Powdered Peanut Butter: A Review & Taste Test.

Over time, I’ve received a lot of comments, emails, and questions about my self-proclaimed peanut butter addiction.  Typically they sound something like “why don’t you eat fancy nut butters like all of the other bloggers?”

IMG_8114 (640x478)

I have touched on this in a previous post, but for as good as I am about intuitive and healthy eating, portions remain an area of weakness.  I LOVE to eat, and when I eat, I eat a lot.  So I do my best to find food that is high in nutrition and vitamins, but lower in calories.  A recommended portion of typical nut butters is 2 tablespoons, which (depending on the nut and brand) averages about 190 calories and 16 grams of fat.  While I do agree that they are delicious, to me they just aren’t worth the high calories and fat for such a teeny tiny amount.

A few years ago, back when I was initially losing weight, I knew I needed to kick my daily peanut butter habit.  My mother in law introduced me to the amazing world of powdered peanut butters – PB2 being my product of choice.  Even though I’m no longer in weight loss mode, I’ve chosen to just stick with the powdered stuff and not tempt myself with gooey jars of the real thing. 

IMG_1067 (479x640)

Before I get into the other products and brands that are available, let’s get a few questions out of the way…

What the heck IS PB2?

It is powdered peanut butter, which is not nearly as strange as it may sound.  To make it, the manufacturers squeeze the oil out of roasted peanuts, and what remains is the powdered peanut butter – all natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. When you’re ready to eat it, you mix a bit of the powder with a little bit of water, and you get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter, but with 85% less fat calories.

IMG_1071 (640x480)

But does it really taste like peanut butter?

If you want my honest answer, NO.  It does not taste exactly like peanut butter.  Because if it that was possible, I’m sure the peanut butter makers would love to market their product as being much lower in fat!  BUT – it definitely tastes close enough (in my opinion) to be a more than acceptable substitute.  And because you are mixing the product yourself, you can control the consistency and texture based on your personal preference.  For example, I make it runnier for my oatmeal because I like it to be gooey.  But I make it thick and spreadable for a sandwich, because I don’t want it to drip.

Isn’t eating powdered peanut butter a little crazy?

I guess that’s up to you.  For me, I prefer it.  Since making it requires a little prep work, I can’t just stick my spoon the jar and mindlessly plunge 200 calories down my throat before I even realize what is happening.  And since it is lower in calories, I can enjoy a much bigger blob of PB on my oatmeal and sandwiches, guilt free.  Is that to say that regular nut butters are bad and should be avoided?  Absolutely not.  I love having them at friends houses and on special occasions.  But as a regular daily part of my diet, I prefer the powdered peanut butter for now.

Now obviously I have loved PB2 for years (and this post is totally unsolicited, FYI), but recently I’ve noticed a few competitors popping up on the shelves.

IMG_1066 (640x480)

As a powdered peanut butter connoisseur, I figured it was my duty to do a side by side comparison and taste test for you guys. 

IMG_1073 (640x477)

I knew the FitNutz had been around a while, but I had just started to hear whispers of the newest Peanut Flour from Trader Joe’s.  When I finally saw it hit the shelves in Old Town, my heart skipped a beat. 

IMG_1069 (479x640)

Face-Off Round 1:  Nutrition: PB2 vs. Trader Joe’s

The labels seem misleading at first, because they call for different serving sizes (PB2 – 2 tbsp, TJ’s – 1/4 cup).  But if you cut the TJ’s serving size in half, you see that it’s a pretty clear win.  Two tablespoons of PB2 has 45 calories, 1.5g fat, and 5g protein.  The TJ’s peanut flour has 55 calories, 2g fat, and 8g protein.  Even though the peanut flour has ten more calories than PB2, I think the three extra grams of protein give it the nutritional edge.

IMG_1070 (479x640)

Face-Off Round 2:  Taste and Texture

I took my job of tasting and comparing the three VERY seriously…

IMG_1088 (640x471) IMG_1086 (640x469) IMG_1091 (640x480)

I mixed up 2 tbsp of each powder and tested them all side by side.

IMG_1074 (640x480)

First up – PB2.  Obviously I already knew that I liked this one.  Just a hint of sweetness and salt, and I like how you can make it thick or creamy, depending on how much water you choose to add.  Two big thumbs up.  (Only negative is that you have to order it online.)

