Peanutty Peanut Butter Squares – Fixate

This momma is always on a mission to find healthy snacks that my daughter and I can make together. Now that my son is almost 10 months old…he is joining in on the baking fun too! I purchased the FIXATE cookbook to help take the guesswork out of my nutrition plan. There are large colorful pictures to compliment each recipe – I’m a big fan of the pictures when it comes to cookbooks! There’s so many amazing recipes in this book ranging from Gluten Free to Paleo to Vegan and Vegetarian. Not to mention each recipe indicates the seven color coded container equivalents per serving. We all know that nutrition plays a huge role in helping each of us achieve our fitness goals. It’s not a matter of figuring out what to eat; it’s also a question of figuring out how much to eat. Of course, I was excited to see the desserts included in the FIXATE cookbook and I couldn’t wait to make the Peanutty Peanut Butter Squares with my kids. A definite win in our family!

peanut butter, FIXATE, 21 Day Fixed Approved

INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly coat 8 x 8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Combine peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, eggs, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl; mix well.
  4. Evenly spread batter into 8 x 8 inch baking pan; smooth top with a spatula.
  5. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes. Squares may be a little soft when coming out of the oven, but they will continue to cook. The cooking time using my stove was closer to 27 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool and then cut into squares.

Each serving would equate to 1 yellow and 2 1/2 spoons if following the color coded container system. The recipe makes enough for 16 servings.

The color coded containers and the FIXATE cookbook are available for purchase in my fitness shop.

FIXate Cookbook – Autumn Calabrese

It is true that to obtain results with our health and fitness goals that we should have these 3 ingredients :

  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
  • Support

You might be skeptical if you have not purchased your own challenge pack from me and started on your journey to health and wellness. It really is that simple to get started and start seeing results!

  1. Exercise– 30 minutes of exercise each day; no guess work…simply PRESS PLAY and follow the program from the comfort of your own home. You might need to modify at first, but that is OK! Strive for progress and not perfection.
  2. Nutrition– Honestly, paying $3.83 for a meal that is full of nutrition is cheap! I understand that finances get in the way, but I guarantee there is always a way to make it work. INVESTING in YOURSELF is so important for you mentally and physically!
  3. Support– On a monthly basis, I run virtual private accountability groups on Facebook as well as offer 1:1 support. I can tell you that the more willing and more committed you are then then the faster you will obtain results with minimum interruption to your busy life.

So what is one of the biggest ingredients that we struggle with most⁉ Typically, it is NUTRITION! Thank goodness that Autumn Calabrese has come out with a new cookbook called FIXate with 101 of her personal recipes! The cookbook is designed to work with the 21 Day Fix color coded containers. FIXate includes different food choices; vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and paleo recipes. Enjoy snacks, desserts, and the occasional cocktail!

There are kids recipes, gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and of course the 21 Day Fix recipes which help identify how many of each color coded portion container. No more asking…What should we have for dinner⁉

YOU are worth it! Start BELIEVING it and take action!

Below are some images of recipes from the FIXate cookbook that I have prepared for my family as part of our weekly meal planning. This cookbook truly makes meal planning less complex! Eating clean does not mean depriving yourself.
