Since Peanut Butter & Co. began as a peanut butter sandwich shop in New York City, their mission has always been simple – to help the world find delicious new ways to enjoy peanut butter every day!

Over the years they have been a part of millions of tasty breakfasts, satisfying lunches, delicious snacks, and Instagram-worthy desserts.  More and more, they are hearing about how customers are interested in health and fitness, and finding ways to enjoy the foods you love but with added protein and less fat and fewer calories.
And that’s why they are introducing Mighty Nut® powdered peanut butter – it’s the delicious peanut butter taste you love, but in a new way that fits your active lifestyle.

Enjoy Mighty Nut alongside the Peanut Butter & Co. products you already know and love.  A sprinkle of Mighty Nut can supercharge a PB&J  or a fun snack like Ants on a Log.  Or rehydrate Mighty Nut with a little water and use it as a spread or a dip for fruit or veggies.  Mighty Nut is mighty easy to add to your favorite smoothie, and is perfect for all of your low calorie, high protein, and gluten free baking needs.

Whatever you’re up to in the kitchen, Mighty Nut can add delicious flavor and essential nutrition.  #EatMighty

Mighty Nut offers four different flavors of powdered peanut butter. The thing I really love about these peanut butters is that they are waaaaaay better for you, with less calories, fat, sodium, and sugar!

Mighty Nut does have 1 gram less protein, but I am MORE than willing to give up one gram of Protein to consume less than ~24% of the calories, ~90% less fat, ~30% less sodium, ~30% less carbs, ~30% less sugar, ALL without sacrificing the taste. I must admit, I love peanut butter, and now I can have as much as I want without feeling guilty or like I need to run 4 miles on the treadmill. See the difference for yourself:

From cooking to baking and everything in between, Mighty Nut® powdered peanut butter adds protein and peanut buttery flavor to every recipe you can dream up! Rehydrate Mighty Nut with a little water to spread it onto a delicious sandwich. Or try blending Mighty Nut with your favorite smoothie, sprinkling it on top of your oatmeal, or adding it to cookie or brownie batter. 

Peanut Butter & Co send me a jar of Mighty Nut Original and so I decided to try using it to bake some peanut butter cookies. I was curious if it would work the same. I mixed it with water.....2 tablespoons Mighty Nut with 1 tablespoon water. I mixed enough to make 1/4 cup which was what I needed for my recipe.

              Then I added my Mighty Nut mixture to the rest of my peanut butter cookies ingredients.

These peanut butter cookies turned out so good. I am extremely happy with mighty nut and also I'm happy knowing the cookies are that much healthier with calories and sodium. Now if I could just get all the other ingredients to be more healthy. LOL

I used own recipe but Peanut Butter & Co Might Nut website has an entire section of recipes that you can try using their Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butters > http://www.mightynut.com/recipes/

Powdered Peanut Butter is not only better for you, it has a much longer shelf life than non powdered peanut butter so you can add jars of it to your emergency bin or your survival kits. It is also awesome for hiking because it's super light and won't add weight to your pack. If you need a boost you can just pull out your Mighty Nut peanut butter, add a touch of water and you have a delicious protein packet snack.
