Plenty of people have peanut allergies and I know first hand how serious they can be - my mother-in-law is severely allergic to peanuts so when I heard about WOWButter I was super intrigued to learn more!
I should go ahead and answer the question that probably matters the most to everyone, how does it taste? JUST like peanut butter, I mean to the extent that I couldn't tell the difference! It's creamy, smooth, and peanut buttery without containing peanuts, GMO's, gluten, added colors, flavors or preservatives... basically a heaven sent replacement to peanut butter.
As a future teacher, I plan on using only WOWButter when making myself anything that calls for peanut butter simply because even the oils from peanut butter can make someone with a peanut allergy react. It's really just a safety thing in my book and since this #SchoolSafeSpread
Now that you know more about my favorite peanut butter replacement, I want to share my new favorite recipe to make with the tasty spread! This Loaded French Toast recipe is the perfect treat for your sweetie that can't eat peanuts! With just a sprinkling of chocolate chips and a light drizzle of Banana Cream Pie sauce the WOWButter still holds the spotlight and is complimented perfectly!
PB, Chocolate Chip, and Banana Cream Loaded French Toast -
Made with Peanut Butter Alternative WOWButter
1/4 cup milk
4 tbsp sugar (more to sweeten)
2 tbsp flour
dash of salt salt
1 egg yolk, lightly whisked with just a dash of vanilla extract
2-4 slices bread
handful of chocolate chips
2-3 tbsp WowButter
I actually made a banana cream pie and had left over filling and used it as a sauce, but this recipe will make an amazing sauce without giving you enough to make a pie! You'll want to begin by combining the milk, sugar, flour, and salt in a sauce pan and allowing it to slowly heat. Once it starts to thicken, spoon some of the mixture into the whisked egg and vanilla (from the stove into the mixing bowl) so that you can slowly raise the temperature of the egg without frying it. Once the egg seems to be warm enough, pour the entire mixture back into the sauce pan and allow to simmer until it thickens to your preferred consistency. You'll want to use 3/4 of your 1/2 of banana in a food processor and place the pureed banana in the mixture just before removing from heat.
While you are waiting for your sauce to heat though, you can lightly toast your bread (I used gluten-free bread but you can use white, whole wheat, whatever). I simply just place mine in the toaster. I then top my bread with WowButter immediately after removing from the toaster so the WowButter slightly melts. Next you'll add a sprinkle of chocolate chips.
Once your sauce is complete, top your toast with the delicious mixture (you can now fry your french toast in a pan if you would like but it taste delicious without)! I added a piece of sliced banana to the top of my Loaded French Toast and chowed down!
I would like to extend my gratitude to Wowbutter again, for sponsoring this post and for making this awesome peanut butter alternative!
