PB2 & A Giant Peanut Butter Cookie


#1

Actually, it’s just a variation on the bon-bon recipe found here: http://velocity.t-nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_bodybuilding_velocity_recipe/recipe_sticky_balls

Great dessert last night!

I use PB2 by the way, a powdered peanut butter. Contains a smidge of sugar, but no more carbs than regular natural PB. Worth it for 85% fewer calories. Great for recipes.

Powdered peanut butter…forgive me, but I am skeptical. How does it taste?

Pretty darn good, just add water and stir.

How would you compare it to Smuckers?

Texture is a bit different since there’s only 1.5g of fat instead of 16g, but I was pleasantly surprised. Great way to eat PB with less cals, or as I wrote above, great for recipes.

A scoop of PB2 powder in a Metabolic Drive chocolate shake is awesome.

Yeah - this stuff is good, i had forgotten about PB powder. Thanks Chris!


#8

i bet i could eat that whole thing RIGHT NOW! why do you have to taunt my love for PB while i am weak?


#9

To make you stronger.

Another variation of the bon-bon recipe turned “giant cookie.” Same idea, just flattening the whole dough ball into a cookie instead of rolling it into bon-bons.

This one is made with sunflower seeds and banana Metabolic Drive.

is this version cooked? so did you just replace some of the almond flour with this pb2 stuff?

i can’t wait to try the pb2 with my protein shakes.

Not cooked. Though that might work if you add baking soda and baking powder to it.

The PB2 is just an addition, about a tablespoon or two.

I love PB2. I add it to vanilla protein shakes and it makes a peanut butter creme shake. Slightly frozen and it tastes better. The cocoa PB2 is also great. It almost tastes like a peanut butter cup, but not as sweet. The only downside is you have to order at least 4 of them at a time.

I live in Canada so shipping for PB2 is an arm and a leg ($31.00 total). I’ll have to see if there’s any local powdered PBs.
