Nutz About Peanut Butter!

20160421_233033705_iOSI 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 bakeJustin’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!
