Eat Mighty! Mighty Nut Recipes and Giveaway

4 Comments

I love peanut butter! It is actually my weakness! It is an easy way to add extra protein into my diet and it tastes delicious in shakes, dips, baked goods, oatmeal, and just about anything else you can think of! The peanut butter lover in me was so excited when I was given the opportunity to test out and create recipes using the Peanut Butter & Co’s powdered peanut butter, MightyNut. 

So what is Might Nut? Peanut Butter & Co just launched Mighty Nut, their new powdered peanut butter! Mighty Nut is made with only USA grown peanuts and is non-GMO verified (Mighty Nut vanilla is in the process of non-GMO verification). The peanuts are roasted, then pressed, to remove most of the fat.  What remains is protein, fiber and delicious peanut buttery taste.  It’s all natural, vegan, dairy free, and gluten free.   Each serving contains 5-6g of protein, 1.5g of fat and has 85% less calories than traditional peanut butter!! This is a great way to enjoy the taste of peanut butter without the added calories or fat.

I had a lot of fun creating delicious breakfast, lunch and snack recipes  with the Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter.  Here are some of my favorites:

Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats

The whole family will love this fruit dip! Even my picky 3 year old gobbles this up and my 7 year old eats it by the spoonful! It’s the perfect after school snack and can be easily packed in your child’s lunch box along with fruits such as apple slices, strawberries, pears, bananas and more.  Give it a try!

Peanut Butter and Yogurt Fruit Dip

  • Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

  • 1 container of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt ( I use Chobani Simply 100 Greek yogurt)
  • 1 Tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp Mighty Nut Original powdered peanut butter

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Use a mixer to blend the ingredients and transfer to a serving bowl.  Enjoy with your favorite fresh fruit. Store remaining dip in the refrigerator.

Tip: I would double the recipe if you are planning on making this dip to bring to a party! It will be gone quickly and everyone will be asking for more!