IMG_1075 (480x640)

Next in line – FitNutz.  Gag me.  Okay, that might have been a tad dramatic.  But I can’t help it – I just don’t like the stuff.  It’s got some sort of weird bitter taste and not enough sweetness.  Not to mention it is the most expensive of the group ($4.99 for 5 ounces – insanity).

IMG_1078 (479x640)

Last but not least – Trader Joe’s Peanut Flour.  Hold on to your hats – we’ve got a real contender here.  Upon first taste I thought something was really off.  Then I realized it was unsalted, and so I added a small pinch of kosher salt myself.  WOW!  This stuff is good – really good.

IMG_1080 (480x640)

The flavor is delicious (once you add some salt), and the texture is my favorite of the three.  It gets a lot smoother and creamier than the other two, and seems the most similar to regular peanut butter.  And while PB2 costs $3.99 for a 6.5oz jar, this stuff is $3.49 for SIXTEEN ounces!  Friends, that is a difference I can’t ignore. 

IMG_1081 (640x480)

While overall, I think PB2 has the best flavor straight out of the jar, the new Trader Joe’s Peanut Flour has three big things going for it.  It is MUCH less expensive, you don’t have to order it online, and (if needed) you can control the sodium content yourself.

IMG_1096 (640x477)

I’m not sure what I’ll do when I run out of my last jar of PB2.  With the new Peanut Flour available, I’m honestly not sure I’ll reorder it.  Only time, and my credit card statement, will tell.  For now, I have a LOT of leftover peanut butter to eat, blissfully smeared across a few caramel rice cakes…

IMG_1099 (640x479)

So there you have the VERY long-winded explanation for why I don’t eat regular nut butters, and what I use instead.  Hopefully these powdered varieties don’t seem quite so strange or mysterious anymore.

IMG_1102 (479x640)

One thing is for sure – whether is is straight out of the creamy traditional jar, or mixed up from a tub of powder – peanut butter is quite possibly the most delicious food on earth.

IMG_1107 (640x480)

YUM!

Yep, I decided to ditch the PB2 and switch to the TJ’s peanut flour about 2 weeks ago. I love the TJ’s after I figured out I needed to add a bit of salt to it and the texture was better than PB2 even! I like a little bit of sweet in it so I add a pinch of the splenda brown sugar and oh boy…nice! So great you did a post on this!!

omg, LOVE TJ’s peanut flour!!! i was going to post about it this week too! i started adding it to my smoothies in place of rice protein, and it adds SO MUCH MORE FLAVOR!!!! i’ve also used it in my vegan chocolate chip cookies on sunday!

I just saw the TJ’s Peanut flour today! I didn’t buy it… but maybe next time :)

Jen     at 4:49 pm

Waaaaaaaaaaaait. So you just add some water to the peanut flour and you get peanut butter?? I just bought this stuff at TJ’s last week, but have been using it as flour (in things like banana bread, etc).

You’re blowing my mind! Is that how it works??

YESSS!! Go add water to it RIGHT NOW! :)

I just bought the peanut flour on Saturday to use in baking – did not realize it could be used as a peanut butter substitute. Thanks for the heads up. I must try that sometime!

AAH! This could very well change my world. Must go to TJ’s ASAP!

Where does TJ’s stock the Peanut Flour? By the PB or flour….

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

By the FLOUR, which initially threw me off. I almost missed it!

Christina Reply:

Thanks! I’ll try to find it tonight. I’m so excited not to have to order PB2. Both times I went to their site they were out anyway.

[Reply]

Jen     at 4:56 pm

I just bought my first jar of PB2 this weekend. They have it at the grocery store where my parents live. i agree, it doesn’t taste the same, but is a very doable substitute.
I had no idea about TJ’s version – I will for sure be getting that!

Ashley @ Nourishing the Soul     at 4:58 pm

Was going to buy it online and decided to wait until I could get it in person. I’m dying to try it!

Jessica     at 5:03 pm

I use 2 tbs pb in my protein shakes. How would u suggest I sub this out for the tj peanut flour. Do u think I could just add it straight in without pre mixing it? Can’t wait….this is gonna save me a TON of calories and fat!

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

You can use the powder straight, but it’s just a little less powerful than traditional PB, so you might want to add 1/4 cup instead. Still only 100 calories and way less fat. Play around with it til you find the right amount.

