Don’t knock it until you’ve tired it! I know at first glance this recipe might not look like the decadent dessert of your dreams, but think again. Be prepared for the dark horse of the dessert world…
- 1 Piece of flaxseed bread
- 1 Tablespoon good quality sugar free or low sugar peach jam (or sub other flavors)
- 2 Tablespoon homemade peanut butter (or substitute a quality store-bought brand)
- Handful chocolate chips (the higher the cocoa content the better. I use dairy free chips)
- Handful toasted walnuts
- Half a peach, diced
- Place your nuts into a cast iron skillet and heat on medium high heat until they are strongly aromatic.*
- Slice off a good size piece of your flaxseed bread or if you made muffins, use one of those.
- Slice or break open the bread or muffin like you would an English muffin and place in toaster oven.
- Toast until the little peaks of the flaxseed bread start to turn brown.
- Once it has finished toasting, shut your toaster oven and open the door. Don't take your flax bread out yet.
- While your bread is resting and further crispifying in the toaster, scoop your peanut butter into a bowl and microwave for a 30 seconds, or a minute if you are using a store bought variety.
- Remove from microwave and confirm you have melt-y peanut butter.
- Place your crispy bread in a bowl and pour your melt-y peanut butter over the top.
- Moving quickly, scatter the chocolate chips over the top (you want to move quickly so that the peanut butter doesn't cool and the chocolate chips get gooey and delicious).
- Drop your peach jelly in small clumps over everything.
- For the final touch break up the nuts by hand and sprinkle on top.
So what do you think? So good? Or just a weird thing that I love? An added bonus of this recipe is that it is rich and delicious in all the right ways, and also includes some really healthful ingredients.
