I try to cook. I really do. Sometimes I even succeed. And other times? Well, we always keep some cans of soup on hand for dinner disasters.
I’m better at baking though. My gingerbread cookies are fabulous, and I make a mean pumpkin bread. I’ve baked souffles and pies and cheesecakes. Still, I’m always on the lookout for recipes with “easy” or “simple” in the title.
So when Mighty Nut asked me to try out their powdered peanut butter and to use it in a recipe, I hopped on the internet and searched for recipes that looked yummy and uncomplicated. And then I came across a recipe for no-bake cookies. “No-Bake” is even better than “easy” or “simple,” right?
Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter is part of the Peanut Butter & Co. family. Each batch of Mighty Nut is made with USA grown peanuts. The peanuts are roasted and pressed, which removes most of the fat but leaves the protein, fiber, and yummy peanut butter taste. Mighty Nut powdered peanut butter can be rehydrated, or it can be used for baking, cooking, or in smoothies.
Mighty Nut comes in 4 flavors: Original, Chocolate, Vanilla, and Flax & Chia.
All 4 flavors are:
- all natural
- gluten free
- dairy free
- lactose free
Mighty Nut Original, Chocolate and Flax & Chia are non-GMO verified. Non-GMO verification is pending for Mighty Nut Vanilla.
