I have always called myself a Peanut butter snob haha, I grew up in Canada and it was Kraft PB at our house or nothing! I always turned my nose up at the thoughts of the powdered peanut butter known as PB2 but I finally decided I would give it a try in some baking recipes as I know it can keep the points down. This peanut butter chocolate chip pumpkin loaf was so good, the PB snob in me was saying the real deal would have been better lol but as a low point alternative this loaf came out delicious! Serves 10 at 4 smart points per serving on WW freestyle.
