Easy Broccoli Stir Fry

If you are looking a quick meal idea, this Easy Broccoli Stir Fry is it.  I was inspired to make this recipe by my Thai Peanut Sauce recipe.  I thought it would go really well with the broccoli since I sometimes put broccoli in my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry recipe.

I slightly tweaked the peanut sauce for this recipe.  It came out pretty yummy!

I added peanuts for some crunch and extra protein.  If you wanted, you can stretch this meal by serving it over rice or quinoa.  As is, this Broccoli stir fry is vegan and gluten free.

Sweet and Spicy Roasted Peanuts

These Sweet and Spicy Roasted Peanuts will become your new favorite snack.  Perfect for game day snacking too.  They pack big flavors with hints of sweetness and an extra kick of spices.  Just like my maple glazed pecans, this recipe is going to be hard to stop eating!

If you have an allergy to peanuts, I do think any other nut should work as well.  Sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds might also work for a nut-free option.  You can make these up in about 10 minutes.  Super easy snacking!

I also think roasted chickpeas may be delicious with this seasoning.  I think I will try those next.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these roasted peanuts as much as we did!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars

I had a reader request a recipe for this flavor of larabar.  Peanut butter chocolate chip larabars.  Since I love all things larabar, I had to try these peanut butter chocolate chip larabars.  I still love the Coconut Cream Larabar the best, but this one is pretty good too.

I am more of an almond butter girl myself, but my husband LOVES peanut butter so I know that these will be gobbled up fast.  I may try a second batch with almonds.  I love recipes like this because they are just so easy.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In the food processor , blend the peanuts and salt into a powder.
  2. Pit the dates and add them in as well.
  3. If needed, slowly add a bit of water to help the mixture come together.
  4. Once the dough is formed, line and 8×8 glass baking dish with parchment paper leaving enough room for some paper to stick out the sides.
  5. Carefully, spoon the dough into the pan evenly. The dough will be very sticky and you may need to wet the spatula a bit.
  6. Using the extra paper, pack the dough down until it is flat and even.
  7. Place in the fridge to firm up.

Notes

I store them in the fridge. They should keep at least a week if you can get them to last that long!
