More About This Recipe

  • Fiber One™ Bars have revolutionized breakfast for me. This super quick and easy morning meal tastes like a candy bar but is actually good for you. They can also be a great pre-workout snack, or a simply lovely 3 p.m. treat perfect for warding off the evil afternoon slump at your desk. In fact, they’re such a delicious treat that I made them into a dessert. And not just any dessert, but a pretty, chocolatey, party-worthy dessert!To make these delicious Fiber One™ Chocolate and Peanut Butter Parfaits, you’ll need: chocolate (pudding, mousse or even Nutella will work), peanut butter, whipped cream and of course, Fiber One™ Bars! There are many Fiber One Bar flavors, but my favorite is Chocolate Caramel & Pretzel. At only 90 calories, this sweet tasting bar is awesome, but feel free to check out all the flavors on your own to pick your favorite!Be sure to be careful about your layering—you want the parfait layers to look pretty, not sloppy. For a garnish, you guessed it—use Fiber One!This easy to assemble, no bake dessert is perfect for entertaining. It takes about 5 minutes to put together, so anyone can do this. The parfaits would be great as dessert “shots” as well, using small dessert glasses and a mini spoon for the added cuteness factor.

Sometimes called a Weight Watcher Cookie, the secret to keeping this healthy snack at only 1 Weight Watcher point each is that they are full of fiber. Each Fiber Crunchie has 3 grams of fiber, which means you’ll fill up faster while satisfying your chocolate craving at the same time.

If your’e feeling confused about why high fiber is a good way to go, let me explain. In a nutshell, high fiber foods digest more slowly, which means the food stays in your stomach longer, making you feel full faster and stay full longer. This is helpful when you are trying to cut calories but not give into the need to munch.

In addition, the peanut butter in this recipe gives these healthy cookies some protein which is great for a little mid-day snack when you need a pick-me-up. You can make these ahead of time and then snack on them whenever! Put them in a sandwich bag and stick them in your purse or your gym bag or even just in your car (as long as it’s not too hot outside)! They are also great for kids lunches! Make sure they are always stored in an air-tight container. You can store them on the counter, but I like to stick them in the fridge and eat them cold too.

Recipes With Cereal: Fiber One Original Cereal Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Cereal is awesome. Period. End of story. Not only is it the perfect meal for breakfast (or dinner), but it is a great ingredient to use for snacks, desserts and some savory dishes.

Anytime I have cereal, I always like to read the back of the box, looking for recipes or interesting ways to use the cereal instead of just pouring it into a bowl with some milk. While enjoying my bowl of Fiber One Original cereal for breakfast the other day, I noticed a recipe for chocolate haystacks that intrigued my sweet tooth. The best part, though, is that they are only 70 calories a piece. So, naturally, I had to give them a shot.

With the first day of school quickly approaching, this snack/dessert is perfect for your kids to enjoy for something sweet in their lunchbox or for a healthy after school snack. Here's how you can make these chocolate-peanut butter haystacks with Fiber One Original cereal, but with a slight twist.

This is one of the simplest recipes, so don't worry about heating up the oven and simultaneously heating up the kitchen it's too dang hot outside. First, line a cookie sheet that will fit inside your refrigerator with parchment paper or wax paper.

Next, prepare the glue that will bind the cereal together to form the haystacks. The original recipe calls for milk chocolate chips and peanut butter, but surprisingly, I had neither of those on hand, but I did have chocolate PB2 and white chocolate chips.

I figured that the chocolate flavor from the PB2 would balance well with the white chocolate chips, plus by using the PB2 instead of real peanut butter I could shave off a few calories and grams of fat, making each haystack a lot healthier.

Mix together half a cup of chocolate PB2 powder with a quarter cup of water to create a smooth consistency. Place the chocolate PB2 into a large microwave-safe bowl, along with two cups of white chocolate chips.

Melt the white chocolate with the chocolate PB2 in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds, then stir the mixture to melt the white chocolate chips some more. Be careful not to burn the chocolate PB2 if it appears to be burning, add a splash of water to the bowl and stir.