[Reply]

Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat     at 5:04 pm

I didn’t realize you could use TJ’s Peanut flour to make peanut butter! I know what I’ll be trying next time I go shopping at Trader Joe’s!

[Reply]

Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen)     at 5:04 pm

Trader Joe’s is just soooo much better! Oh and if you add a little less water and add a little maple syrup…it tastes like peanut butter fudge! I am on my second bag in 3 weeks! I love making waffles with it too! They taste like peanut butter cookies on crack! Ugh…now I need to go and get my peanut flour fix…

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum. I want that right now!! the minutes I finished the post, I ran down the stairs and made another PB rice cake. :)

Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) Reply:

I know…it is crazy good! Honestly, I think I feel better now that I am eating it too. I know it sounds weird, but the amount of protein I eat (since I don’t eat meat) through that peanut flour has really increased how great I feel after working out. I haven’t had ANY muscle soreness since I started eating it…so eat up!

When using the peanut flour, do you use equal parts?

Sarena, I wouldn’t mind trying some peanut butter fudge, Sounds yummy, I wonder if they still powdered peanut butter?

Stacy @ Student of Healthy Living     at 5:05 pm

This sounds fantastic! Thanks for taking one for the team and doing the taste test ;) It’s rather crazy how much lower the calorie count is with peanut flour compared to peanut butter. I wonder how peanut flour would taste in smoothies?

I wonder if you added a little bit of melted dark chocolate, mix it in, would you have something comparable to Dark Chocolate Dreams PB? Now that would be delicious!

This post has really got me thinking, and hungry :)

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

I can assure you that it is deeeelicious in smoothies. :) Good idea on the chocolate!

Kari Reply:

I add 2 tablespoons of Hershey’s cocoa mix to my smoothies and peanut butter but since I found out about the pb flour I’m going to go buy it today at TJ’s. I normally make a lot of smoothie mix up about 32 ounces and add 2 tablespoons of Hershey’s chocolate and peanut butter and taste pretty good. Give it a real nice chocolate flavor. Can’t get over the peanut butter add to my Smoothies rates better in my soy protein drink. Could also add Hershey’s syrup.

Michelle @ IronDivas     at 5:11 pm

Wow, this is amazing to me! I have seen you post about PB2, but I never knew it was powdered peanut butter, I just thought it was a special brand. I am a Trader Joe’s nut, so I WILL be looking for this next trip. Thanks :)

Agreed – it makes me sad that we don’t have a TJ’s or easy access to their branded products in Canada!

I was thinking of checking out Asian grocery stores to see if maybe they sell peanut flour (or a variation of it) there…. *crosses fingers*

I am really really trying to LOVE PB2 instead of JIF Reduced Fat. It is SO hard for me because I’m a PB snob! I love PB, and even though I hate spending the calories nothing compares to the taste. I have 4 containers of the PB2 though, since you buy it online, so I MUST learn to love it:)

[Reply]

Susan     at 5:21 pm

I must go to TJ’s after work to get this!

I wanted to try the PB2, but couldn’t really justify the cost & shipping. Can’t wait to try the TJ’s peanut flour!

[Reply]

Elizabeth     at 5:38 pm

Emily, I have 2 jars of unopened PB2 (one regular, one chocolate) in my pantry. I purchased a 4-pack a while back but have since given up all refined sugar. I will send you these 2 jars — free. I just want someone to use them so they don’t go to waste. Seriously, just email me and tell me how to get them to you. I enjoy your blog so much and I would love to send them to you as a “thank you” (plus, I hate wasting food). So happy to learn about TJ’s brand (looks like no sugar) — happy me!

If you know someone in the military ask them to check the Commissary for you. They sell PB2 at the Commissary for $3.29 a jar. A friend of mine picks me up a few jars at a time when he goes grocery shopping. This is at Ft Jackson, SC but I would imagine they would carry it at other locations as well. I absolutely hate paying shipping if I don’t have to.

Thanks so much for doing the leg work. I have TJs and wasn’t sure if I was missing out by not ordering the PB2. Your experiment saved me the money and the wonder. I like mixing it with pumpkin, oats, & instant butterscotch pudding (I know, NOT healthy at all).

