Pantry Substitutes - Home & Family

Nutritionist Alexandra Catalano is breaking down what you keep and what you throw away in your pantry.

Directions for Sweet Honey Butter

1) Mix together ingredients and then rub on skin. Wear Body butter for 15-20 minutes and then rinse.

2) This works even better if you exfoliate your skin first

Directions for Porridge

In a jar or container large combine all the ingredients. Whisk until combined. Cover and refrigerate at least 2-3 hours or overnight. Top sliced banana, caco nibs, more peanut butter, or whatever you would like.

Directions for Truffle Bites

Mix all the listed ingredients into a blender. Scoop out a tablespoon and form mini balls with your hands. You can roll these truffle bites in crushed nuts, coconut flakes , raw cacao powder or enjoy as is. Place in freezer for 10 minutes and enjoy!

Directions for Brownies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a small 4x6 or 6x6 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside (a smaller pan yields thicker brownies) Add all your ingredients into a high speed blender or blend by hand. You can also use a food processor. Immerse until just blended (if you overdo it, it will take significantly longer to cook). Transfer brownie batter to loaf pan and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out just clean. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan completely before slicing into brownie bars.
