Low Calorie PB&J Muffins

I just stumbled across the greatest invention the other day! PB2! I am obsessed with peanut butter and have always dreamed of a lower calorie, all natural, delicious peanut butter! I was skeptic at first, something like this is to good to be true (45 calories for 2 tablespoons)! Well I ripped open the greatest invention ever when I got home and it smelled like peanuts, it tasted like peanuts. Yup, it was delicious! I knew I had to remake my PB&J muffins that I just recently made! 

Low Calorie PB&J Muffins
1 3/4 cup oat flour (blend oatmeal)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup PB2
1/4 cup sucanat or brown sugar
1/4 cup stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 egg whites
1 cup vanilla yogurt (I used plain non fat yogurt with 20 drops of vanilla stevia or to taste)
1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil (or oil of choice)
1 cup raspberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line muffin tins with liners. Spray muffin liners with nonstick cooking spray so the muffins come out of the paper easily or spray muffin tin very well with nonstick spray. Combine vanilla, egg whites, and yogurt in bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients (dry ingredients) except raspberries in a seperate bowl; stir yogurt mixture just until blended. Gently stir in raspberries. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin liners and bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
 Yields: 12 muffins

What is PB2? 
We call it peanut butter’s second generation because it’s unlike any peanut butter you’ve ever experienced. Through a unique process that doesn’t involve the use of any chemicals and doesn’t alter nature’s intended balance found within the peanut, we remove over 85% of the fat from premium quality peanuts. Essentially, the oil is squeezed out of roasted peanuts and what remains is our famous powdered peanut butter – all natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. When you mix water or a favorite drink with PB2 you get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter, with all the roasted peanut flavor, but 85% less fat calories.
