I’ve said it before, but, here in our family, we love peanut butter. We like it all kinds of ways too – creamy, crunchy, with peanuts, with cashews, hazelnut and chocolate, and now even powdered.


  We’ve recently discovered PB2. It comes from a company named ‘Bell Plantation‘.

This stuff is so yummy. It’s also a lot healthier than regular peanut butter because 85-percent of the fat calories have been removed when they pull out the oil and dehydrate it into a powder. It’s preservative free, all-natural, and has no artificial sweeteners. It comes in plain or chocolate.

P1010251  It’s very user friendly – the ratio is 2-1. Two tablespoons of PB2 powder to one tablespoon of water. Mix well and depending on the consistency wanted add more water for a creamier version (less water for a thicker version). This peanut butter really doesn’t taste like the processed stuff. I tastes more like natural peanuts.

P1010252 To give you any idea of how much peanut butter mixes up, this is half of a bagel with a thick layer of peanut butter and there was still quite a bit left in the little bowl.

I will admit this product does cost a bit more than a traditional peanut butter, but with a longer shelf life I’d say it’s worth the difference. It’s also a good alternative to regular peanut butter for those who like to keep an emergency disaster kit.

I can’t wait for a ‘free’ Saturday to make up a batch of peanut butter chocolate brownies….




I'm a wife and Mom. I love baking, crafting, scrap booking, and reading for fun. I work full-time outside of the home and I have one adult son who has high functioning Autism. My husband and I have been married for over 25 years and I still love him as much today as I did the day we were married.
