By eating a reasonable quantity, this dish is very healthy and dietetic and in addition it is very tasty! It is perfect if you prepare it as part of a diet or just for your pleasure! Be not mistaken, unlike what we may think, peanut butter is excellent for your health! Especially if it’s homemade, like in this recipe.
