Healthy DYI Peanut Butter Cups, MightyNut Review and Giveaway

Homemade Healthy Peanut Butter Cups Title Image
I received (2) two bottles of  Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter to facilitate this review, recipe and giveaway in partnership with SweatPink. All opinions and recipe are my own.

With a vegan daughter in the house, we use a lot of nuts and seeds as a source of healthy fats and protein. And though the fat from nuts and seeds is the good kind of fat, I don’t mind cutting back whenever I can do so without compromising on flavor and other nutrients.

That’s why I was excited to sample these new Mighty Nut  powdered peanut butters fromPeanut Butter & Co.

About Mighty Nut Powdered peanut Butter

Peanut Butter & Co just launched Mighty Nut, their new powdered peanut butter! Each batch of Mighty Nut is created from quality USA grown peanuts. The peanuts are roasted, then pressed, to remove most of the fat.  What remains is protein, fiber and delicious peanut buttery taste.

These powdered peanut butters come in four scrumptious varieties:

  • Original
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Flax & Chia

I received the original and the chia and flaxseed version which I loved!  These peanut butters are based on 3 simple ingredients:

  • peanuts
  • dried cane syrup
  • salt

They can be rehydrated with water or your choice of milk to make a creamy spread that is perfect to stuff celery sticks or generously spooned onto apple or other fruit slices.

I found Mighty Peanut Butter to be easy to use and rich in flavor and I certainly did not miss the fat. I tend to make my own nut butters but did not feel as though  I was compromising on flavor or nutrients.  Mighty Nut peanut butter is also fabulous in smoothies.  I made a few varieties that were delicious!

Have you ever paired peanut butter with persimmons?  Yum!

Of course a smoothie with half a banana, two scoops of Mighty Nut and a little raw cacao is scrumptious for breakfast or snack.. Add a little kale or spinach and you’ve got a fabulous pick me up!

Because Mighty Nut Peanut butters are dehydrated they are easy to pack for a healthy snack on a hike or camping trip. 🙂

I love making chocolaty treats no matter what time of year and I could not resist trying my hand at homemade chocolate peanut butter cups with these healthy peanut butters. After all if I can make my treats a little healthier I’m a happy mom!!

I used dark chocolate (my favorite) and these peanut butter cups came out so scrumptious I barely had time to snap a couple of photos before they were gobbled up by the goblins in my home.

These are so simple to make I’ll be whipping up a few more batches this weekend.
