Peanuts have been quite a subject in the health world, they are one of the staples in many houses (hello peanut butter sandwiches!), and they are actually part of the legumes. Also they may be one of the gratest allergies in the world, and some studies suggest that immune therapy can help train the body of a children to accept peanuts. This therapy is combined with probiotics with small portions of peanuts, in this study, after 4 years of tracking the patients who got the treatment of peanuts with probiotics, 67% of the kids could eat peanuts with no problem. (1).
Today I want to share a recipe using powdered peanut butter and a couple of other ingredients, super easy, just how I like them! I mean, who doesn't love a good quick recipe?
Coco Peanut Bites (16 balls)
- 1/2 cup of powdered peanut butter
- 1/2 cup of coconut flour
- 2 Tbsp of coconut oil
- 3 Tbsp of unsweetened almond milk
Mix all the ingredients, form into little balls and freeze.
