Around 3 years ago I discovered powdered peanut butter (aka peanut flour). It was a bizarre concept for me at first, but basically – it’s roasted peanuts, dehydrated and ground into powder form. This process removes most of it’s high-fat, high-calorie oils, while leaving the two most important parts of peanuts…taste & protein, while removing approximately 80-90% of the calories, too!
Powdered peanut butter can then be rehydrated in whatever form you choose. Milk, water, yogurt, whatever you find works for you! However, it can also be used as an ingredient. Personally, it’s my favorite thing to add to a chocolate protein shake for a chocolate peanut butter combo I can feel good about.
If you’ve found yourself venturing into the world of powdered peanut butter, but not quite sure what to make with it? We have lined up some recipes just for you to try!
Cheesecake for breakfast, and somehow healthy? This must be a dream…
