How healthy is peanut butter powder?
You have probably seen it in your local supermarket a few times. Peanut butter powder is a new spin on classic peanut butter. But how healthy is peanut butter powder? And most importantly, how do you eat peanut butter powder?
Today I will share my favorite peanut butter powder recipe sponsored by PBfit and explain when you should rather have the peanut butter powder instead of classic peanut butter.

Here’s the nutritional breakdown for a standard two-tablespoon serving of powdered peanut butter. While the protein counts, as well as the sugars and fiber, are very similar, the amount of fat is pretty different. Powdered peanut butter has 85 percent less fat than its regular peanut butter counterpart. So if you want to cut calories, go with the powder.

Easy to use. Incredibly delicious.
Especially while I’m traveling, I always realize how easy to use peanut butter powder really is. I mix it into anything from my overnight oats, to my favorite smoothie to Thai food. If you add water to it, you’ll get regular peanut butter as well. The taste and texture are just incredible.
