Today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.
What is powdered peanut butter? Made for Bell Plantation (Tifton, GA), this PB2 package contained a powder that was made from slow roasted and pressed peanuts. The pressing process removed 85 percent of the fat/oil, according to the information on the packaging. The list of ingredients was short: roasted peanuts, cocoa powder, sugar and salt.
Add water until you reach a creamy consistency and you have instant chocolate peanut butter that would be handy for multiple uses, including a topping for ice cream, camping trips, fancy sandwich making, or snacks on the go. I added water, stirred the resulting paste, and let it sit for a minute. Then I added a bit more water. The texture was smooth and creamy, the chocolate taste was very mild, and the sugar and salt seemed minimal -- to my liking.
I paired this gluten-free PB2 peanut butter with a gluten-free Picky Bar ("made for picky eaters on the go"). This Picky Bar ("Lauren's Mega Nuts - Peanut Butter Booyah") was very fruity tasting, and the PB2 peanut butter helped evoke a peanut butter and jelly sandwich flavor. And, there was still plenty of PB2 leftover to try eating plain, or tasting with small bits of other items (banana, cookie, apple).