[Reply]

Jessica @ How Sweet     at 6:29 pm

I’ve had PB2 for years (not so much a fan) but just bought the TJ’s stuff over the weekend. My question is – don’t both really JUST contain peanuts (I know PB2 has a little sugar)? If so, how does 2 tablespoons of TJ’s have 3 more grams of protein than PB2? You think just because of the additional ingredients in PB2? Thoughts?

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Good question. Yeah they are just peanuts, so I would guess that the extra protein is coming from a combination of a few higher calories in TJ’s, and like you said, added sugar taking up some of the calories in PB2.

[Reply]

Daniel     at 6:42 pm

I bought this stuff a while back and we have about 6 jars at home at the moment (oops).

I love the stuff but I stopped eating it after learning a bit in my nutrition classes. I love the fact that it’s lower in calories and fat so you can eat a ton of it “guilt free” but there has to be a downside – I’m guessing you lose a lot of the vitamins and minerals (not to mention the phytochemicals!) when the oil is removed due to heat and processing and fat-soluble nutrients.

But I still don’t think it’s as horrible as some other products out there, and I really want to try some of that TJ’s flour now that everyone seems to have had a stab at it. :P Plus I should probably stick to regular homemade PB because I could use the extra goodies in it. ;)

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Yeah you lose some of that, but there are no ADDED chemicals or other ingredients either. It really is very natural – just peanuts, and a little sugar and salt.

[Reply]

Marci     at 6:53 pm

Love how you can demystify foods that we don’t know much about! I have “no peanut butter” days so I won’t overdose on the stuff, so I understand why you want an alternative!

Lee     at 6:58 pm

I bought that peanut flour last weekend but haven’t tried it. Although, I don’t really like PB2, so I’m not sure how much I’ll like the flour as a PB sub.

thanks for this… my very first try was the fitnutz… and, like you, I was unimpressed.

Stephanie     at 7:37 pm

Oh, I am so glad you posted this! I looooove peanut butter (I pretty much have it every day in one form or another), but I couldn’t bring myself to order PB2 online. I’d seen the peanut flour in TJs, but didn’t realize it was basically the same thing as PB2. I am so buying this my next trip to Trader Joes!

[Reply]

Carin     at 7:50 pm

Wow — sometimes it amazes me how much I don’t know! So the TJ’s peanut flour isn’t technically a flour, right? It’s sounding like I can just add water and use it as peanut butter — or I’m guessing I can also use it as a substitute for flour in baking muffins and breads?

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

You can use it for either. But yes, just add water!

My husband thanks you for finding a cheaper alternative for me to try. My mom thanks you too for finding her a salt free nut butter.

Someone should tell TJ’s that there is going to be a run on the peanut flour !

steph @ goeatapeach     at 8:58 pm

i agree with absolutely everything you wrote, i think we are food soul sisters.. i do treat myself to real nut butters every once in awhile, but i just cant control myself!

or recipes when you just want the FLAVOR of pb, but not the calorie bulk, PB2 is key. maybe just smeared on toast the real stuff tastes way better, but in a smoothie? ill take the powdered.

check out my latest post- i use it in a thai-peanut noodle dish that i love!

LindsayH     at 9:08 pm

I think PB2 is so gross….it’s okay mixed in with things like in smoothies, but just on it’s own it practically makes me gag. I think it’s the added sugar that makes it sweet not in a good way. I would love to try the peanut flour but don’t have a TJs. I’ve also heard you can find peanut flour at some ethnic markets.

Thanks for explaining PB2. I had no idea what it was. I think I will try the peanut flour at TJ’s..sounds like it is pretty versatile from reading the other comments. And thanks for putting yourself through the taste test!

[Reply]

Lorie     at 9:16 pm

Thanks Emily! I was just looking into peanut flours the other day because it would 1)be a great alternative to peanut butter and 2)be a great source of protein. Unlike you, apparently, I CAN buy PB2 where I live–but it’s $5 a jar and I know that it is about the same price online for peanut flours, but you get a lot more for the price…too bad the shipping makes the cost increase a lot…

I’m going to look out for a Trader Joe’s nearby though–I NEED to get some of that peanut flour!!

[Reply]

Megan     at 9:18 pm

Thank you for this post! I started avoiding nut butters when I was originally dieting, and like you, I’m not in that mode any longer, but I still find that the jars disappear in my house way too fast once they are open :(

I’m glad to read your perspective and testing and now I’ll willing to take the plunge and try a newer, low calorie version of my fave stuff!

