Thread: Any recipes using PB2 powdered peanut butter?

    Any recipes using PB2 powdered peanut butter?

    I thought I saw a thread on this message board using the PB2 powdered peanut butter. I got my order of this product from Bell Plantation but now I can't find the thread. I tried using the search function but nothing came up.

    I would appreciate any help you might be able to offer.

    Thank you.

    Thank you both for your replies.
    The cookie recipe looks like one I will have to try.

    I was wondering how you found the thread that I could not locate?

    Thanks for posting this. I spent $22.00 on 4 (the only way you can buy it is packs of 4) and I do not like it at all. The texture is off. I thought I'd mention this in case others are interested in this products. While a lot of people love it, it still doesn't come close to peanut butter in my opinion. It tastes good and will probably work very well in baking, but the texture is just strange (to me, at least)....so keep that in mind.

    I love this stuff, but I have been known to like some strange things. It took me several tries to finally get the right amount of water to powder. On The Hungry Girl website she gives several recipes using PB2. One is to take a can of pumpkin mixed with a box of brownie mix topped with two tablespoons of
    PB2 and baked.

    I have to say that I am not impressed with it as far as eating it as a spread on toast.

    I do think it has possibilities as a flavoring for baking, smoothies and pudding type recipes.

    Thanks for the tip about Hungry Girl recipes using PB2 I will check it out.

    I have 4 jars of the stuff and need to figure out what I am going to do with it!

    Yeah, that's pretty much my situation. I love that the company is trying to make a lower alternative to peanut butter, but the powdered stuff is just not the same. I tested it on some 5 year olds and both of them, both of whom love peanut butter, thought it was horrible -- though they did have fun mixing in the water.

    I'm glad that other people enjoy it. I wish I did because it's a good protein source.

    A few people on a yahoo message board said adding peanut oil helped, but it kind of defeats the purpose when you have to go add extra oil to it .

    What is the purpose of powdered peanut butter? Please enlighten me. Someone must have had something in mind when they invented it.
    I'm a backpacker so I was thinking of it as maybe saving weight but that's not an issue for most shoppers.

    It would be great for back packing (one of the reasons I bought it, not that you can't use regular PB, but I can just put the powder in a zip lock bag) You just mix with water and you have a lower fat/calorie version of PB. The oils have been pressed out to make it lower in fat (I think it's 2 grams of fat per 2 TBLS) I love it, but I can see some don't, so I guess it's just a matter of personal taste

    Actually the biggest issue with backpacking and peanut butter is that the oil will leak out of any container given changes in temp & pressure. (the only kind I like is natural style peanut butter) so PB needs to be in a screw top container & double bagged besides. Powdered might have a place, depending on taste. I'll watch for it so maybe I can give it a try. Backpacking is not really a place to go to extremes to cut calories so it would need to be pretty comparable to reg PB .
