This is what I get for reading those darn recipes in Parade. They recently had a recipe for "Elvis' Favorite Banana Bread" that required "peanut butter powder". Apparently you can get it thru Amazon. Have you worked with this stuff? It sounds disgusting!! Can't you just sub in REAL peanut butter? Any info welcome.

PB2 is one brand and should be available in most stores. Have not tried it yet but a friend of mine puts it in her smoothies and says it great.

It's basically reconstructed peanut butter in powder form.

They sell it by the drum at Costco, but I wonder - Elvis' momma made him those sandwiches, and how on earth did she get ahold of powdered peanut butter?

Regular peanut butter has 200 cals per tablespoon. PB2 has 45. So if you are trying to cut calories it is the way to go. It is not bad, don't expect the real deal. You reconstitute it with water and make a paste if you want a type of peanut butter. It tastes better with jelly or fruit spread. I doubt Elvis' momma used powdered peanut butter but I bet he liked the peanut butter goodies she made for him!

It wasn't his mother, it was his housekeeper/cook who made those sandwiches.

Elvis loved food, and encountered that type of sandwich while performing on the road. A CO restaurant made a PB&J and bacon "heel" sandwich (a hollowed-out loaf). His housekeeper, Mary Langston, tried to duplicate it, with suggestions from his dad. Ms. Langston finally came up with a hit, frying it in plenty of butter.

Elvis loved it, and he loved her, too. He famously gifted her a few cars and a house during her employ. She continued to work at Graceland long after his death, too.

And she didn't use powdered peanut butter lol.
