PB2 Rye Sourdough Waffles & Fruit

No, the cats haven’t been helping me with this post, the “PB2” is meant to be in the title. PB2 is powdered peanuts, which means most of the fat and calories get removed. You then mix with a little water to re-create peanut butter. In the UK you can get it on Amazon.

In a 2 tbsp serving the numbers are pretty impressive:

  • Peanut butter
    • 190 KCals
    • 130 KCals from fat
    • 3g saturated fat
  • PB2
    • 45 KCals
    • 13 KCals from fat
    • 0g saturated fat

Granted PB2 won’t have all the healthy fats you get from peanut butter, but if you love peanut butter and don’t want to pile on the pounds, you can always have peanut butter once or twice a week and to-up with daily PB2 :)

I’m going to use the chocolate variety (which just has some cocoa powder added) and put a few tbsps on the powder in with the same waffle mix I’ve done for fruit waffles before but reducing the flour a bit to allow for the PB2, and removing the cinnamon:

  • 1 cup refreshed rye sourdough
  • Just under 1 cup wholemeal flour (110g instead of 125g)
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp chocolate PB2
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp canola oil

We could taste the PB2 if you just had a bit of waffle, but with the fruit and maple syrup the taste got lost. So next time I think it’s going to need 4 tbsp of PB2.
