PB2 and lovely links

Happy Sunday friendly friends!I hope you're all having a tremendous weekend so far (maybe getting some Christmas shopping done? I still need to start...)

Anywho, we don't need that kind of stress to think about on a day as relaxing as Sunday. No, instead we should be thinking about the really good stuff in life.

Like friends.


and FOOOD!

So when I was out grocery shopping yesterday I came across something that I had once again only seen on American blogs/ vlogs etc.

PB 2 ! I got kind of excited and spent all $11 (quite pricey!) on it to have my very own tester of the dried peanut spread creation.

So as to the directions I stirred 1 tablespoon of water with 2 tablespoons of PB 2, of course  quickly realised that i eat way more PB than that, added a bit more PB 2 and water and gave it a little try! Now I usually buy all natural peanut butter with no added salt or sugar and PB 2 actually has a little bit of salt and sugar in it, so the flavour was definitely a lot stronger and different to what I was used to, but I was pleasantly surprised how much it looked like PB and the identical texture it created when mixed with water!

I decided to top my breakfast of orange creamsicle oats (made with steel cut oats) with it (with some extra regualr PB dolloped throughout just for safe measure ;)
Yep, that's the dried stuff right there:
It was definitely a lot sweeter than I was used to and maybe a bit more peanutty? (I think maybe the salt brought that flavour out/ it was more concentrated in flavour having being dried/ sucked of moisture)
But I guess in the end, all natural, creamy, crunchy, honest to goodness peanut butter will always have my heart.
Because really- nothing can compare to that :)
And now, as it is Sunday I have some fabulous links for you to check out from the week that was!

  1. Steph, you need to get 'peanut flour'- it's cheaper than PB2 and has no sugar or salt so you add it yourself. I add it into peanut butter stuff, smoothies etc to enhance the flavours- You'll love it! (but it will never replace normal peanut butter haha!)

    1. Arman,
      See, this is why I keep you around! :P
      But really- that's such a great idea- that's basically what PB 2 is anyway!!
      Thanks so much!
