It’s time to power up with these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins, one taste and you’ll be in love!
Have you heard about Jif™ Peanut Powder yet? I saw it in the store recently by the jars of peanut butter and immediately was intrigued. I decided to pick up a bag of it to try at home. The verdict?
It taste just like peanut butter with 85% less fat than the jars of peanut butter. Crazy, right? I was shocked to see the reduction of fat. This is particular great for me as I’m working very hard to get myself on track again with weight and exercise. One thing I have noticed is that if I eat just a bit of peanut butter before my workout I have so much more energy! Now, I can do just that without breaking the calorie bank.
Jif™ Peanut Powder is made with only one ingredient, roasted peanuts. There is also no additional sugar or salt either. That’s it!
I decided to whip up these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins using the peanut powder as a little pick me up after a long workout.
I even had a little help in the kitchen, my daughter was happy to help me. She’s become quite the queen of the kitchen lately or as much as a 3 year old can be. I was surprised to find that the peanut powder when mixed with water immediately turns into the same consistency as regular peanut butter. That makes it not only great for baking but also eating on sandwich too.
I’m planning to whip up some protein balls next with the peanut powder. My kids love it in smoothies too. It’s a win-win situation!
Have you tried peanut powder yet? I’m looking forward to trying even more with it. What recipe would like to try it in?
