So these are a bit like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups/Eggs. I just made mine round shape. I adapted this recipe from one I found online. It's not exactly like a peanut butter cup but yummy, kid and husband approved, and rich.
1 8 oz package of 1/3 less fat Cream cheese
1/2 C butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil(Louanna brand so it didn't have the coconutty flavor)
1 C Peanut flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
10-12 shakes Nustevia Pure Extract Powder(out of tiny holes)
Combine all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and mixed well. Then shape into round patties and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 min. I made 20 patties. I could have made them a little thinner I think and gotten quite a few more.
Make a recipe of skinny chocolate(from THM book). Dip patties with a toothpick to fully cover in chocolate. Then dip a second time. You may want to make a double batch of skinny chocolate as I ran out with about 4 left to be double dipped. Keep in the refrigerator. (I put them in the freezer and a couple hours later I thought we might break our teeth trying to take a bite plus the middle is tastier when creamy and smooth and not frozen).
I hope you all get a chance to try them and enjoy! They are YUMMY!! And they worked out on the first try. I hate to waste ingredients so was very happy they were tasty.
Pearl, I knew about the calories but also just didn't want to have to buy more specialty ingredients as I don't have swerve. So was trying to figure out how to get a drier/creamy not wet texture without powdered type sugar and thought, DUH!, peanut flour and tada recipe created!
steffanie3: For breads you want to stick with the E guidelines of whole grain sourdoughed or sprouted or whole grain rye.

asensenig: Does this include Ezekiel Bread? I have a THM recipe that calls for 7 cups wheat kernels. It does not mention that it needs to be sprouted or rye.

steffanie3: Ezekiel is sprouted. You could post your recipe up in a post so we could see it

asensenig: Following is the recipe I used for Ezekiel Bread. 7 cups Wheat Kernels; 1 cup Ezekiel Mix; 1000 mg Vitamin C Tablet; 5 cups warm water; 1/2 cup Honey; 1/2 cup butter, slightly softened); 2 T salt; 3 T Saf Yeast; 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten. Ezekiel mix next

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.
Apr 14, 2014 12:54:31 GMT -5
asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.
Apr 16, 2014 16:01:42 GMT -5
steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
