Powdered Great Stuff vs Adam’s Natural Peanut Butter

Both GREAT options but powdered is better as far as calorie density goes!

Whenever I ever heard anyone talking about powdered peanut butter I always thought “yeah right, whatever… I don’t need that…” mainly because it was some fitness “guru” talking about how it saved their life or something silly. It’s not lifesaving unless maybe you throw it at a crazy dog that was chasing you that loves peanut butter! I WILL SAY that it is amazingly delicious and I’m beyond happy that I finally broke down and bought some. I buy this Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter and it is outrageously good! Besides loving the taste I really love that it miraculously only has 1.5 grams of fat per 2 Tablespoons versus 16 grams in regular peanut butter (or 45 calories vs 200 calories!) It does have some sugar in it but I’m not going to nitpick it – I’ve searched for sugar free and from what I can tell it doesn’t exist. 

note: in the comments below someone wrote “rolled oats have no nutrition.” Let me clear that up here for you as well as down there for them. Steel cut oats and rolled oats have virtually the same nutrition. You can look it up anywhere but I did this one for you. 
100 grams of steel cut oats has 386 calories, 7 grams of fat, 66 grams carbs, 11 grams fiber, 16 grams protein, 45.5 mg calcium and 4.1 mg iron. 
100 grams of rolled oats has 379 calories, 7 grams fat, 69 grams carbs, 10 grams fiber, 13 grams protein, 52 mg calcium and 4.3 grams iron. 
Plus they have other vitamins and minerals that I don’t have to compare here because I’m sure you see the point from this – steaming and rolling a grain does not take away the nutritional value so eat up my lovelies! Oats are good for you be it steel cut or rolled!
