Not Butter

I love a variety of foods. But, if there are two things that I really miss having, it would be bread and butter. Together. Following Trim Healthy Mama, we are taught to separate our fats and carbs. That means butter is ok. And so is certain bread.

I love butter, so that’s great! Until I start sneezing. 😒

And I’ve found I do best without gluten, too. 😒

Well, this recipe takes care of the butter problem for me! 😋

There are lots of great low carb recipes that this would be great on. Like the Nuke Queen’s bread by one of the authors of THM.

Not Butter
1 cup light olive oil (to prevent a strong olive oil taste)
2 Tablespoons grated carrots (for color)
1 teaspoon sunflower lecithin granules
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon butter flavor
1 teaspoon glucomannan, optional
1 cup refined coconut oil (so there’s no coconut taste)

Put all the ingredients besides the coconut oil into the vitamix and run on high till the carrots are totally blended into the oil with no pieces left. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in the coconut oil. Place in the refrigerator to begin to harden, whisking periodically. When it has become creamy and like soft butter, spoon into molds or small containers. Store in the freezer. You can keep one in the fridge for using.

That’s it!

This is a chocolate peanut butter (no actual peanut butter) sauce or spread that is good on everything!

It is great on breads, or apples. Or you could just call it pudding and eat straight from the jar! 🙂

This would be considered a Fuel Pull (FP) if you are following Trim Healthy Mama. So, you can eat it with any fuel type!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce

1 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup defatted peanut flour
4 Tablespoons Pyure
4 Tablespoons oat fiber
1/2 teaspoon glucomannan
1 teaspoon MCT oil
1/4 teaspoon sunflower lecithin
1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions: Combine all ingredients in the blender. I like to mix the oat fiber and the glucommannan together, first, to prevent globs. Blend well and transfer to a pint size container with a lid. I like to use a canning jar! Refrigerate. It will thicken as it chills.
