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!

2. Skinny Shrimp Pad Thai with PB2

PB2 is simply a brand of powdered peanut butter, and arguably the one that brought powdered peanut butter into the mainstream. Originally sold as a protein source in health food stores, it’s now available due to popular demand. Recipes like this make it entirely worthy of the buzz.

Overnight Oats (ONO) are exactly what they sound like. Oats, that soften and “cook” overnight, simply in the fridge. They absorb the liquids and flavors and are ready for you to enjoy the next morning. It’s life hacks like this that help us get out the door without just grabbing the loaf of bread and shoving it in our face as we drive into work. Or
