Dieting or not, Dr. Richard Mattes, Ph.D.,R.D., a professor of nutrition at Purdue University. says "a tablespoon or two of peanut butter is all it takes to net a world of benefits for both the heart and waistline. And don't obsess about peanut butter being a source of trans fats." A study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture finds no detectable trans fats in a standard two tablespoon serving. After that being said I present you with this recipe, which I found on cookinglightcentral.com. This kid-friendly indulgence was a hit at taste testing and received "our" highest rating.
