The thing we all love, but also all tend to overeat: peanut butter. Have you ever actually weighed the peanut butter you are eating? I imagine if you are here, you probably have at least once. And, I am sure you were disappointed with the result.
High Protein Low Calorie Peanut Butter Spread
You think you are having 1 tablespoon, but in reality its almost 3. 100 calories vs 300 calories is quite a big difference. So, that's why I have saved the day with the BEST, high protein, low calorie peanut butter spread.
Well, with this recipe, a 32g serving (2 tbsp), which is 200 calories and 16g fat for regular peanut butter is just 70 calories, and only 2.5g fat. You really cannot beat that.
And, the best part is you don't miss any of the creamy peanut butter deliciousness, in fact, the taste testing I have done with friends and family is that it is just as good or better.
Easy, all-in-one blender recipe
So, besides the fact that is is literally the most macro-friendly peanut butter you will ever try, it is also actually quite easy to make. Simply add everything to the blender and continue to blend and scrape down the sides until smooth and creamy.
You can also use a food processor, which might even work better, but either will be perfectly fine!
Perfect for all your regular recipes using peanut butter
Do you want a much more macro-friendly PB&J? You can do that. Want some extra protein and peanut butter flavor in your oatmeal? You have come to the right place. Heck, you can do it like me and just take a huge spoonful out and eat it straight from the jar. There are no rules!
Anyways, hope you guys enjoy this one! And a nice little video so you can see how creamy and delicious it is!
1 can (250g) white beans, drained and rinsed
2 scoops (68g) ONE Protein, vanilla ice cream flavor*
¾ cup (100g) peanut flour (PB Fit or PB2)
¼ cup (64g) creamy peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup (60g) sugar free maple syrup
½ tsp salt
*Must use a whey / casein blend like ONE Protein, whey protein will NOT work. Vegan protein would be a good substitute.
- Add beans, peanut butter, almond milk, and sugar free maple syrup to a powerful blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth and creamy.
- Add protein powder, peanut flour, and salt. Blend again until a thick peanut butter forms. You will likely need to scrape down the sides of the blender a few times and continue to blend.
- Remove from the blender and place in a sealed container overnight in the fridge to let it thicken up slightly. Enjoy!
