Healthy After School Snack with Nectresse- Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nectresse™ Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
NECTRESSE™Sweetener is a new no calorie sweetener that is 150 time sweeter then sugar and can be used in cooking and baking.  It is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit (monk fruit).  It is a great way to add some sweetness to a recipe without adding calories!

I  used it to make Peanut Butter Granola:
Ingredients:
8 NECTRESSE™Sweetener packets,
1/2 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups old fashion oats
1 cup dried fruit
1 cup roaster peanuts (optional- I did not add to mine)
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
2. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray (or line with tin foil)
3. Combine: NECTRESSE™Sweetener packets, peanut butter, margarine, honey and cinnamon in a small saucepan.  Bring to a simmer, take off heat and then add the vanilla.
4. Pour peanut butter mixture over the oats in a mixing bowl and stir to coat.
5. Pour granola onto the cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until brown, stirring often.  Let cool and then add the dried fruit and peanuts.  Store in an air tight container for up to one week.
This makes a great healthy snack or breakfast!  It is so yummy!  My kids and hubby love it!
