Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope that everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather!  The newest Picky Girl adventure was powdered peanut butter.  It seems to be one of the latest trends and I figured it was time for me to try it.  I used PB2, but there are a lot of other kinds.  I haven’t heard much about it and wanted to see if it was worth the purchase.  Looking at the ingredients though it is mostly made out of peanuts so I think that it is pretty good, especially if you want to add a little protein to some dishes without the fat.  I was surprised that it only has 4 grams of protein in it, I thought that it would have more but that is still a nice amount.  I’m not sure what else it would work in, I will have to experiment and let you know!  My first experiment with it was with muffins and they turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself!

 

1 mashed ripe banana
1 egg beaten
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup oatmeal
3 Tablespoons chocolate flavored powdered peanut butter

 

1.  Lightly grease a 6 cup muffin tin.

2.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

3.  Mix mashed banana, oil & vanilla.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir until combined.  Divide batter among muffin cups.  Bake 15-20 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

4.  Enjoy 🙂
