FunFresh Foods review

I was recently send these new to me products by FunFresh Foods. I was sent the two peanut powders seen above by Dowd & Rogers. It comes in regular peanut flavor and cacao and peanut. One container ale for $7.27. Here is some information about this product: "Made from 100& non-GMO peanuts that are slow-roasted and expeller pressed to remove the oil. Blended with Raw Organic Cacao Powder. Contains 73% less calories and 92% less fat than conventional peanut butter. A tasty way to replace a high fat staple food."
This is my second experience with peanut powder. Some people like this mixed with water but I do not find it satisfying that way. How I do love it is mixed into a vegetable stir-fry. I add some garlic, onion powder, low-sodium soy sauce and some of this peanut powder. It is simple, nutritious and much lower calorie than regular peanut stir-fry using peanut butter.
Peanut Powder Cacao
The chocolate one is good mixed into hot oatmeal. I do think that it needs a bit of sweetness added though because it can be a bit bitter on its own. I think that this low calorie peanut powder is an excellent option for those who love peanut butter and are looking to cut fat and calories.

I was also sent some Italian chestnut flour which I had never heard of before. Here is the description of it: "Imported from Italy, our chestnut flour is full of sweet, nutty flavor. The perfect ingredient for adding flavor to all your baked goods. Replace up to one-third of the flour in your favorite recipes with chestnut flour. Unlike other nut flours, chestnut flour is remarkably low in fat and has a low glycemic index."

This is a great alternative to regular flour to add flavor to something like cookies. I am going to make peanut butter cookies using this flour this weekend and look forward to seeing how it turns out.

FunFresh Foods also carries many other products including tea, sweeteners, snacks and seasonings.
