Peanut Butter Banana Bread PinterestI’ve always been a fan of peanut butter.  It’s delicious, full of awesome nutrients and is something that I never have to negotiate with my kids to get them to eat.  It’s a real winner.  The downside to traditional peanut butter is all that fat.  When powdered peanut butter hit the market, I was in the middle of a “personal revamp” and fell in love.  With the start of the new year, I know a lot of people are in a place where they are negotiating how to have the things they love while working toward a “new you”.

I went through a “personal revamp” a few years ago, a big part of which was committing to eating more frequently (smaller meals, just more of them) and adding snacks to my then daily regimen on no breakfast, a huge lunch and huge dinner (bad!).  I’m still trying to lose another 10-15 lbs this year.  Peanut butter powder has proven to be the perfect snack to help me stay satisfied between my meals.  It’s the protein that does it.  Keeping it at my office keeps me in check and helps me avoid any excuses for not staying on top of my goals this year and every year.

JIF Peanut Butter PowderPeanut powder is amazing to cook with.  There’s no gooey mess like regular peanut butter.  The powder mixes in to smoothies and baking with ease.  If you’ve ever tried to make a smoothie with peanut butter, or mix in into a baking mix by hand, you know exactly what I mean.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread IngredientsUsing Jif Peanut Powder in my Peanut Butter Banana Nut Bread cuts the drama of mixing, some of the fat (reduced even more by using applesauce!) and leaves you a treat that is protein packed and satisfyingly delicious!  It’s a dense bread, best served with a little butter (our was homemade) or jam.  It’s very filling, so you only need a sliver to satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you feeling satisfied.  Get the full recipe below!

Making Peanut Butter Banana BreadRegular Jif Peanut Powder is made from just one ingredient – fresh roasted peanuts – and has no added sugar or salt like competitors.  Plus,  Jif Peanut Powder has the same amount of protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat.  Added bonus, Jif Peanut Powder is much more cost effective than some of the other brands.
