I got this on a whim and I love it! I don't care for it on bread but it's fantastic in smoothies or mixed up and used as a fruit dip. Right now I'm eating it mixed half and half with coconut milk and water, with a dash of salt, and some chocolate chips.

I've read that peanut flour is a cheaper substitute--anyone tried it?

Yes! I've bought peanut flour from Trader Joe's and have used it in granola bars. I really like it! Nice flavor.

Do you just mix it in like you would peanut butter?

No, I used it as a flour...and still added PB. We're kinda PB obsessed over here :-)

I'm also excited to use it in cupcake frosting or filling!

I have the Betty Lou's brand. I dipped a banana in it the other day. Delicious!

The website suggests mixing it with juice as a spread. That seemed weird to me, so I mixed it with smashed berries and put it on toast. It was yummy that way!

I am sorta nuts for peanut butter. I know other nut butters are all the rage (almond, sunflower etc) but I am still a peanut butter gal. The calories just kill me though, so I try to chill on it. But I could serioulsy eat half a jar at one sitting, by itself.

But with only 45 calories and 6 grams of protein, that is pretty good! I can add it to smoothies. Yum. Good protien boost.

Where do you get it? online? someone said TJ's (or is that just peanut flour?)

I thought TJ's discontinued the peanut flour?

I got my PB2 on Amazon. I was ordering a buncha other stuff and had a gift card to use, so it seemed like a good time (and everything arrived in one box!). I haven't seen the peanut flour at TJs in some time. I haven't actually seen peanut flour in any other stores around here, but now I know to keep my eyes peeled for it.

I also have the Betty Lou's powdered peanut butter. I found it in the regular peanut butter asile at my Wegmans. It's fantastic in smoothies, but I want to cook with it too!

The flavor isn't quite "peanut butter" but it's definitely tasty. I love everything peanut butter-related so I had to pick this up as well. I use it in my nanner ice cream normally (I will not apologize for calling it ice cream).

They did. At least a year ago. But, being the hoarder I am, I bought like 20 bags of it when I heard it was being discontinued and froze it. I still have a bunch left, and it seems to still be fine. I put it in my smoothies every morning. 1/4 cup has 16 grams of protein, so it's a great replacement for protein powder and tastes SO much better and doesn't have the chalky texture. I'm going to be so sad when I use the last of my stash.
