I just discovered PB Fit and I am over the moon in love! Anyone on a low fat diet or cutting for a bodybuilding contest whatever division you are in knows how hard it is to be able to enjoy copious amounts of things like peanut butter, dark chocolate, butter and other high fat foods during their contest prep or on their low-fat diet. PB Fit is pretty much like finding gold… During my current cut phase, 5 weeks out to a contest for a figure and bikini competition, I actually got to eat ants on a log, PB Fit and Jelly sandwich and a PB Fit chocolate smoothie. OMG…. Most of the time I just eat it with a spoon! Just add water! It mixes well, tastes great and is just plain super fantastic! PB2 is also another peanut butter powder that is similar.
Anywhere a recipe calls for regular peanut butter, just make the peanut butter powder to its creamy form by adding water and mixing, then use in the desired recipe. You can use it in the powdered form when making smoothies, ice cream, in hot cocoa and so on.
In a 2 tbsp serving, there is 1.5g fat, 4 carbs and 5g protein.
I bought mine at Sam’s Club. Enjoy!
1) Peanut butter protein shake:
Add a spoonful of PB Fit powder to your normal protein shake for extra protein and flavor.
My fav is 36g of chocolate protein, 80g of frozen bananas, 4 Tbsp PB Fit and 6-8oz of liquid (water, almond milk etc).
2) Peanut butter powder pancakes or waffles:
Do 1 of 2 things: either add two teaspoons of PB Fit powder to your pancake or waffle batter for a roasted peanut taste, or make up some PB Fit to its creamy form by just adding water and putting it on top. Try these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Waffles that use PB powder!
3) No bake oaty bites:
These are perfect for an afternoon snack. Use PB Fit instead of regular peanut butter in this recipe: Oaty Bites
4) Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches:
Totally classic, I actually grill my PB & J like you would a grilled cheese. I just love that warm goey PB Fit and jelly! Another lowfat option for that grilled PB & J is to use I Can’t Believe its Not Butter Light on the outsides of the bread when you are frying it up!
5) Thai peanut sauce:
One of my favorite things to eat over chicken, rice and peppers… Thai peanut sauce made with PB Fit. Use light coconut milk (my fav is from Trader Joes) for a lower fat option. See recipe here.
6) Peanut butter curry:
Once again, another fav of mine to put over chicken, potatoes, red peppers and carrots! Again, use light coconut milk for a lower fat option and xylitol in place of the sugar. See recipe here.
7) Peanut butter cookies:
Ummm.. YUM! Need I say more? Now, when you make a recipe like this that uses a lot of peanut butter, it will have a flavor difference using PBfit. Use half real peanut butter, half PBfit. Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
or My fav PB cookie recipe:
They will taste a tad different from the original recipe. Use half real PB, half PBfit. Make sure the PB is the correct consistency before adding it to the recipe.
8) Healthy peanut butter banana ice cream:
Put coconut milk, frozen bananas and PB Fit into a food processor. Use light coconut milk for less fat. YUM! Quick and easy! My kids love this with mini chocolate chips. Recipe Here.
9) Chocolate Peanut butter cups:
10) Peanut butter swirled brownies:
Make a batch of brownie batter, pour it into the greased pan, and then use a knife to swirl two made up tablespoons of PB Fit through the batter. Bake as directed. OR, for the ultimate low fat brownies, get Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Brownie Mix , make the batter and swirl in PB Fit!
….or try these bars below! They use applesauce so once you use PB Fit, they will be lowfat!!! Again, these will have a flavor difference using PB Fit compared to the original recipe, but I thought they were pretty tasty while desperate in cut phase. You can also do half real PB + 1/2 PB Fit. You may need to bake theses 10 minutes longer if you substitute peanut butter powder. See Recipe Here.
11) Homemade granola bars:
Give yourself a high energy start to your workout or day with homemade no bake granola bars. Add PB Fit in place of regular PB. They are to die for!
Or try your hand at homemade Larabars…. use PB Fit to make this low fat! Make sure to keep the PB Fit consistency thick when making the PBfit into a paste before adding it to the recipe. See Recipe here.
12) Peanut butter powder hot chocolate:
Add a teaspoon (more or less to taste) of powdered PB Fit to a mug of hot chocolate.
13) Peanut butter popcorn:
Drizzle a little warm PB Fit peanut butter + butter over a batch of popped popcorn. Adjust the consistency of the PB Fit with liquid.
14) Eaten by the spoonful:
One of my favorite ways to enjoy PB Fit…. Make some PB Fit and just eat it! Yum!
15) Peanut butter cocoa chili:
A great savory option for any meal. Make this recipe with PB Fit along with chicken or ground turkey for a real low fat recipe. Recipe here.
16) Hiking snack:
Put some PB Fit powder in a zip-top plastic bag. When you are ready to eat it on your hike, pour a few drops of water into your bag at a time and squish it all together until you like the consistency. Cut off a corner and squeeze it into your mouth or onto crackers.
17) Dusted over cereal:
Pick your favorite cereal and sprinkle a teaspoon of PB Fit powder over it.
18) Spread on apples or banana’s
19) Chocolate peanut butter chia pudding:

21) Peanut butter yogurt:
Mix PB Fit powder into plain or vanilla yogurt. Add honey for sweetness if desired.
22) Peanut butter oatmeal:
Add a tablespoon of PB Fit to your bowl of oatmeal. It’s also tasty when paired with applesauce. My fav thing to do during contest prep is to add walden farms maple syrup on top.
23) Picnic dippers:
Fruit, crackers, and even vegetables are delicious dipped in PBfit on a picnic.
24) Peanut butter fruit pops:
Blend together bananas, PBfit, milk (almond milk or coconut milk), and any other ingredients you want; freeze mixture in popsicle molds. See recipe here.
