PB2 Poppers

These little guys are awesome treats made from one of my favorite products, PB2!

Low fat, and tastes like a truffle! WOW

They are so simple to make, and so delicious! I just can’t stop popping them!

For this recipe you will need:

-1/2 cup of PB2- peanut butter powder. (I used the kind with cocoa, but regular works too)
-1/3 cup of water
-1/2 cup of low fat graham cracker crumbs (I made my own by crushing in a freezer bag)
-2 tablespoons of oats

THAT’S IT!

Start by mixing your PB2 with water to make peanut butter. We want this a little thicker so the ratio is different. Normally with PB2 and water you do 1:1. So add less water to make it easier to form into poppers πŸ™‚

Mix this up good

It’ll look like this when mixed

Like a thick pudding

Next add your graham crackers to the bowl

Graham crackers… yum

Mix this up good

It’ll start to form a dough

Now add the oats

2 tablespoons of oats

And mix these in

Almost done

All that’s left to do is roll these into small balls or poppers!

A little larger than a quarter

You can either refrigerate these overnight or pop them in the freezer for 20 minutes and enjoy right away. I keep them on wax paper.

PB2 Poppers! M for Minnie!

Makes about 15-16 poppers. Keep what you don’t eat in the fridge!

UPDATE! Nutritional info for one PB2 Popper: 42.5 calories 0.75 grams of fat, 7.9 grams of carbs, 2 grams of protein. MUCH better than a Godiva Truffle which can be 6-8 grams of fat a piece and over 120 calories.

So good for a midnight snack or after morning coffee πŸ˜‰

Happy eating…

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,

    I can hardly wait to try the poppers. Any idea of the nutritional value? I’m a weight watcher so we do try to count points. Thanks

    • Sorry, I’m not good at always calculating nutritional value because I’m not big on counting calories! But I realize other people do. I’ll do it and update! πŸ™‚

    • UPDATED! Each Popper has: 42.5 calories, 0.75 grams of fat, 7.9 grams of carbs, 2 grams of protein. What a steal! πŸ™‚

    • Peg, I just plugged ingredients in for smart points and if you make 15 poppers from the recipe, each one is 1 smart point!

  2. Why not add some protein powder to pump up the healthy stats? Wonder what the carbs are with the graham cracker crumbs in there?

    • You could certainly do that. I chose not to with this recipe to keep the calories under 50 with some carbs in there. Plus, protein powder will dry out recipes faster and make them dense, so I choose not to put it in all my recipes.

  3. I made these tonight. So tasty! I didn’t have a full 1/2cup of graham cracker crumbs, so I added coconut flour to make up the difference. Yum!

  4. Is there a good sub for the graham cracker?

    • The graham cracker was used to get it a S’mores taste. Any carb will do. Ground oats, some coconut flour, you could even do ground almonds or flax meal!

    I just made these and they’re the bomb and so easy.Being in Australia we don’t have the graham crackers so i had to use digestive buscuits

  6. i tried this recipe, but used flax seed meal instead of graham cracker crumbs since I’m cutting carbs…but they were not good. πŸ™
