We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

This is truly a quirky product from Betty Lou’s and we had our doubts when we received the sample. But, we were pleasantly surprised because this product works and is actually an interesting substitute for regular peanut butter.

Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter is just that, a low fat, low calorie dry product made from three ingredients – organic peanuts, organic coconut sugar and sea salt. You simply mix 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter powder with 1 tablespoon water, stir until smooth and you have a product that looks and tastes like peanut butter. It is recommended that you reconstitute only the amount needed at one time. The powder itself has an extended shelf life and does not require refrigeration. It can be used mixed with honey or to flavor shakes and pudding. We mixed it with plain yogurt for a fun fruit dip for kids. It is a lightweight, high protein food for campers or hikers that can be easily reconstituted.

Two tablespoons has 45 calories, 1.5 grams of fat (no saturated fat, trans fat or cholesterol), 4 grams of protein, 5 grams of carb (2 of which are sugar and 1 gram fiber), 140 milligrams of potassium and 90 milligrams of sodium. Two tablespoons of traditional creamy peanut has 188 calories and 16 grams of fat. Just Great Stuff is certified organic and gluten free.
