Powdered Peanut Butter Cookies

After chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies are among the most recognizable sweet treats of all time. To make things even simpler, peanut butter powder can be substituted for the actual peanut butter in peanut butter cookies.

These are packed with peanut butter flavor without the fat of traditional peanut butter cookies, which are soft and chewy due to their high fat level. For those who are searching for a lighter take on traditional peanut butter cookies, peanut butter powder is a great substitute.

What Is Peanut Butter Powder?

Powdered peanut butter is created from roasted peanuts that have been de-oiled and then powdered into a fine powder. Some companies provide pure peanut butter powder, whilst others include salt or sugar.

Powdered peanut butter contains around 85% less fat than ordinary peanut butter, as most of the fat has been removed. This indicates that powdered peanut butter is predominantly composed of protein and fiber.

Cooking With Powdered Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is always a favorite of mine. I adore its flavor, texture, and the fact that it can be utilized in so many different ways. Peanut butter can also be used as a powder or blended with a liquid, such as water or milk, to make a tasty peanut butter spread.

To make 2 tbsp of rich peanut butter spread, combine 4 tbsp powdered peanut butter and 1 tbsp water. It will have the texture and flavor of traditional peanut butter, but without the fat.

I won’t lie and say it tastes better than the original, but the true value of peanut butter powder is in its capacity to blend with other components.

Because of its powdered nature, it can be used in a variety of ways. I use peanut butter powder in smoothies, porridge, or breading (such as peanut butter coated chicken), sauces and marinades, ice cream and cookies, and pies such as peanut butter banana pie.

There are various recipes that call for peanut butter powder, and some of them demand that some of the flour be removed.

You can use peanut butter powder instead of flour in some recipes, such as this one, but in others, you will simply swap 1/3 of the flour with peanut butter powder. There are numerous methods to use peanut butter powder, which is its main advantage over regular peanut butter in my opinion.

What Do These Cookies Taste Like?

The flavor of the peanut butter in these cookies is exquisitely matched. Because they are only prepared with peanut butter powder, you would initially think they will be overly flavorful and possibly a little too much, but trust me when I say they are just right.

Simply to give them a twist, I made these with a tiny dab of orange extract, and it works beautifully. You can substitute vanilla or even banana extract for orange extract. In terms of texture, these cookies have a mushy middle with a crispy, crunchy outer shell and edges. They possess all the qualities that make a good cookie.

Making The Cookies (Overview)

I mentioned at the outset that these are the simplest cookies to bake. They only need seven ingredients and a single mixing bowl to be ready to bake. To prepare these, begin by whisking together the liquid components with the sugar, then folding in the dry ingredients and shaping the dough into balls.

As with any cookie, I like to chill these in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking to let the flavors and ingredients to emerge. Form 2 tsp of the batter into a ball once the dough has chilled. Bake for 12 minutes after flattening each ball with a fork in a crisscross manner.
