Have you ever noticed that powdered version of peanut butter on the shelf at the grocery store and wondered what all the hype is about? Wonder no more!

Info, tips and ideas

I was so curious when I first stumbled upon powdered peanut butter, but I wasn't sure what to expect. Being a true peanut butter addict, I knew this was coming home with me no matter what. Here's how to use this powdery version of peanut butter along with some tips and recipes.

The ingredients: Roasted peanuts, sugar and salt. (This product is vegan and vegetarian-friendly, and dairy and gluten-free.)

The look: It resembles peanut flour. The texture is very, very fine and very smooth.

The taste: The flavor of powdered peanut butter is milder than real peanut butter. You still get that great peanut flavor but with a lighter flavor, though it is still very satisfying and very good.

How to use: Per the directions on the package, you mix 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter with 1 tablespoon of liquid. I tried water, and I also tried mixing it with almond milk. Both were delicious. Once prepared this looks just like real peanut butter, and it can be used just as regular peanut butter would be used.

Some of the ways I used it:

  • A spread for sliced apples
  • Spread on toast
  • Stuffed inside fresh bread with fresh strawberry jam
  • A big spoonful on homemade waffles
  • Added to oatmeal

There are two things that I really love about powdered peanut butter. First, it blends easily into other recipes and even smoothies. Second, its nutritional value. If you are a true peanut butter addict like I am, you know that eating spoonfuls can be very high in calories and also in fat. Check out this side by side comparison of my favorite peanut butter versus powdered peanut butter

Real peanut butter:

  • Serving size: 2 tablespoons
  • Calories per serving: 190 calories
  • Grams of sugar per serving: 8 grams
  • Grams of fat per serving: 14 grams
  • Grams of protein per serving: 6 grams

Powdered peanut butter:

  • Serving size: 2 tablespoons
  • Calories per serving: 45 calories
  • Grams of sugar per serving: 1 gram
  • Grams of fat per serving: 1.5 grams
  • Grams of protein per serving: 5 grams

The powdered version of peanut butter has a significant difference in nutritional value compared with real peanut butter. I will still enjoy eating both regular peanut butter and the powdered version, but if you are watching fat, calories, sugar, etc., this is a wonderful substitute to have on hand.

If you are ready to try it, here are a few recipes that incorporate powdered peanut butter.
