A few weeks ago, my daughter did a guest post for me about peanut butter powder. It was a thought provoking post for me and I have come up with a lot of ideas where this product could really be useful. The other day, I was at our local Fry's grocery store where I found Jiff Peanut Butter Powder! I decided to give it a try because it is 85% less fat and full of protein! It is also very accessible for the regular home shopper.
Back when I was in college, my friend and roommate, Debbie VanWagenen, gave me a recipe for peanut butter cups. I have made it many times for my kids over the years, especially during the summer when I don't want to bake. They are delicious, but also full of fat! They have a cup of butter and all of that peanut butter and not to mention the chocolate chips melted on top. So, I decided it would be great to make them with a lot less fat and maybe we wouldn't have to feel quite so guilty about eating them as an occasional treat. For some reason, I couldn't find Debbie's recipe in my stash! But, here is what seems like a similar one, only I added reconstituted Peanut Butter Powder instead of the regular peanut butter.
While I realize the butter and the chocolate keep these bars from being really low in fat, the peanut butter powder does save on a lot of the fat calories. The flavor met with my families approval! I can hardly wait far the weather to get cooler so I can bake again and use this product in a lot of other applications I have up my sleeve! In the meantime, enjoy these no-bake tidbits!
