Just Great Stuff Chocolate Peanut Butter Powder

Ingredients; Powdered Chocolate Peanut Butter
Organic Peanuts, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Cocoa Powder (Dutch Alkalized), Organic Vanilla Powder, Sea Salt, Organic Purified Stevia Extract. 4 net carbs

What could I use it for?
Dry: Stocking up / pantry / emergency food storage
Dry: Traveling
Dry: Adding to smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal
Dry: Mixing in baked goods, pie crusts, pancakes, breads, fillings where the added volume and fat of nut butter would disrupt the recipe

Add water to powder to reconstitute into peanut butter for recipes or uses calling for regular peanut butter. 2 Tablespoons peanut butter powder to 1 Tablespoon water or milk or other liquid.

Review:
We loved both of these products (plain peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter) but our favorite is the chocolate peanut butter. Both peanut butter powders were delicious, easy to mix and worked well in my recipes. Having the powder on hand for an extended shelf life (I buy in bulk and vacuum seal into smaller portions) and for every day cooking, baking, on-the-go, health shakes and more, is so convenient. This is an item that is in our food pantry, all the time!

Highly Recommended! Taste testers approved!

RICH CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES *with food storage options


1 ½ cups Betty Lou’s / Just Great Stuff chocolate peanut butter powder
pinch of salt
¾ cup organic powdered sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup white or chocolate chips, or a mixture

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the eggs and vanilla and stir into the dry ingredients until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.

The cooking will puff up and become very soft and fragile. Resist the temptation to keep baking. Very gently (I use a pizza peel) remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cooking cool and deflate. Move cookies to a cooling rack.

Makes 18 cookies

*Food storage options
Sugar -If you store only granulated sugar, you can use as is, but the texture will be a bit different. You can pulverize the granulated sugar with a mortar and pestle, or a hand-powered blender. I like to add a small amount of organic arrowroot to my sugar when I “powder” it, but it’s not requires.

If you store honey or liquid sweeteners rather than granulated, only use 1 egg and keep the same amount of sweetener – ¾ cup.

Eggs– If you have access to fresh eggs, use large. If you store powdered eggs, reconstitute before mixing. Mix according to the brand directions. Let the egg hydrate fully before mixing in.

If you are egg-free, try subbing aquafaba (the liquid from cooked beans) * see my previous article on aquafaba, for the eggs. 3 tablespoons of unwhipped aquafaba per large egg.

Vanilla extract – storebought or homemade, lasts indefinitely. You can also use vanilla paste.

Chocolate Chips – I don’t know about you, but several types of chocolate (semi-sweet, milk, white etc.) are a regular part of my food storage.

Baking soda and salt – I also store bulk baking soda and sea salt, they have so MANY uses, not only dietary.
