I'm so glad my kids can eat peanut butter. It would have been gone from our house without hesitation if they had shown any signs of an allergy, but we're in the clear and my belly is grateful. I absolutely love peanut butter. Any form of it. I eat it daily and it's one of the ten healthy foods I always buy (or make, depending on time). Is peanut butter high in calories? Yes. Is peanut butter bad for me? I don't think so, not when I eat the right amount. For years now, I've been having it on my apples, in my sandwiches, spread across bread and mixed into snacks and bars.
Peanut butter is just...so...good.
So when the opportunity to review Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter came to me, I accepted because #peanutbutter. And yum.
Literally, it's peanut butter in powder form:
That's my favorite way to use powdered peanut butter.
For example, I used it in these peanut butter chocolate chip protein bar bites:
Don't these look good?
Oh, what to name such a tasty creation.
Here's the recipe:
PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP PROTEIN BAR BITES
Source: Based on Blueberry Muffin Granola Bar Bites
• 1-1/2 C oats
• 1/3 C oat flour
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 C crushed almonds
• 1/3 C peanut butter
• 1 scoop vanilla Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter
• 1/2 C chocolate chips
• 1 tsp vanilla
• splash of water
1/2 C honey
Note: For the peanut butter, you can use whatever you have on hand, or you can mix your own with Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter (plain). To make enough for this recipe, I used 8 tbsp of powder and 4 tbsp of water.
1) Throw everything into a bowl and mix it up.
3) Preheat oven to 350F, then make golf balls with the dough.
4) Bake for 15 minutes, then cool.
5) Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
I mean, so easy.
And so good.
