What is powdered peanut butter?
Powdered peanut butter is peanuts that have been pressed to remove the oil. It has much less fat and calories than traditional peanut butter. You simply mix the powder with water to make a peanut butter spread. You can also bake with it and add it to smoothies.
If you've never tried powdered peanut butter, give it a try! The two leading brands on the market are PBfit and PB2.
I use PBfit for this recipe and three other ingredients that you may already have at home. Here's what you'll need:
Powdered Peanut Butter Mug Cake Ingredients
For powdered peanut butter mug cake, you'll need the following Ingredients:
- Powdered Peanut Butter- I used Fbfit that I purchased from Costco. It's also available through Amazon. PB2 works as well.
- Light Cool Whip- Feel free to use regular cool whip if that's what you have on hand.
- Milk of Choice- I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk will work.
- Baking Powder- Baking powder helps to give the mug cake a slight lift.
PBfit and Pb2 are two different brands of powdered peanut butter. Both products have significantly lower calories and fat when compared to traditional peanut butter. PBfit is slightly higher in protein and calories with 8 grams of protein and 70 calories per two-tablespoon serving.
Any small microwave-safe dish will work for this recipe, such as a small (around 10-12 ounces) ramekin.
