Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Oatmeal + A Giveaway!

Powdered peanut butter is a magical and mystifying thing. I remember buying my first container of it a couple years ago and thinking it was amazing. While regular peanut butter is still a staple in my kitchen, the powdered version is a great addition to throw in smoothies or cookies without changing the consistency around too much.

Powdered peanut butter is made by roasting the peanuts, then pressing them to remove most of the fat. What remains is the protein, fiber, and delicious taste of peanuts. While healthy fats are an important part of my diet, I also tend to eat my weight in homemade almond butter throughout the day. Having a powdered version of peanut butter allows me to still enjoy the great taste of peanut butter without getting 95% of my daily fat calories from nuts. To rehydrate the powdered peanut butter, all you have to do is mix 2 Tbsp powder with 1 Tbsp of water. Voila!

Peanut Butter & Co., the company that is responsible for such decadent peanut butter flavors as Dark Chocolate Dreams and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, recently launched Mighty Nut, a line of 4 powdered peanut butter options. The flavors come in original, flax & chia, vanilla, and chocolate. All flavors:

  • have 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter
  • 5 – 6g of protein
  • 1 – 1.5g fat
  • are great for spreads, dips, shakes, or baking

Since I am happily back on my workout game after struggling to find as much motivation the past couple weeks, I wanted to come up with a post-workout breakfast that would allow me to replenish the protein and carbs that I need after lifting ALL THE WEIGHTS.

Looking for a delicious snack or healthy breakfast? Check out this powdered peanut butter and chocolate protein oatmeal using Mighty Nut! The addition of protein powder plus the flax and chia from the Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter lead to a delicious, yet HEALTHY breakfast of champions! #ad

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Oatmeal

  • 1/4 cup cooked oats (I used steel cut)
  • 2 Tbsp Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter (flax and chia)
  • 4 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 Tbsp chocolate protein powder
  • drizzle of maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)
  1. I made a large batch of steel cut oats in the rice cooker (super easy recipe here) the night before and divided it into 4 containers. In the morning, I pulled out one of the containers, added about a Tbsp of water, then heated in microwave for 30 seconds.
  2. Add Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter, 3 Tbsp water, and protein powder. Microwave for another 30-45 seconds. If at any point the oatmeal is too dry for you, just add water in small amounts until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Mix together, add drizzle of maple syrup, and top with mini chocolate chips for an extra treat.

* If you want your oats to taste more like chocolate than peanut butter, simply increase the protein powder to 1 Tbsp and add slightly more water.

** You can also make this with regular oatmeal. Simply prepare your oatmeal as usual, then add in powders and sweetener and adjust liquid level accordingly.

BONUS

    I love powdered protein. I used to have a bottle of PB2…and loved it. Like you, I mostly consume Almond butter, but a powdered protein like this new PB & Co would be great to try!!

    I get my flax meal and chia seeds pretty regularly but not my chocolate fix. I would love the chocolate flavor!

  18. October 30, 2015 / 7:39 am

    I didn’t think I’d love this MightyNut as much as I do!! I’ve been mixing into my Greek yogurt, and it’s better than trying to stir in a huge chunky glob of PB hehe.
