Powdered peanut butter? Yes, have some!

So a while back I discovered PB2 powdered peanut butter made by Bell Plantation on  I held off ordering some because I just wasn't sure if I was willing to try it.  Well, I finally got some and I LOVE it!!  It has all the oil sucked out of it so it has 85% less fat and calories than regular peanut butter!!  First I tried it reconstituted and was pleasantly surprised at the taste and texture of it (though I used just a touch more water than they suggest on the package).  I can't even take credit for Zane's idea to try making peanut butter cookies with it but I can completely take credit for the following recipe!!

1 tsp. baking powder

1/3 c. PB2 powdered peanut butter
1 1/2 c. Hershey's mini hugs
