National Peanut Butter Cookie Day
If it’s not already obvious from our products and blog posts, we LOVE peanut butter! Whether baked into desserts, mixed into marinades, or blended into smoothies, the more PB2 the better. Naturally, we celebrate any holiday that pays respects to our favorite flavor, including National Peanut Butter Cookie Day! On June 12, we will proudly fire up our ovens on and bake batch after batch of the best peanut butter cookie recipes we’ve collected over our years of cookie-testing research.
Although PB2 and traditional peanut butter are alike in flavor, there are a few reasons why we only bake with PB2! For one, all our powdered peanut butter products have more protein per serving with less fat and fewer calories. Depending on which variety of PB2 you’re using, you’ll find 4 to 6 grams of protein per 13-gram serving, 90% less fat, and 70% fewer calories than typical nut butter options. We don’t think you should have to sacrifice your nutritional goals to enjoy that classic peanut butter taste!
If you have advanced wellness needs, your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe can easily become a tasty pre-workout snack simply by adding in PB2 Performance! Not only does it deliver 20g of complete plant-based protein with only 190 calories and 4.5g of fat per serving, but it also has added prebiotic fiber to support digestive health.
To celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie day in style, we’ve rounded up all our top recipes that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Remember PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter can be a direct replacement for liquid nut butter options in any recipe. Simply measure out the required peanut butter and add the same amount of PB2 instead! Happy baking!
