Peanut Butter Apple Crisp for One!

I've had a major sweet tooth lately. Rather than fight it I've just went with it. I've been very stressed and emotional and for me that sometimes means eating a bit more sugar. Rather than feel guilty I've done my best to choose sweets with some added nutrition. Now that isn't always the case, especially when my sister buys me pumpkin candy corn (the ones shaped like pumpkins). No nutrition gains there, but so good! Some days you need that. Another night this week I had peanut butter cookies left from Molly. So good! They were moist and dense, just how I like a cookie. The nutritional powerhouse there was the peanut butter, which has:

  • Protein
  • Unsaturated fat (aka healthy fat)

This weekend I also made peanut butter apple crisp. And since I'm traveling tomorrow I wanted only one serving. This recipe is loaded with nutrition from the peanut butter, oats, and apples:

  • Protein
  • Unsaturated fat (aka healthy fat)
  • Whole grains
  • Fiber
  • Potassium
