Peanut Butter & Co. recently announced their newest product – Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter! It tastes like peanut butter but with less fat and fewer calories. Powdered peanut butter is not necessarily a new thing. There’s a few existing options for powdered peanut butter out there. I’ve tried a couple. Each manufacturer makes their product slightly different and it varies a bit in taste and texture.
I was excited to find out that Peanut Butter & Co. now offers a line of powdered peanut butters. I’m familiar with their tasty, quality peanut butters and have always enjoyed it as is or used it in a recipe. With powdered peanut butter, there’s even more uses in the kitchen! Powdered peanut butter is very versatile. Simply rehydrate it to your preferred consistency and use it as peanut butter spread. Powdered peanut butter is also great to add into smoothies, sprinkle over things, and there’s ways to use it for cooking and baking.
Powdered peanut butter is also lower in calories from fat. Peanut Butter & Co. takes the peanuts, roasts them, and then presses them to remove most of the fat. What remains in the peanut flour is protein, fiber, and peanut butter taste.
Peanut Butter & Co. adds dried cane syrup and salt to the peanut flour to form the basic powdered peanut butter product. (Most other powdered peanut butter products also add a form of sugar and salt to adjust the peanut flour taste.) A few other simple ingredients are added to create the different flavors. Mighty Nut is available in four flavors: Original, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Flax & Chia. Each serving of Mighty Nut has 85% fewer fat calories than traditional peanut butter, and has 5-6 grams of protein per serving.
So when Peanut Butter & Co. sent me some Mighty Nut peanut butter powder to try, I was thrilled! One of my favorite ways to use powdered peanut butter right now? I stir a spoonful of Mighty Nut Chocolate into my morning oatmeal. It brings a lightly sweet and salty, chocolate and peanut butter taste along with some added protein.
