Things to do with peanut butter powder

We love peanut butter powder! Enjoy our collection of delicious recipes filled with that lovely nutty flavour - without the nut-filled Points.

Powdered peanut butter is  nothing short of genius. With up to 85 percent less fat and way less calories than traditional peanut butter, the powdered equivalent is Smartpoints® friendly and tastes great too!

So what is peanut butter powder exactly, and why is it so low in fat? Peanut butter powder is dry roasted peanuts with the oils pressed out. This is then ground into a powder.

While the protein, fibre and sugar content is similar to traditional peanut butter, the powder boasts 85 percent less fat, making it a great alternative on a healthy living plan.

That's not to say regular peanut butter is bad for you. It's actually rich in healthy unsaturated fats, which help you feel full and may stave off those mid-morning or midnight munchies. However, it's easy to eat in excess, which is where the powdered equivalent comes in. 

Powdered peanut butter provides a great excuse to enjoy that lovely nutty flavour more often, without worrying about the fat content! From breakfast to dessert, it can be used like a spice to add irresistable flavour, and save on calories and SmartPoints®.

If these recipes don't turn you into a powdered peanut butter convert, we don't know what will!
