I just discovered PBFit and I am so seriously excited about it! It’s a peanut butter alternative that really isn’t an alternative because it IS STILL peanut butter. It’s made from gently roasted peanuts, but most of the oil has been extracted. With a little salt and some coconut palm sugar, PBFit is a low fat, low calorie peanut butter powder that tastes exactly like it should – like peanut butter.
You reconstitute it with water, which cuts the calories down by 130 per serving. That’s huge! If you’re counting calories, peanut butter is usually not a great choice at 180 calories per 2 tablespoons. But peanut butter is such a comforting, familiar, and amazing flavor, that you just have to have it sometimes. PBFit has only 50 calories per 2 tablespoons, making it a definite can-have when you’re counting those calories.
There are so many ways you can use PBFit. Really, you can use it anywhere you’d use regular peanut butter. You can reconstitute it for a pb&j sandwich, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter on apple slices or celery…you name it. It’ll work.
You can also use it in its powdered form when making protein or breakfast shakes. I used it as a powder when I made these power balls and it was amazing! (The ones in the middle are coated in PBFit.)
I wouldn’t recommend eating the straight powder, though. Trust me. That’s the first thing I did when I opened my jar. It certainly doesn’t taste bad, but boy, was it DRY. Haha.
To reconstitute it, mix 2 tablespoons of PBFit with 2-3 teaspoons of water. Mix it together and eat it however you desire.
