POWDER & JELLY ???? WHAT??

See what I did there? I don’t know about you, but I LOVE peanut butter! I think every child (save those with peanut allergies….) grows up thinking this magical spread is a food group unto itself. I know I did. I STILL love that flavor.

So, when I walked past a “powdered” version of my fave…I shook my head and thought “some progress is just not right…”. How could something as delish as PB be any good in a powdered form???!!

Then it happened, I bought a jar and tried it. Grimacing the entire time making those “disapproving” noises….. SURPRISE! It is amazing. Easy to mix and tastes even better than the “old school” version. They’ve created a classic without the oil and fat of the original. I don’t know about you but this means I can eat more of it and not get a twinge of guilt….I’m good with anything that produces that outcome.

So, here are a couple of things I did with my first tastes:
