Intrigued by powdered peanut butter? Let’s learn why powdered peanut butter is #RDapproved making this a Supermarket RD’s Pick.
Do you love peanut butter as much as I do? Even though regular peanut butter is a good-for-you choice and a healthy fat, those calories can really add up if you are a peanut butter lover like myself. You can find me adding peanut butter to smoothies, making pb&js, in mixed in oatmeal or yogurt, with apple slices, on bananas, or simply straight of of the jar.
Powdered peanut butter has been one of those supermarket finds that continues to happily feed my peanut butter obsession. It still packs in 6 grams of protein per serving with less fat!
Powdered peanut butter is made by simply roasting peanuts then are pressed to remove the oil. You get the full delicious peanut taste, with 90% less far and more than 70% fewer calories than regular peanut butter. I really like Crazy Richard’s Pure PB, because it is made with no salt and no sugar added.
You could rehydrate it and make it to a paste, but to be honest it is not creamy and thick like regular peanut butter. I more use powdered peanut butter when it is used IN a recipe like in smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, and even for baked good recipes. Also, my newest “snack hack” is to slice an apple and sprinkle powdered peanut butter on top. The powdered pb sticks to the moisture of the sliced apple.
So, pretty much I stick to traditional natural peanut butter for my pb&js but stick to powdered peanut butter for mostly everything else!
Have you tried powdered peanut butter before?

I discovered powdered PB a while ago – what a great invention! I love using it in recipes for the flavor but not all of the calories.
yes definitely!!! My favorite is to add it to smoothies!
This stuff is my life! Not only does Crazy Richards make fantastic PB, but I love that they came out with peanut flour too! So much cheaper than my usual peanut flour I buy!
I keep seeing powdered peanut butter everywhere but have yet to try it! I’ve heard they’re really good in smoothies… will have to check it out!
definitely try it in a smoothie! My fav combo is: banana, peanut butter powder, chia, almond milk and spinach!!
Hi there ! I saw your interview on Health Living Blogs! I love to read about people passionate about what they are doing! Great for you! I have tried a few powdered peanut butters before but I like the fact this one has no added sugars or salt. Good idea to use in recipes. Thanks for posting!
Hi Lori! Thanks for stopping by!
yes, definitely a bonus that there is no sugar or salt added!
Hey there Julie! Just found your blog through the Healthy Living Blogs website feature. I like powdered peanut butter, I became a fan this past year. At first I was skeptical about the ingredients and how it was made, but I’ve come to find out it’s about checking the labels (as usual) and you can still find a great quality and healthy product. I enjoy mine in oatmeal especially!
Hi Kaylin! Thanks for stopping by! It’s always about reading those labels! Yes, in oatmeal is delish!
