Do you love peanut butter? I do. I can literally take a spoonful out of the jar and eat it that way. I also enjoy it wrapped in chocolate (Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups!).
Peanut butter is a stable in our pantry. It keeps well and it goes great with things like crackers, toast and of course the classic PB & J sandwich. Mmm… I think I’ll make one after I finish this post.
The downside to peanut butter is that it does contain a lot of fat. I’m sure you’ve seen the oil that develops on the peanut butter. It’s gross! Not all peanut butters are oily, but some certainly are.
Imagine if you can enjoy peanut butter that contains a whopping 87% fat than traditional peanut butter, and 1/3 of the calories? You can with PBfit.
PBfit is peanut powder. The mix also contains some coconut palm sugar, and a pinch of salt. It’s easy to make and enjoy. Simply take 2 tablespoons of PBfit and mix it with 1 1/2 tablespoons of water (you can add more or less depending on your preference). That’s it! That is all you need to do to have creamy, yummy peanut butter.
I know that is sounds a bit odd, but trust me, once it’s mixed it resembles traditional peanut butter. It’s not bad either. I’m a bit picky with peanut butter, and I prefer chunky brands, but PBfit was not bad at all.
If you like to add peanut butter to smoothies, this would be great for you. It mixes very well.
Let me say it again – this IS peanut butter. The process that the brand uses to make it reduces the fat and calories compared to traditional (greasy) peanut butters. It’s made with peanut flour, coconut palm sugar and salt. The peanut flour is the end product they create out of peanuts. You can read how they make it on the PBfit website.
PBfit also has protein, which we all need to stay healthy.
In addition to their original PBfit, the brand also has organic varieties including a spread, almond spread and a sugar free variety.
New to the PBfit line up is PBfit Chocolate. Yes… peanut butter with chocolate! Seeing as how I love Reece’s Peanut Butter cups (I could live off of them!), I was interested in trying out the PBfit Chocolate version.
This PBfit is made the same way as the original PBfit (mixed with water). Once mixed it looks like a chocolate spread. It reminds me of a “thinner” version of Nutella.
I’ve tried the PBfit Chocolate and it’s not bad. It’s not exactly a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup (of course), but it’s definitely chocolate and peanut butter. Initially I wasn’t keen on the taste, but the most I tried it, the more I started to like it.
You can use this the same way you use the other mix. You can use this on toast, bread, crackers, cookies… there are many ways you can use this. You can also use this in your smoothie mixes.
I think this would taste AWESOME on graham crackers. Maybe with a touch of a marshmallow spread too. You can make a S’more!
PBfit Chocolate has 70 calories, 2 grams of fat and 5 carbs for every 2 tablespoons. Compared to the aforementioned hazelnut spread which contains 188 calories, 11 grams of fat and a whopping 23 carbs. That is a HUGE difference.
You can definetly give into your cravings without feeling guilty about it. You can literally just lick the spoon too!
