Mmmmmm Peanut Butter #PBSlim #Vitacost

I am a huge fan of peanut butter.  But I don't eat it very much because of the calorie content.  I know, I know.

The problem with my love of peanut butter and the calorie content is that I lack the shut off valve with that stuff.  Then pair it with dark chocolate and you may as well as just hand me a spoon and the jar and  walk away.  Fast!

To say I'm excited by Vitacost's PBSlim Powdered Peanut Butter would be an understatement.  The first thing I noticed is this.


Some other awesome facts about PBSlim.
- Gluten Free
- All natural/ zero additives
- NonGMO
- 45 calories per serving (2 Tbsp)


I immediately got to work trying out my new PBSlim.

With an apple.


Some people slice their apples.  That took far too much time for me.  I just put globs of PB Slim on my apple and it tasted delicious!  

In my morning smoothie.  



PB Slim & Banana Protein Smoothie Recipe:
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (your choice)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp of PB Slim
  • 1 cup of almond milk 


Blend, pour into favorite cup, drink and enjoy.  



Then to finish it all up, I experimented with some Gluten Free PB & Chocolate Chip cookies.


We're attempting to be a reduced gluten family, so I wanted to experiment with some gluten free cookies.  Verdict?  YUM!

Gluten Free PB Slim and Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1/2 cup prepared PB Slim
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs tapioca starch
  • 10 tbsp of gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • splash of vanilla
  • handful of dark chocolate chips

Directions.  (so easy)

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the first 7 ingredients well, then add in the chocolate chips.  
  3. Scoop onto baking pan and put in oven for 10-12 minutes.
