It's basically peanut butter with the fat removed, so it ends up being a powder. You then add water to it to make it a peanut butter consistency. Here it is on amazon, but you can normally find it in the peanut butter section at grocery stores. I think other peanut butter brands have started making their own version of it too!
Instead of making "peanut butter" with it, it's really good mixing into things like smoothies and sauces in its powdered form to give them a peanut flavor without all the calories. I make a sauce with it by mixing it with soy sauce, sriracha, rice wine vinegar, and a little honey for a yummy lower cal asian peanut sauce.
Oh yes they do! Here you can find it on Amazon.
I've also added dark cocoa powder with a little stevia and the Greek yogurt.
Bananas and peanut butter and chocolate always go together!
I've been having this new kind of smoothie lately, it's been terribly delicious. Frozen banana slices, frozen blueberries, soy milk, and.. powdered peanut butter. Never had powdered peanut butter before but holy shit, makes the smoothest, thickest, most delicious smoothies I've ever had. I have a ninja blender and I drink nearly an entire blender full of it every morning.
it's not a terrible idea if you like peanut butter beers. I would probably be satisfied with taster.
What OG are you looking to hit? at 1.040, I would look to hit 20 IBU, 30 MAX, and move Fuggles to 20minutes to give a flavor complexity, but less aroma. Personally, I'd reduce the Melanoiden a little. Golden Naked Oats might be a nice addition too. If you're set on using a dextrine malt, use Weyermann Carafoam instead of Briess carapils. Keep in mind that Malted oats are much thinner than barley malt and therefore need a narrower gap in your mill--I would mill them separately.
Definitely use PB2. I'm not sure how people use it with success (dry hop? flameout?) so do some research on what has worked for others and mimic it in your recipe.
In general berries are what keto-ers eat. However, 2 people live at my house, and sharing fruit is not uncommon... As for peanut butter, real, ground peanuts like what you would buy at the health food store has very low carbs, the problem with most store ones is they add sugar. Almond butter is quite good as well, and you may not know about [link] but it is pretty awesome for dieting. Remember too that your total carbs are net carbs, ie: you subtract fibre from your carb count.
I buy PB2 which is like peanut butter but with like 90% less fat (its powdered). You mix it with water and it actually tastes a lot like peanut butter, or i use it in protein shakes if i want a peanut butter taste. I like it quite a bit, but it is kind of expensive. Or Id say just to have some peanut butter! Buy the stuff that doesnt have a lot of added salt or sugar, and only have the recommended serving size (usually 2 tablespoons). Peanut butter is fine in moderation just makes sure you dont go over board.
I had a similar thought too. I put a gob of peanut butter in a shaker cup and it didn't really work. What does work, however, is powdered peanut butter!
I... I didn't even know this was a thing. Now I do, and I'm gonna get me some. They sell it on the UK Amazon site, I guess it's imported, hence the high price.
I come here to proselyte for the church of PB2
Peanut Butter and PB2 is powdered peanut butter as seen here at Amazon: [link]
I usually make my oats with water, I find it to be just as creamy as using almond milk or regular milk. To make your oats more voluminous I like to double the liquid and cook time, it literally doubles the amount of oats. This is the recipe: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2009/07/03/kozyshack-oatmeal-pudding/
To add flavor I do either cinnamon and truvia or:

Today I am having mine with peanut butter, PB2 is a powdered version for 25 calories per tablespoon: https://www.amazon.com/PB2-Powdered-Peanut-Butter-6-5/dp/B002GJ9JWS?th=1 I find that one tablespoon adds enough flavor.
Peanut powder you mean peanut flour or PB2 powder [link]?
> Peanut butter is actually one of the worst culprits for Omega 6 fatty acids.
Whoops! There's stuff like like this which has greatly reduced fat: [link]
A serving has 1.5g fat compared to about 16g for actual peanut butter. It only has 5g protein compared to 8g for regular peanut butter, though, so if you ate the equivalent amount it would probably be around 2.6g fat.
> But it looks like Macadamia nuts are nearly free of Omega 6, and they are lower in fiber than the other nuts.
Just keep 'em away from your dog, if you have one. They're pretty toxic to dogs. They're pretty high in fat, so you probably couldn't get a lot of protein from them without exceeding your caloric requirements but variety is always nice.
These are the kind I've had in the past: [link]
I'd recommend them, but they are pretty expensive. They were the best deal for reasonably rated hemp hearts at the time I investigated. 10g protein to 1g fibre. They taste similar to wheat germ, just with a bit of a nuttier/sharper taste.
