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?
