Have you tried Peanut Butter Powder?
I LOVE peanut butter and will put it on anything I possibly can, so why would I want it in powdered form? Well, I tried it and loved it! As you can see in the image, my container is empty and I’m about to pick up another one. You can find it here on amazon.
The benefit of powdered peanut butter is the reduced calorie and fat content. The peanuts are pressed to remove the fat and oil. Sounds amazing right? 2 tablespoons of regular peanut butter contains about 190 calories, 8 grams of protein and 16 grams of fat. 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder contains 45 calories, 5 grams of protein and only 1.5 grams of fat.
At first I thought this would only be useful for baking, smoothies, or oatmeal. BUT, if you mix the powder with a bit of water (1 tablespoon of water to 1 tablespoon of peanut butter powder) you get a similar consistency to regular peanut butter and can use it on toast, with apples or however you usually eat peanut butter. Personally, I preferred it in my overnight oats and in smoothies.
I am definitely a fan and will be using this going forward!
Just in case you were wondering how I made my overnight oats, here is the recipe!
- ½ cup old fashioned oatmeal
- ½ cup almond milk
- 1 Tbs ground flax seeds
- 1 Tbs chia seeds
- 1 Tsp maca root powder
- 1 Tsp baobab powder
- 1 Tbs honey
- 1 Tbs peanut butter powder
Put all ingredients into a mason jar or any air tight container, mix well or give it a shake. Leave it in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to eat it the next day, add your choice of toppings and enjoy!
