Restaurants have been using peanut flour for years. High in protein, this gluten free flour is used in soups, breads, cookies, sauces, breading and batters. Now home cooks can find this versatile ingredient at Trader Joe’s nationwide and at Harvey’s Supermarkets in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina thanks to the folks at The National Peanut Board.
They sent me a bag of peanut flour and a link to their website where they have a plethora of recipes using peanut flour. The recipes cover breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks, soups, cookies, sauces, entrees, side dishes, you name it. It’s all pretty mind-boggling and tempting. I can’t wait to try them out. I may forego the peanut butter pancakes but the peanut shrimp chowder sounds yummy and the peanut chocolate chip muffin tops are on my list.
Peanut flour would be a wonderful addition to your pantry. Use it as a substitute for other flours or let your imagination run wild. Let us know the results. I’ll be posting my own results as I use this nifty new ingredient.