> I also saw seaweed can be great if you can actually eat enough of the stuff.
I'm not really a fan, but if you enjoy it!
> What do you use in substitution for eggs? Most substitutes I see are high fiber and I'd prefer not to use those.
For baking? I usually don't use anything, but I don't bake a lot of stuff like cakes. Apple sauce and mashed banana are two substitutes that come to mind which are frequently used in baking. You might be able to use silken tofu or arrowroot powder (mostly starch, I don't think it would have much fiber.)
There are also dedicated egg replacers, like this stuff: [link]
It doesn't seem to have any significant fiber. I don't think I've ever tried it myself.
By the way, if you crave the eggy taste for non-baking stuff there's a salt called kala namak which has a very sulfery-eggy taste. I like to toss some cubed tofu with a bit of cornstarch, kala namak, and black pepper then fry it in a hot pan with some olive oil. Tastes a lot like fried eggs and the texture is pretty much like egg whites.
This is what I have: [link]
Not sure if it's still the best deal, but a little goes a long way. I bought the 1lb package back in 2012 and still have a decent amount left.
By the way, the Amazon links aren't affiliate links or anything like that. Just a possible place to acquire it if you're interested. I'd certainly recommend doing a little independent research before buying.
Okay thank you so much for that explanation! I think pb2 will be the way to go with me. I assume something like this will be fine?
You can at least on amazon. Yes, it is this expensive :/
I wonder if they make an almond version of PB2?
...apparently, there's something similar:
I have one of these: [link]
I bought mine for $10CAN. Easy for on the go. My go-to recipes are: frozen strawberry/bananas, greek yogurt, milk, sometimes I add ground flax OR 1 medium banana, milk, 4 tbsp PB2 ([link]), ice, and sometimes 1-2 tsp of chocolate sauce. You can use normal peanut butter as well, I'm just trying to watch calories ATM.
If it's not feasible to get one of those types of blenders, look into overnight oatmeal. It's not really up my alley, so I can't recommend recipes, but I know I've seen recipes that use frozen fruit.
It's a low cal powdered peanut butter. It tastes really good.
PB2 sucks on its own or as a replacement in a regular PB&J, but you sprinkle that shit on your yogurt... baby you got a stew goin'. Or something.
I use PB2. It's pretty good.
Powdered peanut butter with the fat removed. [link]
For flavoring, here are my two favorites (for use separately, not together):
use PB2 for the peanutbutter. I dont remember the dosage, but I do recall threads on HBT about using it in beer.
This is something I recently bought that's lightweight and has added sugars. Pb2
Other things I can think of include dehydrated pineapple and papaya.
You could try getting pb2 powder and substituting your own healthier sweetener and oil.
It might not be but it is really easy to measure and blend. I personally use my protein scoop to get my PB powered as a measure. I buy this brand: [link]
it's not a new thing at all...
Sounds odd but this stuff is really good PB2
You've got a GREAT start, but a few items I'd be wary of that others have pointed out are - Granola (these are usually high in sugar), Breads (these are generally high in simple carbs and are treated in the body like sugar), Peanut Butter (these can have lots of sugar added and are really high calorie, try PB2). Your plain yogurt is pretty good as well, be careful of flavored yogurts though as they add a lot of sugar.
One of the most useful things you can do in determining what's 'healthy' is learn how to interpret food labels. The 2 most important labels to know are:
Nutrition Labels -
FDA standards maintain consistency between products so consumers can compare nutritional values, but consumers must also be aware that manufacturers can deceive shoppers by manipulating serving sizes. Products such as creams, butters, and cheeses are often listed in much smaller serving sizes than they are actually used in.
Make an educated decision in the store by converting servings on the label into the amount used in the recipe; providing a more realistic idea of the nutritional value each ingredient contributes to the recipe and allowing us to determine whether we want to find a substitute for it.
Ingredient List - The ingredient list is another important piece in evaluating product quality because every ingredient is displayed in order of prominence. As a rule of thumb the fewer the ingredients, the better and if I can pronounce the ingredients that's even better.

Peanut butter blaster? Like dehydrated peanut butter powder?
Powdered peanut butter.
Edit: Best answer (along with PB fit) in the thread that answers the OP with exactly what he wants and it gets downvoted.
Umm, one doesn't? Okay! Now you don't have to! <3
