As a powder, you need to mix in your own water to make a paste. But one 2-tablespoon serving is only 45 calories with 1.5 grams of fat — just a single Weight Watchers point.
I’m unlikely to dink around with mixing this stuff up every time I want to make a peanut butter sandwich. (There’s also the cost factor — more than $5 for a 6.5-ounce jar.)
But it feels like a good thing to add to my oatmeal on those days where I want the taste (and most, but not quite all, of regular peanut butter’s protein*) without all the fat.
*Regular peanut butter has 8 grams of protein, while PB2 has 5 grams. The other thing that gets pressed out along with the fat and oil is Vitamin E. Regular peanut butter supplies about 10% of the USRDA, but there’s none in here.
