Ohhh yeah, a low-calorie peanut butter!  Finally, one that isn’t full of sucralose, artificial coloring and imitation food flavorings (I’m looking at you Walden Farms and Better’n Peanut Butter)

You can have two servings for the price of one.  This recipe is low calorie, low fat, sugar free, low carb, high protein and vegan to boot.

  1. Great recipe! Based on my obsession with PB and how much I eat, I need this recipe in my life hahaha!

    • Melissa @ Nourish by Melissa-
      HAHA, I know same here! Someone got me a jar of peanut butter on Valentine’s day and it was completely gone by the next week. Hence, the need for this lower calorie version 😉
      Peanut butter is just tooooo good!

  2. where to you find peanut flour? I have looked at Whole foods but they don’t seem to have it

  3. How long is the shelve (refrigerator) life? This sounds yummy..would like to try.

    • Mimi-
      Yeah, this recipes makes a preeeetty large batch so feel free to cut it in half:
      1+1/4 cups Unsweetened Soy Milk (or milk of choice)
      1/2 tsp Stevia Extract
      45g (6 tbs) Peanut Flour
      1/8 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
      320g (1+1/4 cups) Natural Peanut Butter

      This PB keeps pretty well as far as I’m concerned, as long as it’s refrigerated (I’ve had it in my fridge for about a week and a half). I think it mostly depends on the kind of milk you use. The soy milk carton I used says to “use within 7-14 days of opening,” but of course, it usually lasts longer. I wouldn’t leave it in the fridge for longer than a couple months, though. I made a big batch because I go through PB like it’s my job and I’m making some recipes for friends 😉
      Hope this helps!

  4. Do you think peanut flour can be made by processing peanuts until finely ground (like how almond flour is made)?

    • Christine-
      Peanut flour is a little different than ground peanuts. Peanut flour is defatted so it is lower in fat and higher in fiber/protein. If you were to replace the peanut flour with ground peanuts, the nutritional value would be almost the same as regular peanut butter… so it might just be extra work grinding nuts to achieve the same product. However, you can give it a try if you want! 🙂

  5. This sounds and looks delicious. I generally make my own pb from grinding plain roasted peanuts in the food processor, but this sounds like a fun change. How long would you guess it keeps in the fridge?

    • Jelli-
      The peanut butter keeps pretty well as long as it’s sealed tightly and kept in the fridge. I know that this recipe makes a BIIIIG big batch… I used this PB for recipe development so I went through it faster than the average person. For this reason I’m not sure how long it lasts, but I would base the time on the “milk” you use. The soy milk carton I used says to “use within 7-14 days of opening,” but of course, it usually lasts longer. I wouldn’t leave this in the fridge for longer than a month or two.
      If you wish to halve the recipe, here it is:
      1+1/4 cups Unsweetened Soy Milk (or milk of choice)
      1/2 tsp Stevia Extract
      45g (6 tbs) Peanut Flour
      1/8 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
      320g (1+1/4 cups) Natural Peanut Butter

      Hope this helps!

  7. Can you use this peanut butter in the fudgy protein bars recipe?

    • Jane-
      WOW, great idea!! I’m sure it will work out just fine, this Double Peanut Butter pretty much has the same texture and moisture level as regular peanut butter 🙂
      Hope you like the protein bars!

    Hi, I can’t find peanut flour in my country, and buy it’s really expensive for me and when the talk comes to a (healthier) peanut butter, which is important for me as oxygen (maybe more)..oh,I can’t wait that long!:D So, maybe it would work with Besan or other flour?buckwheat?almond?(of course, I understand that this recipe is called ,,Double Peanut butter” not ,,Peanut butter with surprise” , but I believe that peanuts have a strong enough flavor and other flour couldn’t drown it, at least in small quantities,or am I backsliding from reality too far?) Or maybe,I’m not so naive believing that if I dehydrated the pulp after making the peanut milk I could make the (at least a bit)defatted peanut flour?You know like with homemade coconut flour. Is it possible?
    P.S Your blog is great, thank You for all Your (tasty) works!:))
    P.P.S I’ve just noticed that I’ve really gone nuts for nuts, good that they are worth it:D

    • Peanut_For_Peanut-
      Haha, I can totally relate to your PB obsession!
      Unfortunately, peanut flour can’t be replaced in this recipe. It absorbs a lot of liquid so the PB stays thick, and it doesn’t require any cooking/baking like buckwheat flour and some other flours. Without the peanut flour, this PB won’t taste very good… it might be kind of bland. The 2 cups of milk drain out some flavor, so the peanut flour helps bring it back 🙂
      Instead of omitting the peanut flour completely, you can try using less and adding some coconut flour to thicken, since coconut flour thickens really well too 🙂
      I hope the substitution works out for you!!

  9. I used Almond Flour; I couldn’t find peanut and I was dying to try the recipe. It worked well and is absolutely amazing. I keep it in the fridge so it is still think yet creamy. How long is the jar good to keep? We go through peanut butter pretty fast, but I don’t want it to go rancid.

    • Carlen-
      Wow, I’m surprised the almond flour worked! I’ve always thought that peanut flour is way more absorbent than almond flour, but I guess I was wrong!
      As long as this peanut butter is tightly sealed and stored in the refrigerator, it should keep pretty well… probably ~2 weeks. Just make sure to use a brand new bottle of soy milk so it keeps as long as possible.
      Hope this helps!

  10. Himalayan Salt

    Damn, thanks so much for posting this! It is going to be so helpful when I order Himalayan Salt at the market! So Terrific!

  11. Can i use liquid sweetener instead of stevia extract?

    • Linus-
      I haven’t tried using a liquid sweetener in this recipe but I’m sure it would work out just fine! Raw honey or pure maple syrup sound absolutely delicious 🙂
      I would recommending using about 3/4 cup of a liquid sweetener of your choice. Give it a taste and add more if you feel it needs it. You might also want to keep some extra peanut flour on hand. The liquid sweetener might make the PB a little drippy so you’ll need a few more tablespoons of peanut flour to thicken it up.
      I hope you like the recipe!!

  12. Great idea! I have been lightening up peanut butter in a similar way by doing half PB2 and half regular PB! Looks yummy! I’ll have to try it with milk instead of water!

  13. how long do you cook it and at what temperature?

  14. Hey Jess! Just read you say same PB “half the calories, half the fat” but how can that be if your using a large amount of peanut butter+peanut flour. I would looove to make this, just dont understand the concept. THANKS! XoXo

  16. Are you sure it’s only 90 calories per serving? I just can’t believe it since it tastes so good. I mean with servings and all could it only be 90 calories?

    • Aimee-
      Yup, I calculated the nutrition for this recipe about 3 times just to be sure 😉
      Of course, the number can vary depending on the brand of peanut butter you use (I’ve seen some jars of peanut butter with as low as 180 calories to 210 calories per serving [2 tbs]), as well as what milk you use (unsweetened almond milk has 30 calories per cup while the soy milk I used has 70).

  17. is peanut powder the same as peanut flour? 

  18. how many servings does this recipe make?

  19. I just made this and it’s SO good! I love it! I put it on a protein brownie with some ice cream!
