I used to be a peanutbutter-holic…and yes I still am. after only eating peanut butter and bananas last year and nearly blowing up 30 lbs in a few months, I needed to re-evaluate what the heck I was doing!!
Although there are so many different and delicious companies out there that sell peanut butter and PB like alternatives (PBco, nuts-n-more, buff bake, Justin’s Almond butter, P28), I do enjoy the powdered peanut butter when I’m on prep and watching my fat intake (or just when I’m feeling that peanut butter should be in every meal!!! ) One of my favorites (and cheaper ones) is PurePB + by Crazy Richards. I love a lot of their peanut butter products, so I was really hoping that their powdered peanut butter would be delicious as well.
And yes…yes it was.
Here are some of the benefits from this powdered protein:
No added salt or sugar
6 grams of protein/serving
No GMO’s and gluten free
High quality, great tasting U.S. peanuts
Less fat & calories than traditional peanut butter
Decaffeinated Green Tea Extract
Natural Astaxanthin B Vitamins
What are some of MY favorite ways to use powdered PB?
- in my oatmeal
- in my protein shakes
- on toast with chia seeds + banana
- paired with an apple/pretzels
- substituting in recipes, such as the one below!

Here are some other peanut butter spreads that I find delicious. No, these aren’t all “diet” foods, but everything in moderation is a-okay