Once the white chocolate and chocolate PB2 are blended together, add one pouch of Fiber One Original cereal and stir until the cereal is glued together by the white chocolate and chocolate PB2 mixture.

Use a spoon to scoop out haystacks, then place each treat on the lined cookie sheet. Because I used the PB2 instead of regular peanut butter, I could make the haystacks a little bigger than the suggested size from the recipe. Place the sheet in the refrigerator for the haystacks to harden, then they're ready to be eaten.

The chocolate and peanut butter flavors from the PB2 balance perfectly with the white chocolate chips and subtle sweetness from the Fiber One Original cereal. The haystacks are sticky, sweet and are quite healthy. Trust me, your kids will think these are delicious treats, rather than a healthier version of a cookie.

Fiber One Versus Other Fiber

If Fiber One bars are your primary source of sugar, these products can certainly be considered healthy granola bars. However, natural sugars are still healthier than added sugars. This means that you should make sure you're consuming products like Fiber One in limited amounts due to their added sugar content.

While Fiber One bars can be healthy if you limit consumption, you'll need to get most of your daily fiber intake from other food products. The best sources of fiber come from plant-based products. Healthy sources of fiber include fruits, like:

  • Pears
  • Avocados
  • Apples
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Figs
  • Oranges
  • Bananas
  • Prunes

Healthy sources of fiber also include legumes, such as:

  • Navy beans
  • White beans
  • Pinto beans
  • Soybeans
  • Split peas
  • Chickpeas
  • Lentils
  • Cowpeas
  • Pigeon peas

Healthy sources of fiber can also be vegetables, including:

Remember that consuming the skins of fruits and vegetables — like apples, carrots and sweet potatoes — can particularly help in supporting a healthy fiber intake. Nuts and seeds are often rich in fiber too, but may also be rich in other macronutrients, like fat.

PB2 Recipes

These PB2 recipes will surprise you with their flavor to calorie ratio. PB2 is one of those miracle substances that taste like a higher calorie version.

PB2 has 90% less fat than traditional peanut butter. Here are the nutritional facts for two tablespoons of PB2:

60 calories, 1.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 5 g carbohydrates, 2 g sugar, 6 g protein, 1 g fiber, 90 mg sodium, 2 Green, 2 Blue, 2 Purple WW SmartPts

It is essentially peanut butter without the oil. Literally, they take the peanut product that is left over after you extract the oil and make PB2.

Below are recipes that I have developed with PB2. Most of them are smoothies because it is so easy to add to your favorite blended drink. You don’t notice that you aren’t using peanut butter when you mix it.

On its own (reconstituted with water), you definitely notice that PB2 is NOT peanut butter. I tried that and was not happy with the results.

But, add it to things where you want a peanut flavor without the oil and you have a magical product.

Have you used PB2 in recipes? What did you put it in? Thanks for sharing!!

Fashionably Healthy

Tuesday night on The Biggest Loser, Bob recommended to Mandi and Aubrey that they can increase their fiber intake by eating a Fiber One bar. While I am not usually bothered by these product placements, the subject of fiber is one I am very passionate about (see “Cracker to Satisfy Carb Cravings” and “Brantastic Crackers“), so I felt compelled to look into the high fiber claim.

Since I have never tried the bar and it sounded so impressive, I checked out the nutrition information available on the website. So, here’s the info:

1 Fiber One “Oats and Chocolate” bar is 40 g

140 calories, 4 g fat (1.5 g saturated fat), 0 mg cholesterol, 80 mg sodium, 29 g carbohydrate, 9 g fiber, 10 g sugar (a little over 2 teaspoons), 2 g protein

So, it does seem to have a good bit of fiber. But, where is the fiber coming from? The first ingredient is chicory root extract. Since, ingredients are required to be listed in the order of their predominance in a product, this means that there is more chicory root extract by weight, than anything else in the product.