[Reply]

Ariane     at 9:29 pm

Wow, these are amazing! I had no idea there was such a thing as powdered PB. I eat a peanut butter & jelly sandwich every single day for lunch, and it really irks me that the peanut butter is so high in fat. I’ll definitely be hitting up Trader Joe’s this weekend for this great alternative. Thanks!!!

Madelyn     at 9:40 pm

Thank you so much for this post! I’ve been wanting to try PB2 for awhile, but I just kept thinking about how much easier and cheaper it was to buy regular nut butter at the store. But seeing as I regularly kill a jar of PB a week, its definitely time to make a change. Thanks to you, now I not only know that I can get some in my own backyard at TJ’s, but its also awesome to boot :) You rock!

Brittany     at 9:49 pm

Ahhh, I love the idea of powdered pb! I agree with you- even though the natural pb’s contain “healthy fats,” 2 Tablespoons comes and go’s veryyyy quickly :)

This is especially cool because so many people not in the blogging world are still using the hydrogenated-style peanut butters…hopefully these powders catch on!!

Thanks for the taste test- I feel much more brave now about picking a jar up

I’m so excited you reviewed the TJ’s peanut flour! I got hooked on PB2 from reading your blog and it’s an expensive habit. I just picked up a bag of TJ’s peanut flour this weekend and was waiting for my last jar of PB2 to run out before I try it.

Earlier this year I was nursing a baby squirrel back to health, and I think he was really devastated when he discovered that peanut butter does not exist in nature. Oops. Poor little guy.

But anyway, great post! I feel informed. We don’t have a microwave, so I could see powdered peanut butter becoming really handy for oatmeal. (Otherwise, you know, it doesn’t spread around at all.)

I didn’t know what the peanut flour was so I totally appreciate this post. I always wanted to try PB2 but the price and online thing turned me off. Peanut flour is definitely on my Trader Joes list now ;-)

I hope there’s not a run on the TJ’s Peanut Flour after this post! I just assumed it was just a different type of baking flour- would never have thought it could be used like PB2.

I’m able to find PB2 in some local health food stores. Its pretty good and convienient to through in my lunch bag. I dip apple slices straight into the jar. :D I wanna try the Trader Joes peanut flour, but we don’t have a Trader Joes! :(

Calories are the one big drawback for me, too, when it comes to peanut butter. The peanut butter usually wins, for me, though. I might grab some powdered when I am home in December and give it a try. If I like the taste, I wouldn’t mind making the switch.

Katie @ Healthy Heddleston     at 11:53 pm

Have you ever tried Better ‘n Peanut Butter? It only has 100 calories for 2 T and 2 grams of fat. Definitely worth a try!! They make regular, low sodium, and a chocolate peanut butter (which isn’t as good .. soo I think I’m gonna try baking them into a cookie hehe!!)

Yeah, I’m not a huge fan. Something about the taste is weird to me – not sure what it is. I like how thick it is though – very similar to regular PB.

Great post! I first saw powdered PB on peanut butter fingers. She used the PB2. I hate ordering food online but I do live by a Trader Joe’s so if I see the peanut flour there next time I go, I will DEFINITELY get it!

Mary Ann     at 2:47 am

Thanks for the comparison Emily! I’m a wee bit embarrassed to admit that I didn’t realize you mixed those up into a spread, I thought you just added the straight powder to smoothies or something. I’ve been thinking about getting some of the TJ’s peanut flour since the last time you mentioned it, so I will definitely have to grab it now!

Divina     at 5:00 am

Emily, amazing review. I have been wanting to try PB2, but couldn’t justify spending so much, or having to order it online. I had never heard of the TJ version until your review and now I think I might stop by TJ before work tomorrow to see if they have it. I’ve been craving peanut butter these days, so this will come in handy as I’m trying to keep the calories low… THANKS again Emily..

I saw PB2 at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati, so I picked it up. The only thing I’ve done with it so far is sprinkled it in my oatmeal. It made me feel kind of ill, though that could have been in part because I didn’t mix it with water first. I’ll have to try it again.

I’m very interested in the TJ’s version though! Might be picking that up on my next shopping trip…

Yeah I have. Something about it is kind of “off” to me, and I’m not a huge fan of the ingredients. The BNP is much thicker and richer – the powdered is much lighter in consistency.

Emily,

First of all, I am loving your blog!

