Peanut Butter Vanilla Mug Cake + Giveaway

Disclosure: I received two bottles of powdered peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co. through my partnership with FitApproach. As always, all opinions are my own. Full PR & Disclosure here

Powdered Peanut Butter is all the rage these days!

If you haven’t tried it yet, let me introduce you to Peanut Butter & Co’s Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter.

They started out as a peanut butter sandwich shop in 1998 with a simple mission: to help the world find delicious new ways to enjoy peanut butter every day! And after millions of PB dishes, they introduced their line of powdered peanut butter to all of us who enjoy an active lifestyle. (Thank you!)

So what is so great about powdered PB? EVERYTHING!!

Here’s the breakdown:

  • 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter.
  • 5-6 grams of protein
  • Only 1-1.5 grams of fat
  • Non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and made in America!

How do they do it?

They take USA grown peanuts, roast them and press them to remove most of the fat. What remains is protein, fiber and delicious peanut buttery taste!

Powdered Peanut Butter is easiest to add to your protein shake, but today I was craving a warm dessert. Grab this amazing & delicious 5 minute recipe and then ENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN your own powdered peanut butter below! Good Luck and don’t forget to leave a tasty comment below! (Giveaway starts at midnight on 10/19/15).

  1. I love powdered peanut butter! I’ve never tried this brand, though. Mug cakes with powdered pb are so good! I like to sub in oat flour (instead of other gf flour), and add some chocolate chips 🙂

  3. Hi Christina!

    Shannon Alexander here. Emily and I have been trying to make it back to your classes but have only been able to go twice since last week and both times have been with Stevie. He’s not as fun as you 😉 Shhhh!!!!! Anyway, we’ll be there on Monday!

    I wanted to reach out to you because as you may have seen from my IG, I am a professional food photographer. Not sure if there is ever a chance to collaborate but if you are ever interested in doing some food shoots where I can bring my lights and we can both use the images, I would be delighted to help! Think about it and let me know. I’d be happy to do it at no charge for you if you can give me some credit on your blog.

    See you soon. All the best,

    Shannon Alexander
