Pure PB: Powdered Peanut Butter Recipe and Giveaway

August 17, 2014

It’s no secret – I LOVE me some peanut butter. Specifically, I love the Krema/Crazy Richard’s brand of peanut butter. The reason: 1 ingredient. PEANUTS. No added sugar and salt like most other peanut butters you will see on the supermarket shelf. Need proof of my love? Well, check out what happens when Krema coupons are loaded to my Kroger card and there is also a double whammy of a sale…

I. Buy. ALL. The. Krema.

That’s 3 rows deep of natural peanut butter folks. Not pictured: the opened jar in my fridge. It’s an obsession I am perfectly fine with.

Krema Stock Up

Shortly after the last giveaway I had for Krema/Crazy Richard’s natural peanut butters, the great folks at Krema products informed me of an exciting NEW product they are set to release – Pure PB. What is Pure PB? I’m so glad you asked. Pure PB is powdered peanut butter – but in true Crazy Richard’s/Krema fashion does not have any ingredients besides peanuts!

The Label Comparison (per 12 gram serving):

Pure PB = 1.5 g fat, 3 g carbohydrate, 6 g protein, and 0 mg sodium vs. “Popular Powdered Peanut Butter” = 1.5 g fat, 5 g carbohydrate, 5 g protein and 94 mg sodium

Powdered peanut butters have essentially had the oil pressed out of them, making them much lower in fat than their conventional counterparts.

I will always prefer the taste of actual peanut butter over the powdered ones when consumed alone, but the powdered ones are great to use in a variety of recipes – especially when trying to lower the fat content of a meal! In the past I have used powdered peanut butters in my morning oatmeal, smoothies, mixed and melted with chocolate chips and in stir-fry dishes. When my shipment of Pure PB arrived, I quickly put it to use in those capacities and was NOT disappointed!

Pure PB

However, new product means it is time for a new recipe! With a surplus of zucchini needing to be put to use, I went with Raw Zucchini and Carrot “Pad Thai” with Spicy Pure PB Sauce.

Sauce:

  • 24 g (about 4 Tablespoons) Pure PB
  • 15 g (about 1 Tablespoon) Soy Sauce
  • 5 g (about 1 teaspoon) Rice Vinegar
  • Water to make sauce to desired thickness
  • Red pepper flakes to taste/spice preference!

Combine with ~ 2 cups each, zucchini  and carrots, peeled into noodle strips. Microwave and enjoy!

Vegetable Pad Thai with PB Sauce

The sauce was so good I may have actually drank the left overs at the bottom of my Tupperware….yah, guilty! This recipe has already been put into the regular rotation. Twice last week and in the line up for this coming week as well!

Up next on my “to make” list with Pure PB:

  • Peanut butter frozen yogurt. Mix with greek yogurt and freeze for a bit?
  • Flavored peanut butters. I love plain peanut butter, but sometimes the flavored versions call out to me. However, the ingredient list on those leaves much to be desired. Using Pure PB as my base would allow for easier incorporation of various flavors: Cinnamon-Raisin, Pumpkin Pie Spice, Cranberry-Almond…the possibilities are endless!
  • High protein peanut butter. I keep seeing different versions of these for sale from different companies. Basically they seem to just be a mixture of peanut butter and whey protein. Seems like something I could easily create on my own, but at a much lower fat level with Pure PB.

Enough of me blabbing – how can you get your hands on some Pure PB? Well, starting in September you should see Pure PB on store shelves as well as being available on-line at both the Krema/Crazy Richard’s website and on Amazon. If your store isn’t carrying it, just ask a manager to get it on the shelves for you! :-) Don’t want to wait until September? Understandable! So up for grabs to TWO Dine, Dash, Deadlift readers is the chance to WIN two jars of Pure PB before it hits the shelves.

To be entered: leave a comment with a recipe for using Pure PB. I want to know how you would use it…because essentially I want to steal your idea and put it to use myself! If you have a recipe already that you think Pure PB could be substituted in for another ingredient, help a girl out and post the link for all to see!

I will choose my 2 favorite recipe ideas* and Crazy Richard’s/Krema will send you your Pure PB gift pack! So put your creative hats on and start brainstorming some Pure PB recipes. Contest closes Saturday, August 23rd and winners will be contacted and announced Monday, August 25th.

*Contest only open to those 18 years of age or older and living in the continental United States.

      I forgot to mention, add stevia to sweeten it up.

    Gimme!!

    How about some Pure PB sweet potato/oat waffles!

    1/2 cup oat flour
    3 oz cooked sweet potato
    1 cup egg whites
    1-2 servings of Pure PB
    Sweetener/cinnamon to taste

    Mix all ingredients and put them in waffle maker. That’s something I would love to add it too!

    Mmmm….peanut butter. I’m sure I could think of a ton of easy ways to use this – smoothies, banana pb “ice cream”, etc – but I think it would work really well into the recipe below (found on another blog) which is one of my favorite dinners. It sounds kind of similar to your idea in the post, so I think you’d like it. :)

    Oh man! All these things sound great!!
    I love this recipe and have sometimes added PB to it:

    Dark Chocolate Cups:
    2 Tbsp Ghee or Unsalted Organic Butter
    2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin, Organic
    4 Tbsp. Dark 100% Cacao Powder
    4 tsp. Finely Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
    Pinch Celtic Sea Salt
    20 Drops Liquid Vanilla Stevia
    Freeze until hard
    aaaannnnnnnndddd the kicker: add 1/2 serving of Pure PB… Just kidding, the desired PB you would enjoy:)

    Boil a bit of noodle and drain the water out. Add a spoon (or more, depending on your preference) of PB and mix it with some sesame oil. Add some chili oil if you like a spicy kick. Add some salt if you want the sodium, or leave it out to enjoy PB’s original flavors.

    Delicious n Easy: I would (and want to soon!) stir in some powdered Pure PB into some thick greek yogurt (experiment w/flavor combos ;) ), add a little stevia or salt if you like a more salty PB, stir it up, and boom! You’re done! For a more ice-cream-ish touch, place in freezer for 10 or 15 mins. Mmm…

    I found this recipe which is a perfect snack for my kids:
    PEANUT BUTTER AND APPLE NACHOS
    2 Large Apples
    4 TB Peanut Butter
    1 TB of honey
    Shredded Coconut
    Peanut Butter or Chocolate Chips
    Thinly slices your apples and lay them on a dish. Mix together peanut butter & honey until it reaches a drizzle type consistency by putting it in the microwave for a few seconds. Add more of each if necessary. Drizzle on top of your apples. Add toppings.

    I would mix Pure PB with vanilla protein powder and a little almond milk to make a sweet peanut butter protein frosting. Easy peasy!

    I’d also love to try making low-sugar peanut butter cups. Someone posted a recipe for peanut butter cups here and it sounds yummy!

    Looking up recipes made me hungry… i found these two:
    Peanut Butter, strawberry, banana quasedillas http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2012/06/peanut-butter-strawberry-banana-quesadillas/

    or for more savory
    lettuce wraps with peanut sauces

    http://www.coffeeandquinoa.com/2013/07/fresh-lettuce-wraps-with-peanut-dipping-sauce/

    You will probably have to play around with the consistency of the peanut sauce… both sound heavenly.
