As a huge peanut butter lover, I was so excited to discover that powdered peanut butter exists. Basically, powdered peanut butter is the same as regular peanut butter but contains far less calories, fats, and oils. I discovered powdered peanut butter at a time where I wanted to enjoy one of my favorite foods while watching what I ate. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with peanut butter. I just wanted something a bit lighter. So, here's how to use powdered peanut butter.


A huge reason I love powdered peanut butter is because it comes in multiple flavors. My personal favorite brand is Bell Plantation's PB2. They sell flavors such as regular, chocolate, and vanilla. The first thing to do is measure out two tablespoons of your desired powdered peanut butter into a small mixing bowl.

Add Water

Depending on your desired texture, add as much or as little water as you'd like to create a creamy and rich peanut butter. For a runnier peanut butter, use one tablespoon of water. Personally, I like thick peanut butter so I use about one teaspoon of water. You then stir it up and you're ready to add your powdered peanut butter to any snack (or just lick the spoon). It's really that easy.


There are endless ways to use your powdered peanut butter. Personally, my favorite is apples with powdered peanut butter or spreading the powdered peanut butter on rice cakes. You could also create a delicious and healthy dessert by drizzling your powdered peanut butter over a banana with some nuts. 

While many prefer to eat regular peanut butter, I am a huge proponent for powdered peanut butter. With less calories and fats, I don't have to worry too much about the serving size. Also, there are so many different ways to use your powdered peanut butter depending on which flavor you're using. As a college student, powdered peanut butter was a go-to snack and lifesaver. Powdered peanut butter is so extremely easy to store in your dorm room without causing a mess and you don't have to worry about fast expiration dates. If you're like me, stock up and you'll have as much powdered peanut butter as you'll need.

So, this was the breakdown on how how to use powdered peanut butter. If you're looking for a healthier option, definitely give powdered peanut butter a try. Spice it up and create your own fun recipes using different flavors and food combinations. PB2 is my healthy obsession and I'm sure you'll love it too.
