School is starting next week so I’ve been trying to find healthy snack solutions that my kids can eat quickly between school and sports practices. I’ve also been looking for meal options with protein for my picky athletes to help sustain their energy for their busy days. I hit the jackpot with PBFit Peanut Butter Powder. This versatile powdered peanut butter is made from real roasted, pressed peanuts but has 90% less fat and 1/3 of the calories of traditional peanut butter and a single serving packs 8 grams of protein!
I’ve been experimenting with different ways to use PBFit. I started out with the most simple way — as peanut butter! You just mix it with water and it becomes delicious creamy peanut butter for sandwiches or my favorite, as dip for apples.
Next I tried mixing it in with pancakes. I made a big batch of protein pancakes and froze them so my kids can have fast, easy and great tasting breakfasts on busy school mornings.
Now that I have some breakfast and lunch options I tested out some snack options and they were a huge hit. PBFit Energy Balls are easy to make but I can hardly keep them in the house. They disappear as fast as I can make them! Here’s the recipe:
2/3 Cup + 4T PBFit
1/2 Cup + 6T Water
2 Cups Oats
4T Ground Flax Seed or Chia (I use a mix)
1/2 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
Mix 2/3 Cup PBFit with honey and 6T water. Add oats, flax/chia and 4 T PBFit. Stir. Add 1/2 cup water a little at a time until mixture is sticky and holds together. You might need a little more or little less water. Roll into small balls and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove balls and place in freezer bag. Store in freezer.
We love eating a few of these before sports practices. They are filling and perfect for holding us over until dinner. They’re also great packed in lunches!
PBFit also comes in CHOCOLATE! It tastes like a treat but is only 70 calories per serving and offers 5 grams of protein and only 2 grams of fat. We liked the peanut butter chocolate flavor sandwiched between two slices of banana and frozen. We also love dipping pretzels in it! There’s a recipe for Chocolate PBFit Banana Muffins on the back of the container that we are excited to try too!
We usually just wing our smoothie recipes but there is one on the back of the original PBFit container if you need more precise measurements. We normally do banana, PBFit, greek yogurt, milk and ice. Sometimes we add spinach. I make a big batch then freeze whatever we don’t use into popsicle molds for another yummy treat! There are SO many ways to use PBFit and it will now be a staple in our household! We love this stuff!
