Stuff You Gotta Try at Market Street: PB2



Okay, I know PB2 has been around for awhile but I'm still surprised at the number of people who ask me about it on our tours (West Texas tours - DFW Tours). So we wanted to shine a little spot light on this powdered peanut product.

What is PB2?
  •  PB2 is a powdered peanut butter. It is made by removing the natural oils from the peanut and then dehydrating the remains The results in a powder in which 90% of the fat is removed from the peanut.
Why would I want powdered peanut butter over regular peanut butter?
  • Powdered peanut butter is portable and it has less fat. Remember, though, that most of the fat removed is the healthy fat.

How do you use PB2?
  • Mix powdered peanut butter into your milk and non-dairy beverages for a yummy treat.
  • Mix into your favorite muffin recipes.
  • Mix into smoothies.
  • Mix into cookies
  • Mix into yogurt
  • Mix into pancakes
  • Mix into puddings
  • Mix into your overnight oatmeal
A couple of weeks ago we shared with you some oatmeal tips and how to make overnight oatmeal. Here's a simple recipe using PB2 in an overnight oatmeal in a mason jar.

Chocolate PB2 and Banana Overnight Oatmeal



Ingredients:
1/3 cup Steel Cut Oats
1/3 cup Old Fashioned Oats
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed (not shown below)
2 scoops (about 1/4 cup) protein powder - I really like Tera's protein powder right now
2 tablespoons Chocolate PB2
1 cup almond milk (or dairy/non-dairy beverage of choice)
1 banana
1 tablespoon chocolate chips (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped pecans (optional)
2 Mason jars with lids


Instructions:

1. Combine both kinds of oats with flaxseed (if you are using it).



2. Add almond milk, PB2 and protein powder. Stir until all the powders have dissolved.


3. Next, use half of the oat mixture to fill the bottoms of both Mason jars. Add 1/2 sliced banana to each and then cover with the remaining oat mixture.

4. For fun, top with 1/2 tablespoon of chocolate chips and almonds in each jar.

5. Seal the jars with their lids and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, preferably overnight. You can make these earlier in the week and have them ready for breakfast for up to 4 days - such a time saver!
