FitNutz Peanut Butter

fit_nutz_lg

Let's talk NUTS. The edible kind and people in the news.

Chris & Lisa have pursued peanut butter alternatives through the years the way "Balloon Boy's" parents pursue media attention... it's a constant chase and there's NOTHING we won't try in an effort to get our fix.

Peanut Butter is, after all, the ULTIMATE in satisfying comfort foods, and lower-fat choices are a weight watchers' holy grail.

We've long written off regular PB. The consequences for a heaping dreamy spoonful are huge. As in huge badonka-donk butt. There are companies out there who have pioneered healthier mixtures and methods, and though we've pretty much sampled them all, Skinny Scoopers just found THE BEST.

Yes, FitNutz™ is one worth SCOOPIN' on these pages & in our kitchen. At only ONE POINT per serving, this mix offers delicious and natural peanut butter goodness for 91% less fat and 74% fewer calories than traditional picks. There is one reason in particular this new find has become the chunky-monkey on our backs...  this is the only powdered brand we've found that offers a crazy-good CRUNCHY option. Enjoying Chunky PB without becoming chunky? YAHOO to that!

Here's how it works. Using a special process, the oil is removed from fresh & wholesome peanuts, leaving behind only the good stuff.... tasty & protein-packed peanut powder. The FitNutz folks then package it up in a handy little bag & ship it your way. Now it's up to you to make the magic happen. Rehydrate it with water to use it as a spread, blend it in with smoothies, whip-up some peanut butter cookies... the possibilities are endless! Some of the best uses we've seen came from actual FitNutz customers. Talk about inventive... click here to check those ideas out. 

Beyond the great stats on fat & calories, Lisa loves FitNutz for it's natural peanut butter taste. Chris, on the other hand was raised on horrifically sugared-up versions of peanut butter as a kid, so she likes to mix it up with a little Truvia natural sweetener. Spread on apples or high fiber bread it's a TWO-POINT, protein filled, to-die-for treat!

The company brands this goody as "Guilt free Peanut Butter enjoyment"... we say that's an understatement. Perhaps "Insanely Addictive Deliciousness that Won't Result in Big Fat Thighs or Bingo Arms that Flap in the Wind" is another marketing angle they might want to consider. Too long of a tagline maybe? Either way, they passed our rigorous taste & quality test and were invited to be an advertising partner here on Skinny Scoopers. So, order away with these awesome folks who get the Skinny Scoopers Seal of Approval, and make sure you look for your chance to win some free samples from FitNutz in the coming days on our Facebook & Twitter pages and in our HUGE year-end giveaway!

Whether you go nutz for the crunchy stuff or are more of a smooth operator, you can order your preferred blend directly from the FitNutz website by clicking here. This awesome product is available in Regular or Chunky, and they even have a "PRO' formulation for you gym rats who might be looking for some essential fatty acids in the mix. Only one POINT more per serving!

I have tried the Chunky FitNutz and, instead of adding water, I hydrated the powder with agave nectar. YUMMMMY! It's my new favorite PB! It's peanut butter turned sweet and it's good for you too. Spread it on a 1-point English muffin or bagel and you have a most satisfying 3-point snack. Thanks, Christa and Lisa!

Robin, we addressed your question below... the "3rd Party" is Paypal... it doesn't get much more secure than that!

Sounds like you can shop with confidence & enjoy ; )

(Robin's Question) ok- I am leery of ordering it on line since they just said a 3rd party could read this information~ any idea where this might sell in stores?? thanks!

Hi Robin. Lisa here. I searched their site for stores and it's available in Utah, Florida and New Jersey. I say get it shipped to your door. I LOVE opening packages from FedEx and UPS. It feels like Christmas! :) hee hee

I tried the sampler packets. The smooth and the chunky. They both had a bitter taste to it. I did not like it at all. I still like the Bell Plantation PB2 you had written about in an earlier article. That was really good.

Betty. I have tried them both too. My trick is to add a packet of Truvia to the Fitnutz it when I blend. I love the fact that it comes in chunky. It's absolutely a staple in my cupboard.
