Oatmeal Rasin Muffin

By Shannon Flanagan – CPT

Peanut butter…the best spread that goes with everything, right?  If it didn’t have such a high calorie and fat count I would eat it by the spoonful all day long.  I discovered a product called PB2 about a year ago and now I use this on just about anything.  It is an all-natural, powdered peanut butter from non-GMO roasted peanuts. You get the delicious nutty flavor with 85% fewer fat calories than traditional peanut butter!!!!   I still use almond butter for my fats, but this is another great option for snacks! Here are a few recipes you can make at home with a peanut powder and cut a good 200 calories in your meals!
