    Peanut Hottie Porridge

    In honour of National Porridge Day falling on the 10th October, we want to showcase our three favourite toppings to make a sometimes dull breakfast staple that little bit more exciting…

    Apple Pie Porridge

    For those who want to embrace the autumnal season, this porridge is bound to get you feeling warm and toasty. Simply chop an apple before microwaving and add cinnamon, brown sugar or honey to taste once cooked. Full recipe here

    Peanut Butter & Banana 

    An alternative to the classic American style ‘PB & J’, this porridge uses just two ingredients, peanut butter and bananas. Simply add the ingredients before microwaving and voilà! Recipe here.

    Fruit and Nut

    For a fruity start to your day try this fruit and nut porridge. Pile in chocolate (add dark chocolate if you prefer), raspberries and hazelnuts before microwaving for the perfect decadent porridge.

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Here at Peanut Hottie HQ we love a nutty story. This week, we’ve been on the look-out for some of the nuttiest things you guys have been up to this summer.

    Have you seen Damien ‘Flamien’ Walters? This stunt-nutter gets extra hot by putting on a ‘fire suit’, setting himself alight and going for a run through the forest! We think he could do with a nice Peanut Hottie milkshake to cool himself down…

    In another video that we witnessed (with out eyes shut very tightly), Damien is not on fire this time, but bungee jumping off the top of a crane! Now we know you’re probably thinking, ‘guys, that’s not that nutty!’ Well Damien is one step ahead of us and he’s not doing this all strapped up with harnesses, oh no. He’s just holding on to the end of the bungee cord with his hands, and letting go at the bottom! What a nutter! 

    We recommend that you do not try this at home. Instead, sit down with a glass / mug of Peanut Hottie, as our nutty goodness will give you the same thrilling feeling! #PeanutLove

  • Don’t go nutty with fad diets! by Guest Fitness and Diet Blogger CQ

    A smart man once said, ‘there are no shortcuts to any place worth going’ and the words of Earl Nightingale still ring true today – particularly when it comes to diet and fitness.

    Coming into the summer you may have noticed an increase in ads promising ‘quick-fix’ weight-loss… ‘I lost 4 stone in 5 weeks- find out my secret!’, ‘Ditch the gym and get ripped in 2 weeks with this one tip!’ and ‘Who has time for the gym? Lose 3 dress sizes in a month’.

    Although it is in our nature to go for the quick route, there is no point in papering over the cracks: Yes, you may see results but what happens when you stop taking the ‘miracle pill’ or finish the ‘liquid diet’?

    You will pile it all back on again… plus more.

    A close family member of mine participated in such a ‘liquid diet’ advertised in stores across the country, in the hand of a slim size 8 model with a healthy glow and huge smile.

    Evidently the model didn’t do the diet herself. Instead of having the huge high watt smile, the mentioned family member was constantly moody and would throw massive tantrums at the sight of a chocolate bar.

    The ‘healthy glow’ in the ad was contrasted with her dull, yellowish complexion and hair loss… it effectively is glorified starvation.

    Although she reached her goal of three stone weight loss in almost as many weeks, she piled it all back on… and more.

    It wasn’t that she didn’t stick to the ‘aftercare’ diet, she ate fruit and low-fat food, her body just clung to every morsel that she put into her mouth for fear she would submit it to such starvation again.

    Now said person has been converted to a sensible weight-loss programme by joining a slimming class and embarking on an exercise regime and has lost three stone.

    Although it took her longer to lose the same amount of weight, gone are the mood swings and ill complexion; now she has her own ‘glow’ that would rival the ‘liquid diet’ model’s.

    We sometimes lack the willpower to lose weight and get fit but time is the key. As long as you pick yourself up and learn from your mistakes, then you can be where you want to be.

    Health and fitness is an education and no ‘quick weight loss’ plaster is going to heal a lifetime of bad choices.

    Next time you find yourself saying, ‘I want to lose weight’, change it into be something productive; imagine yourself in six months as opposed to a month and you will feel such satisfaction when you reach your goal, knowing that you have achieved it through hard work and perseverance.

    When you get disheartened and the ‘liquid-diet’ model’s figure is tempting you to the dark side, remember the wise words of a modern guru: ‘Fitness – If it came in a bottle, everybody would have a good body’ (Cher).         

     

    Did you know that Peanut Hottie is the perfect way for slimmers to satisfy that crafty little sweet tooth without feeling guilty?

    It can be used to create an array of low-syn, low-calorie yummy food, from cakes and cheesecakes to breakfasts and cookies. Check out the website for recipes and tips.

  • Easy Peanut Butter Butterfly Cakes by hodge podge days

    Check out this yummy and very popular recipe by Hodge Podge Days 

    I’ve been doing a lot of baking recently which can only mean one thing, I’m happy. I’m not sure why I’ve been blessed with the gift of temporary inner peace but I’m going with it and enjoying the cakey results. Yesterday on a whim I whipped up an experimental batch of Peanut Butter Cakes. They turned out to be pretty darn good, so I’m sharing the recipe. It’s really easy, if I can bake it then so can you.

    Easy Peanut Butter Butterfly Cakes (makes approx 20)

    Ingredients:
    8oz Butter or margarine (I used stork)
    8oz sugar
    4 large eggs
    2oz peanut hottie powder
    1 teaspoon of baking soda
    6oz self raising flour

    For the icing:
    2 big scoops of Betty Crocker vanilla buttercream style icing
    2 heaped dessert spoons of Chocolate Peanut butter hottie

    Method:
    1. Beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy and the stir in the eggs.
    2. Carefully fold through the peanut hottie powder, baking soda and self raising flour until combined.
    3. Dollop into cake cases, there should be enough to make about 20 buns.
    4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 15 minutes. Once cooked leave to cool.
    5. To make the icing (yes this is cheaty, but you can make your own buttercream if you want), beat the buttercream until soft and thoroughly mix in the chocolate peanut hottie powder, add a drop of hot water if it feels too stiff.
    6. Carefully cut a circle out of the top of each of your cooled cakes, cut the circle in two, dollop a teaspoon of buttercream into the hole and top with the halves to make them look like butterfly wings.

    Resist the temptation to eat them all in one go.

    So there you have it, really, really easy peanut butter cakes, they’re something that would be great to bake with children, or just by yourself if you’re in your happy place like me.
