Tru-Nut Powdered Peanut Butter

We all know that I love peanut butter.  It’s pretty much a guarantee that there will always be a jar of PB in my house.  So when the team at Tru-Nut reached out and offered to send a sample of their powdered peanut butter, I jumped at the chance.

Tru-Nut Powdered Peanut ButterI’ve used powdered peanut butter in the past, but what attracted me to Tru-Nut’s powdered peanut butter was the fact that it was all-natural, GMO-free and very low in sugar.  Plus, powdered peanut butter is lower in calories and fat than traditional PB.

Crunch Time before I grab the powdered stuff.

That being said, powdered peanut butter is a great vehicle for adding a nice peanut flavor to baked goods, and is perfect for making a peanut sauce, which is what I did with Tru-Nut’s powdered peanut butter.

Tru-Nut Powdered PB HoneyThe Englishman and I eat stir fry pretty often, so I decided to make a peanut sauce that can be mixed with noodles or veggies.  The peanut sauce is ridiculously easy to make and is much healthier than buying a pre-made sauce at the store.

This recipe does call for soy sauce, but if you are soy-free like I am, you can use coconut aminos
instead!  I discovered coconut aminos last year and it’s a great soy substitute.

Thanks Tru-Nut for sending me your powdered peanut butter!  I’ll have to try the chocolate flavor next!

    I remember trying PB2 a while ago, but honestly I wasn’t a fan. I agree that it’s great mixed into things but not a perfect substitute. Not to mention you miss out on all the healthy fats!

      Totally agree on the healthy fats – when I want PB, I go for the real deal. I do like the powdered stuff as a “flavor enhancer” but not for an actual 1:1 sub. Maybe sometime I should bake with actual PB and powdered PB for extra peanut butter flavor.
