I love peanut butter! Like LOOOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE it. However, my love doesn’t even begin to compare to the way my boyfriend feels about it. When we first start dating I remember spotting a peanut butter maker in his cupboard (Yep, you heard me right! A. PEANUT. BUTTER. MAKER.) and thinking he might be a keeper. We had a romantic date over grinding peanuts – we couldn’t even hear each other over the loud grinder, but no words were needed. We were falling in love…in a tiny bathroom. Whaaatttt?! Yeah, we actually had to move our fun little operation into the bathroom to help mute the shrill sound. Tommy used to live in a cranky building and he didn’t want a noise complaint. I’m not sure what they would have judged more… the fact that he had his own personal peanut butter maker or the fact that we were making it in his bathroom.
Despite our love for the spread, we don’t llllooovvveeee how many calories and fat it contains. Mainly because we can’t stop ourselves from eating the entire jar. Enter PB2…
PB2 is powdered peanut butter. Yes, the idea sounds frightening but it’s just dehydrated peanuts which removes the oil and you add water back in. Plus, you can’t argue with 85% less fat and calories and three ingredients: peanuts, sugar + salt.
