Healthy Peanut Butter Puffs

Is this just as sweet as peanut butter puffs? No. Can I stop eating it once I start? Also no. These healthy peanut butter puffs are made out of chickpeas! They are crispy, delicious, and great with or without milk. You can sweeten it to taste, but I do recommend sugar over maple syrup. Maple syrup affects the puffing and is brutal to clean up.


Ingredients for your luteal phase: chickpea. During the luteal phase, you want to focus on fiber-rich foods to support the large intestine in flushing out excess estrogen and consume nutrient-dense food as your body's metabolism naturally speeds up.

Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans are great for luteal because they are high in fiber which helps flush out excess estrogen, but also high in vitamin B6 which aids progesterone production. It's also a good source of plant-based protein - and protein helps stabilize blood sugar which can help balance your mood as you go into your menstrual phase.
