- Measure out a serving size; add 1 small smashed banana and enjoy with your favorite whole grain crackers.
- Mix peanut butter with raw oats and Splenda for a quick no-bake cookie.
- Another quick no bake peanut butter cookie recipe from Diet Bites is to mix Rice Krispy cereal with the peanut butter and a bit of Splenda. Add a few chopped walnuts or pecans as well as dried cranberries or dark raisins. Yum!

Enjoy with the lighter syrups if you must have syrup. Karo makes a pancake version that's very low in sugar and contains zero sugar substitute. It's an excellent product and can really be a nice treat if you're wanting a bit more sweetness.