So what is chicory root extract? Chicory root extract is also known as inulin. Inulin is known as a prebiotic, meaning it’s good for your digestive system.

There is some question though as to whether inulin offers the same benefits as dietary fiber. Dietary fiber is the kind we get naturally from fruits, vegetables and whole grains, legumes etc. The benefits of fiber are promoting satiety, reducing cholesterol and improving bowel regularity. In fact, the Center for Science in Public Interest (CSPI) has requested that the Dietary Guidelines for Americans be updated to advise consumers to differentiate between these different types of fibers when choosing foods. You can access CSPI’s full comments on several food issues at the following link: Comments regarding Dietary Guidelines for Americans Submitted to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee,.

The next ingredient is chocolate chips with confectioners shellac, then rolled oats (some fiber likely comes from here as well), crisp rice (which includes sugar), barley flakes (similar to oats, these may also contribute some fiber), high maltose corn syrup (aka sugar), high fructose corn syrup (also sugar), sugar, canola oil, honey (some more sugar, albeit natural), glycerin (common food additive, helps food keep its water content), maltodextrins (another food additive made from starch), palm kernel oil (

82% saturated fat), tricalcium phosphate (anticaking agent), soy lecithin (emulsifier), salt, nonfat milk, peanut oil, cocoa, natural flavor, color added, almond flour, peanut flour, sunflower meal, wheat flour, mixed tocopherols (vitamin E).

So, I gather that this bar is tasty on account of the chocolate and sugar, and in terms of calories is definitely moderate. It is probably fine if you are looking for a quick, in between meal snack.

My only concern is that when the Biggest Loser is touting the bar as a good way to increase your daily fiber, and the product is not a good source of whole grains, fruit, vegetables or legumes, this is misleading the public.

Wouldn’t Bob have been better off telling the contestants to eat an apple, banana or slice of whole wheat bread with some peanut butter? The contestants have been grappling with overeating and cravings their whole lives, and to encourage them to eat a chocolately bar to help meet their fiber recommendation seems misinformed in my opinion.

All that being said, I have tried a few high fiber bars and one that has even more fiber than the Fiber One bar is the Flavor & Fiber bars by Gnu Foods. They have a few different flavors, I prefer the Peanut Butter and Orange Cranberry flavors. They have roughly the same calories as the Fiber One bars, and they use a proprietary blend of whole grains to give the bar a whopping 12 grams of fiber! I will caution that this bar also uses the chicory root extract to add to the fiber, but it has less sugar (in the peanut butter flavor) and twice as much protein, so it may also fill you up longer. The rest of the ingredients are easily recognizable, and they don’t use high fructose corn syrup or tropical oils. I have found that I have to drink a lot of water when I eat these bars, otherwise you start to feel dehydrated pretty quickly.

An even better solution is to make your own granola bars. Earlier this week I had attempted to make a granola bar from some stuff that I had on hand, they included the following:

Ingredients

1/2 cup Kashi honey toasted oat cereal

1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together (except for the chips), then added the egg and vanilla, stir until mix is fully coated, then stir in the chips. Pour into an 8″ x 8″baking pan, and bake for about 20-25 minutes. They will be done when the edges start to become golden brown. Once they cool, you can cut them into roughly 12 bars.

I liked these a lot, though I think they probably could have used a little oil to make them less dry. By the second day, they seemed even more moist though. I will play around with the proportions next time, and try some other whole grains and/or use peanut butter and see what happens. The nice thing about making your own bars is that you can control what you are putting into it, and the nutrition you will get out of it.

Bottom Line:

The Fiber One bars do have a lot of fiber, but, the jury is not out on whether this type of fiber can offer the same health benefits as dietary fiber.

Your best bet is to eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. If bars offer you convenience in a hectic lifestyle, there are some more healthful options or try to make your own.

Unfortunately for Mandi, who really liked the Fiber One bars, she was the contestant who was eliminated this week. I’m sure it was just a coincidence that it was on the same episode that Bob introduced the Fiber One bars…or was it?
