For some reason I have been craving Peanut Butter and I'm looking for lower calorie alternatives. So far I have found Peanut Butter Built Bars (protein/candy bars) at 170 calories and Julian Bakery ProGranola Peanut Butter Cluster at 110 calories for half a cup.

Any other suggestions?

PB2 is a good option.

Peanutbutter is not that bad. Just eat it of the spoon. You won't eat that much.

Or peanuts.

I echo the PB2 (or PBFit - or any of those powdered peanut butters). It isn't quite the same when you reconstitute it with Water to make a paste - but it'll do in a pinch. But I usually just mix it in with things - like yogurt or chocolate Protein Shakes - then it's OK!

These are tasty when you just need that Sweet chocolate Peanut Butter fix😋. Cheapest by the case on Amazon...decent shelf life. Handy when stuck away from home and need some Protein.

I find that if PB is warm and gooey, it spreads really good and I don't need as much. I like it on a toasted chaffle! It's also good swirled into some greek yogurt!

Bad artificial sweetener, maltitol and maltitol Syrup. Proven to raise blood sugar. Find something with sweetener that doesn't raise blood sugar. Rise in blood sugar releases insulin which then stores unused glucose in fat. Not good for WLS people.

Yes, they’re not an every day item by any means, meaning a case will last you a year. I have never had high blood sugar issues, for me it’s the reverse—frequent low blood sugar. With the Protein and Fiber in these it helps offset a blood sugar spike. For something to offset low blood sugar, these really are purse handy when away from home. And not such that you’d ever want more than one.😊
