Have you ever seen those memes that say something to the effect of if you don’t like peanut butter then we can’t be friends? Well I love peanut butter and I kinda feel that way. Which is why Fitapproach and Mighty Nut gave me the opportunity to test out the new powdered peanut butter, come up with a recipe and then give away a jar, I was the one jumping up and down in my living room.
I did receive 2 containers of powdered peanut butter and a cool scoop in exchange for my review, recipe and giveaway – as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
So what is powdered peanut butter and how is it different from the regular stuff?
At Mighty Nut (from the bottle) they’ve taken quality USA grown peanuts, roasted them and pressed them to remove most of the fat. What remains is protein, fiber and delicious peanut buttery taste.
There are 4 flavors of Mighty Nut, Original, Vanilla, Chocolate and Flax & Chia. None of them have more than 1.5g of fat, which is 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter. The original and vanilla both have 6g of Protein while the chocolate and flax & chia both have 5g of Protein. The powder can be rehydrated by adding water and can be used for shakes, as spreads or for baking.
I’m pretty picky about my peanut butter, and I’ve tried powdered peanut butter before and wasn’t super impressed. I have to say though, that Mighty Nut is really tasty. I’m not sure what they’ve done to make it different but it’s really good.
If you know me IRL, you would know that I know how to cook, but I don’t do it very often. I do however love to bake. I used to make cookie cakes for holidays and for my high school graduation I made them for my own party and for a bunch of my friends as well. But here’s the caveat or the burnt toast moment, I am not very good at baking without a recipe, I’ve made my share mistakes, like the 2 tier cake that never rose, not sure what happened there so I like to have a recipe and more specifically a photo so I know if what I’ve made is right lol.
In honor of our honeymoon in Italy and my love of sweets, I decided to make a Peanut Butter & Nutella muffin. I found a peanut butter muffin recipe on the Real Simple website which was by Richard B. Stolley, adapted from Stella Stolley’s Recipe Box and then adapted to become my own.
Unfortunately, the muffins were a bit dry and I didn’t put enough peanut butter powder so they weren’t perfect. So I went back to the drawing board and decided to just make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I got a bag of Nestle chocolate chips and added about 3/4 cup of the Mighty Night Peanut Butter powder. The batter tasted soooo peanut buttery and yummy. But when I baked the cookies, you couldn’t taste the peanut butter.
So third times the charm right? I decided to keep it super simple and just made Peanut Butter & Apple Overnight Oats. Which was awesome and super peanut buttery.
1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 c milk (normally I would use Silk soymilk but I was out and didn’t want to buy a big container since I was leaving in 2 days :))
1/2 small Honeycrisp apple chopped
2 scoops Mighty Nut Peanut Butter Powder
I layered everything in a mason jar and then mixed it up and put it in the fridge overnight.
The next day, I had a super yummy and super peanut buttery treat.
Now, for the fun part…Time for a giveaway! One winner (if you have already won another sweatpink ambassador’s giveaway, you aren’t eligible unfortunately) will win 1 container of Mighty Nut Peanut Butter powder in your choice of flavor and a logoed scoop.
