PBFit Recipe and Review – Halfway-Homemade Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

I’d never tried PBFit before and was offered a free sample to test. All opinions are my own, but the recipe is yours to share.

Y’all, these are so good that The Beast barked at them for a solid 2 minutes because he wanted a bite.  Or 12. Or the whole pan.

 

It’s a good thing he’s supervised because we all know chocolate is bad for doggos, but delicious for humans.

What’s even better than how good they taste is how easy they are to make, and yet, they seem so fancy. And… they’re less fat than if you used regular peanut butter. Score!

Okay, pick yourself up off the floor and pay attention. This will go quickly. (Printable version at the bottom of the page)

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Ghiradelli Triple Fudge Brownie mix (you can substitute any brownie mix, but Ghiradelli mixes are my favorite.)
  • ¼ water
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup + ¼ cup PB Fit (I actually used the Pumpkin Spice flavor of PB Fit because it’s fall and I’m extra.)
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 3 – 5 Tablespoons milk

Instructions:

For the brownies –

  • Prepare the brownie mix per the instructions on the box, adding ¼ cup of the PB Fit to the mix.
  • Bake as directed on the box.

For the frosting –

  • Mix the sugar, butter, PBFit, and 3 Tablespoons of the milk. If you’d like a fluffier frosting, gradually add in more milk.

*Note* this makes a lot of frosting. I suggest also making a batch of cupcakes to use the rest of it up. Sneak in the PBFit to your cake batter too. It’s amazing!

I bet you’re asking me right now:  

What is PBFit, and why aren’t you using real peanut butter?

PBFit is real peanut butter powder that you can use in recipes like the one above, smoothies and milkshakes, and even breakfast foods like pancakes, waffles, and bread. You can also add water to it to make it into peanut butter.

And why would you want to do that instead of pre-bought peanut butter? PBFit is all-natural, gluten-free, and 90% less fat and 1/3 the calories of peanut butter. So, there you have it: These are diet brownies that don’t skimp on taste!

Alright, they probably don’t qualify as “diet” brownies, but I’m of the camp who drinks a diet drink with my burger because cutting calories anywhere helps.

If you haven’t tried PBFit, do it! It’s so easy and so much less messy than adding real peanut butter to your recipes.

Enjoy!

Yield: Enough for two brownie pans!
