vegan chocolate chips get used for this dessert. You'll get protein, potassium, fiber, magnesium, and other nutrients from this treat.

Peanut Butter Quinoa Granola Bars

Sustained energy is what you'll get from the peanut butter quinoa granola bar. Make it with quinoa, gluten-free rolled oats, homemade peanut butter, salt, honey, vanilla extract, coconut oil, chia seeds, and dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate packs a lot of antioxidants and is better than other chocolate versions. 

Peanut Butter Flaxseed Pancakes

Sometimes a hot breakfast is what you're after. Pancakes are a great option, but they're normally not made very healthy. A peanut butter flaxseed pancake solves that problem. Flaxseed offers protein, fiber, and magnesium. Add it to your diet if you want to lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of heart disease, and control diabetes. For the pancakes, use flaxseed, homemade peanut butter, non-dairy butter, unsweetened almond milk, agave nectar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oat flour, vanilla extract, and whole wheat pastry flour. 

Peanut butter provides protein and can be a great dessert option that will satisfy your hunger. You just need to be sure you're making healthier choices when it comes to the peanut butter you're choosing and the foods you're making with it. A few small changes can go a long way toward bettering your health.