Second – thank you so much for opening the universe of PB2 to me. I live in Canada and never heard of it before reading about this awesome stuff on the Front Burner a couple of months ago. I ordered it immediately at Toronto’s LowCarb Grocery online. It’s very affordable too, especially if combined with other purchases (free shipping!).

I agree with you 100% as to the nut butter taste vs calories. I’ve got half a dozen of fanciest nut butters sitting in my pantry for MONTHS just because I go through them so slowly. PB2 allows to eat MORE and kick in that much-needed extra protein.

I did my own PB2 review on my blog: http://the-fit-gourmet.blogspot.com/2010/08/basket-case.html

2 tbsp powdered to just under 2 tbsp water, for a PB-like consistency. If you add a little more it will be fluffy and a little creamier for something like oatmeal.

As a recent devotee to both PB2 and peanut flour, I have to say that I am so grateful for this review! I often feel guilty that I cannot control myself around the ‘real’ stuff and that I am somehow a lesser person than bloggers who can enjoy teeny-tiny portions of nut butter…but I am a volume eater and it’s wonderful to have a ‘safe’ product around. I have so many problems with bingeing on nut butter in particular that replacements are wonderful for recovery without feeling too deprived…I often get the feeling that people with immense self-control look down on those that rely on things like PB2 as somehow ‘disordered’, so thank you for celebrating the wonders of powdered PB and providing such a comprehensive and insightful review! And also for making me feel a little less loathing of myself :)

Glad to know I’m not missing out on anything with the FitNutz too…I was wondering whether to order some of that but you’ve saved me the money!

Thanks for this! I have the opposite problem from what you have- I don’t love peanut butter. I like the flavor and that it’s a versatile snack food but it tends to sit like a brick in my stomach, so I’m even less likely to want to ingest all those calories on something that makes me feel ill. I’m wondering if making a very thin peanut butter from the TJs flour would sit better in my stomach. It’s worth a try now that I know it’s so affordable.

Ok so I guess I have been living under a rock bc I have never heard of powdered peanut butter. I am SO excited bc I too love peanut butter and have to look away when I pass it in the grocery. No Trader Joe’s where I live so I’ll be ordering the PB2 online for now. THANK YOU!

I’ve always avoided buying the peanut flours becuase I thought it meant I was trying to restrict calories again…I want my days of ED to be over and I am NOT scared of the fat or calories in the real thing!
However now that you mention the benefits of do-it-yourself consistency and salt content (in addition to all the recipes floating around), TJ’s Peanut Flour may have a new customer!

Wow! I have never heard of powdered peanut butter before! As a vegetarian, I often eat PB sandwiches with a bit of honey for lunch. I do sometimes worry about the insanely small serving size. I think I am going to give the TJ’s version a try! Thanks for your honest review!

I don’t know, I eat nut butter almost every day (while losing over 60 pounds) and I don’t see why I’d switch. To save some fat and calories? Fat helps enormously with satiety, which prevents me from overeating. And nuts are good for you. (I mostly eat other kinds of nut butter, such as almond butter, though I do enjoy all-natural Valencia peanut butter from time to time.) I’d rather eat foods closer to the way they came, and nut butters (the ones I eat) are basically just ground up nuts with a bit of salt, as opposed to something that is more processed. But to each her own, and I am of course aware that I eat other foods that you would not (meat, dairy, etc.). And I never have been one to eat it straight from the jar anyway.

[Reply]

Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

We eat a lot of fat too – avocado, nuts, olives, coconut oil, etc. I just personally prefer to get it from other sources. The thing about the powdered peanut butter is that it really IS just peanuts – same as the regular stuff, just with the oils removed!

I love PB2 but it can be quite costly. There’s a store in NYC that stocks it but one jar costs $6.50. That’s just too much. I can justify spending a lot on the real stuff, but powdered PB isn’t as good. I haven’t tried TJ’s but I’m definitely going to check it out now. To be honest, I didn’t even realize it was a substitute until this post.

Devon     at 6:26 pm

I picked up some TJ’s peanut butter flour today because I want to incorporate protein and peanut butter flour into things like muffins, smoothies and oats without necessarily using regular peanut butter.

I do eat a lot of nut butters because I actually rely on the calories to make sure I have enough (I am a very high mileage runner). And I can’t eat avocados (allergic, the horror!) so I figure its a good trade off.

