Just wondering if anyone has tried it...it's that powdered peanut butter. I ordered some...reason being that I can't have the real deal in my house...peanut butter, almond butter, all nut butters (eh that sounds funny), cashews, almonds, etc...are currently banned from my house...I can't control myself with any of it...way over do it, go over my calories, fat, etc...

I usually cut up and apple, nuke it with some almond butter...dear God is it good....anyway.

This stuff is lower in calories and I thought maybe I can still get my fix when need be...just wondering if anyone has tried it.

I haven't tried it...but I have the same problem with nut butters. I actually make my own instead, and for some reason it makes me control myself.

HR, this is my favorite site for any raw recipes you want to make

http://www.goneraw.com

Here's the recipe for raw nut butters. The equipment you need is a dehydrator, and either a food processor or a blender. And the prep time may take up to 24 hrs.

http://goneraw.com/node/8887

I think the nut powder is lower in calories and fat because there's no oils added.

PB2 is from BellPlantations in Georgia. Its supposed to be 70% less fat than regular peanutbutter. Its awesome in baking recipes and easier for shakes than regular pb without all the damn fat.
