I love peanut butter powder (PB2 is my brand of choice) It's my favourite "diet" food. I mix with water and put it on toast or I dip apples in it but does anyone have any other creative uses for this wonderful stuff?

    I take one of those 80 calorie non fat greek yogurts, and mix in about a serving of PB2. Delicious and only 125 calories. Satisfies my urge for peanut butter pretty well. Sometimes I'll that and spread it on a tortilla or protein brownie, etc.

    I like it in Greek yogurt or on top of low calorie ice cream. I actually can't keep it around because I get a heavy hand with it. I never actually make peanut butter with it either. It's good in shakes too.

    I've used it to make satay sauce for marinading chicken or in a stir fry

    I have been thinking about doing something similar. Do you add anything else to it other than water when you're marinating the chicken?

    Put it on pancakes, mix it with Greek yogurt or oatmeal or a protein shake, make cupcakes or cheesecake with it, mix it with fresh blackberries for kind of a pb&j effect...

    Mix the powder into all kinds of things but never add water to make it into peanut butter. I put it in my cheesecake recipe, my oatmeal, greek yogurt, sprinkle it on top of my bran cereal, protein shakes, I love the stuff! Have to buy it in bulk off Amazon I go through it so fast!

    My favorite is mixing it into my greek yogurt though, tastes like nutter butter <3

    I have used it in this recipe: http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10500016/low-calorie-protein-cheesecake/p1

    I have also made a sauce and used it on noodles with broccoli.

    I have mixed 1 serving with 0.25 servings of peanut butter and some honey and and water spread it on bread. I tried mixing it up with just water and spreading it on bread... I need a little bit of added fat and the sweetness from the honey to eat it as a sandwich spread.

    I really want to make a peanut butter pie with it! I have been looking at different recipes trying to decide which one to try.

    I like to dry fry a serving of shirataki noodles until the water is gone, then add 1 T peanut powder and 1 T soy sauce with about 1/2-1tsp coconut oil for a quick noodle dish. It's good with a squeeze of lime and garnish of scallions or cilantro. I stole/adapted that recipe from Trim Healthy Mama.

    I also like peanut butter cream cheese fudge adapted from the same cookbook. It's 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil, 3/4 cup peanut flour, 3 oz cream cheese (lowfat or regular), a pinch of salt and sweetener or sugar of your choice to taste. Melt it all together, spread it in a pan and freeze or refrigerate until it hardens.

    I prefer the Pb fit. I put it in my protein shakes and I also have made it into peanut butter and it was delicious!

    I have a serious thing for fruit and peanut butter shakes. Blueberry peanut butter is my personal favorite. I get that at cookout most of the time. At home this skinned up smoothie hits all the same spots for about a fifth of the calories. I put in 3 servings of frozen fruit, but tablespoons of peanut powder, 3 cups of almond milk, and a strong squirt of liquid Stevia. Sometimes mint or basil if I am feeling fancy. I also do not like to mix water into mine. There is some 35 calorie a slice bread where I live and I like to mix the peanut powder into sugar free jelly and put it on the bread. If you do that with a to go sandwich it keeps the bread from getting all soggy from the water. Like someone mentioned above, it is so very good in oatmeal.