You mentioned that you like sunflower seed butter. Have you tried pumpkin seed butter? So tasty and so good for you too! I think it might have a smidge fewer calories and fat than nut butter do, but not much.

I love the Trader Joe’s peanut flour, I add a pinch of salt, a little sweet n low and some cinnaon! I usually use it as a PB sub on my oat bran, I have made a pbj with it too, and I’ve made peanut butter pancakes. I really want to try The Non-Dairy Queens recipe for peanut butter pancakes/waffles(I don’t have a waffle iron). I love it, and its so much cheaper than pb2, which I ordered once, and liked, but never ordered again. I’m like you, I CANNOT have real PB in the house and eat it. It’s just too dangerous.

I was so “moved” by this post I now own the TJ’s peanut flour myself! Yay! But question: is the serving size 1/4 dry, or mixed? Not that there is that much of a difference, but I was still wondering.

I tried to buy peanut flour at Whole Foods first and the employee was positively baffled when I asked him about it. Then he told me if they had it it would be with the other “weird baking stuff.” I wonder if he does not espouse the lifestyle Whole Foods markets.

I may have just discovered the best use for peanut flour- highly recommend it. My mom always used to make peanut sesame noodles, which are amazing, but soo high in calories: peanut butter, sesame oil, sugar, etc., all on top of pasta. They’re addictive. I whipped up a sauce with reconstituted peanut flour, a little soy sauce, sesame seeds and starchy pasta water, and it’s amazing. In fact, the sauce is good on everything I just made for dinner. Thanks for reviewing it!

I’m so glad I came across this blog. I use sparkpeople and I’ve seen several people mention PB2. I even saw the peanut flour at TJ’s. I wondered if it was similar to PB2 but wasn’t going to get it unless I knew for sure. Your blog just made me want to run to TJ’s right now! Thank you!!

So since it’s been a while since you posted this, I’m curious… have you stuck with TJ’s peanut flower? Or have you gone back to PB2?

I love peanut butter, I eat it every day. I understand what you mean when you don’t want all those calories, because it is a calorie dense food. I guess PB flour would work for someone who truly cannot deal with the portion size but I think the point of peanut butter is the healthy fats it has. It doesn’t seem like you get that from pb flour. However, it does seem like a good choice when you want a big glop that would normally be 300 calories or something, especially if you want to lose weight. I would definitely still eat peanut butter because I only really have it in my oatmeal in the morning, so I don’t feel guilty about it. I will have to try this at some point though.

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

I eat a lot of other healthy fats like avocado, olives, and almonds. And actually fat from peanuts isn’t generally regarded to be one of the healthier fats, unlike something like almonds. But of course it all comes down to personal preference. I love the real stuff now and then.

Amazing review. Thanks for relinking this!

I have both PB2 and TJs peanut flour. I dont use them straight up that much but rather IN recipes. I sprinkle them into other batters/doughs. I should try just on their own, huh :)

Sadly I found out tonight that Trader Joes is discontinuing their peanut flour! (An employee told me too many people with gluten allergies also have peanut allergies, so they’re making a new gluten free flour instead.) But after this post I’ve become addicted to the stuff! Should’ve stocked up earlier — I guess I’ll have to try out PB2 now :)

Hi, Emily! Just wanted to drop a note, wondering if you’ve tried Montebello Kitchens’ Defatted Peanut Flour with Probiotics? I just found it on Amazon, while trying to find peanut flour since TJ’s discontinued theirs before I had a chance to try it. Hmm…12 bucks for 2 pack of 8oz. on Amazon, I may just have to get it so I can properly try your peanut sauce :) Just going to make the guilty version tomorrow for lunch, ha! Thank you also for the tofu tutorial because my tofu came out WAY better than the other few times I’ve attempted it! yay!!

I am THRILLED to find this review! I have tried PB2 and liked it, but am so excited about the lower costing peanut flour. I found the place that actually sold to Trader Joes (Trader Joes just private labeled it) and it should arrived today. 6 1-lb bags for $34 including shipping! That’s a ton!! It will be so much healthier for my whole family, and great for Weight Watchers. If anyone is interested, I ordered from here: http://www.southerngracefarms.com/peanutflour.html

AWESOME review. I’ve been a big fan of “Better-N-Peanut Butter” (also carried by TJ’s) in the past, but I recently tried PB2 (Amazon is selling 1 lb bags for $14 each, and I agree wholeheartedly with your review). One question, do you know if anyone locally (I live in NYC) else is carrying the TJ’s Peanut Flour anymore at the same ridiculously low price? I’d like to try it? It looks like TJ disconitued it.

