Peanut Hottie is a new drink for all of those who absolutely love peanut butter. It smells and really tastes of it. My children absolutely love the Peanut Hottie Milkshake:
add in 3 tsp of Peanut Hottie (Original or with Chocolate) and as in 200ml of milk, we generally use almond milk as this is what Bubbles drinks, but you can add in whatever you chose.
I personally love peanut butter but the drink isn’t for me as it is too sweet, the boys love it and ask for it daily. If I’m just wanting to give them a little, I’ll add 1 tsp to an expresso mug, top up with recently boiled water and then add a tiny splash of their milk. It goes down a treat and they call it their chocolate coffee!
At only 83 calories, it’s low fat too and not any of the nasties in it, so I do think it’s great. I recently decided to try it in cooking as I am trying to lose weight and so can’t add in real peanut butter. I added 2 tablespoons to my usual banana muffins. It was great and the Peanut Hottie really added a nice sweetness to them and they were still good a couple of days later. They also freeze really well so can be taken out in the morning, popped in a lunch box and they’ll be defrosted by lunch time.
Here is my recipe:
75g melted butter
250g Self raising wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp of all spice or cinnamon
115g golden caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large ripe bananas
2 medium eggs
2 tbsp Peanut Hottie
Mix all together in a large bowl (don’t overmix as it doesn’t need it, just until it’s all combined) the spoon into muffin cases and bake in the oven for 20 mins at 190
– for little ones you can make mini ones like I have in the picture above, these are adult bite size and take around 15 mins to bake
– when bananas start to turn and you realise that no one is going to eat them, pop them in the freezer, these are perfect for banana muffins or banana bread, just take out of the freezer a couple of hours before baking. they go all squishy but save you lots of pounding!
– You can easily freeze these for later
