Did you know that PB2 is not the only powered peanut butter on the market? If you like PB2, then I’m sure you guys will like FitNutz. Taste yummy in just about anything. I love adding this in Fitnessista’s oatmeal cookies in addition to some regular delicious peanut butter. Makes the cookie extra peanut buttery without all the fat and calories. Whoever first thought of powered peanut butter is a GENIUS I tell you. FitNutz offers Regular, Chunky (with real peanut bits inside) and Pro (which has more fatty acids for the active peeps out there.) The calorie ranges from 50 to 60 calories per 2 tbsp. Besides having less fat and few calories than most conventional peanut butters, these are also gluten free, no trans fat, and has not added hydrogenated oils. The simple ingredients includes: peanuts, sugar and salt. Simple yet so delicious. As with normal powered peanut butter, FitNutz is very versatile, works well in recipes, as toppings, in shakes (my fave), in dressings, in oatmeal cookies (my second fave), or just by itself (adjust water to create the consistency of your own liking.) People are so creative with their powered peanut butters these days that I can hardly keep up. FitNutz comes in resealable plastic pouch packaging which makes it light and very convenient to take it with you where every you go. Also, they offer sample packs for just $1.99 plus $3.00 shipping so you can try out all three varieties before you go ahead and purchase the variety of your choice.