[Reply]

Erica     at 5:56 pm

Anyone know if Fresh Market carries this? We don’t have a TJ’s or a WF and if can avoid shipping fees would love too. Wanting to try it in homemade hot chocolate recipe to make it like Reese Cup. Love the review and info.

Hey,

If anyone here is looking for PB2, I bought *way* too much of this a few months ago – I’m moving now, and won’t be able to finish them all in time.

I have 49 one-lb bags, unopened, and they don’t expire for 7 months. Email me at jmm7n@yahoo.com if you’re interested in buying any (I’ll send at a discount).

Thanks!

Kathy     at 1:10 pm

I know this is an extremely old post, but I have a question. I have a recipe that calls for peanut flour (baked tofu recipe). I don’t have any peanut flour but I have what is called Betty Lou’s Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter. Basically like the PB2, you just add water to the mix to make peanut butter. Is this something that can replace peanut flour? It is basically ground peanuts make into a powder. The recipe calls to coat or bread tofu into the peanut flour. Hoping I can use the powdered stuff so I don’t have to try to find where to buy the flour. Thanks

Try it with maple flavored agave syrup to reduce the refined sugar content. I had pb flour left from trying a cookie recipe that didn’t work out so well so I’m grateful for the new idea. I am also a nut butter freak currently addicted to Justin’s organic nut butters which have much less sugar than most. The maple almond and chocolate hazelnut are addictive!

You can getthe same peanut powder as TJ, from a company (whose product they used but labeled under TJ’s) called Protein Plus, http://proteinplusflour.com/

Also, it is good to note that PB2 is made from non GMO peanuts. That says a lot about why the price is higher.

I was at Whole Foods market yesterday, searching for some peanut flour or something similar to PB2 (I’ve been dying to try it), and one of the employees mentioned that they had a new product that just came in…it was PB2! I couldn’t believe my luck. It was only about $5 per jar, as well, which I thought was pretty decent. They also carried the chocolate flavor, but I decided to save that for next time. Anyway, I just tried it, and am already in love. I can hardly tell the difference between PB2 and the real stuff, and at 1/4 of the calories of peanut butter, I’m definitely a convert. So, check out your local Whole Foods! You might find that they’ve begun to carry it.

THANK YOU for this post. I was going to order th PB stuff on Wednesday but instead I sent an email to my sil who lives close to a TJ’s to buy me 3 bags and send them to me. I am thinking I can make some yummy low cal pb cookies and other goodies. I have started to eat low carb and eat mostly lean protein and cut out most white sugar. I am doing research for products that will let me do this as a lifestyle without having to sacrifice on some of my favorite foods and keep the cost down. This post is helping me do just that.

This is the BEST BLOG EVER! hahaha I am obsessed with PB2…I love almond butter, but the oil seems to really bother me when I put it in my oatmeal. However PB2 is delicious and never bothered me. However, it’s like as much money as having to buy packs of cigs…haha so I felt guilty spending that much money since I eat it pretty much every day in my oatmeal. I too like the bigger clump since it’s way less cals. Now I am going to have to try to find a trader joes. Again thanks so much for doing all this research! Real time and money saver. :)

Nonfatted peanut butter isn’t as good for the body as full-fat. That said I think this is a great option for long-term storage, for gluten free cooking and as pb substitution when you’re already getting enough fat from other sources. Seems like you could add fat if you wanted – maybe some coconut oil. Haven’t tried it but it sounds good.
Thanks for the reviews. I’m going to try them.

Just found PB2 and was excited but was web surfing to try to find some product that did not have the added sugar because I found it a bit sweet.

I recently discovered peanut flour but I have a question that I cannot find an answer to. It seems to vary wildly in calorie content. I recently bought some from an online seller that is 257 calories per cup. (yes, per cup.) 14% defatted. I have read that it can even be lower.

But, most of them, even 12% defatted, seem to be about 110 calories per 1/4 cup (440 per cup). That is higher than the powdered peanut butters, and the PB has added sugar! Has anyone noticed this and have any ideas?
