Taylor's Peanut Brittle
I have always loved peanut brittle but disliked the sugar and butter that most traditional recipes call for. My friend Flo let me taste some she made; and, while it still has oil and maple syrup, it’s still a much healthier alternative for “once in a while.”
- 3 cup raw chopped peanuts
- 1½ cup uncooked quinoa
- 1½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 6 Tbsp coconut sugar
- 6 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Heat oil and maple syrup together in a small pan until melted.
Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into two portions and spread each one on a cookie sheet as thinly as possible.
Bake 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and score with a rubber spatula.
Return to oven and bake an additional 15 minutes, watching carefully to make sure it does not burn.
Allow to cook.
When cool, break into pieces and serve.
