Peanut Flour Power

Peanut Flour Power

Disclaimer: Again, I was not monetarily paid to write this review. This review is based on the products and information I received from MyOatmeal.com. All opinions are my own.

When I reviewed my oatmeal packets from MyOatmeal.com a few weeks ago, I did not mention that they also threw in a bag of PB Lean for me to try. Just like my hefty oatmeal bags, this bag was full to the brim:

PB Lean

According to the nutritional stats, 12 grams of the flour is 45 calories. Hard to see, but it’s obviously also packed with protein as well.

The first thing I did was mix it in with Greek yogurts of various flavors.

Delicious Yogurt Combos

My favorite combination was with a blueberry Greek yogurt. Surprisingly, the peanut flavor was prominent but it complemented the blueberry fruit preserves nicely. Almost like a blueberry-flavored peanut butter? Is that possible :P?

Another fun dairy mix was with Kefir. Peanut butter smoothie, anyone?

PB Kefir

Mixed with a good amount of water (more for a liquid consistency, less for a spread consistency), it made the perfect sauce over fruit.

It’s even great on English muffins without fruit for back-up.

With the discovery of an empty chocolate peanut spread jar, it was OIAJ time. I took the opportunity to mix PB Lean with some oats, add water, microwaved for about a minute and thirty seconds, and take a quick picture before scooping it all in into the (almost) empty jar.

Prep for OIAJ

It actually turned into an oat cake of sorts, since PB Lean probably acted as a binding agent.

Speaking of cake, the PB Lean was a great ingredient in my weekend morning muffins:

Blueberry and Cherry Peanutty Muffins
(makes 8 servings)

Dry Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup of flour
  • 1/3 cup peanut flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup of diced blueberries and cherries
  • One egg
  • 2 oz. butter or olive oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • Vanilla (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix dry ingredients separately in a bowl.
  2. Melt the butter in microwave, and cool.
  3. Mix egg, milk, sugar, vanilla, butter, and stir well.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, blending. Don’t overwork.
  5. Add more milk to get to desired consistency (pourable, thick like a waffle batter)
  6. Pour into muffin pan (spray Pam into paper muffin cups).
  7. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes, or until it passes toothpick test.

We only made six muffins, so with the leftover batter, we experimented with a microwave cake.

A funny observation was that we noticed either the muffins had all blueberries, or all cherries. There wasn’t a balanced mix :P! I lucked out with the all-cherry muffins though ;).

What’s your favorite way to use peanut flour?

    1. This website sells it as PB Lean, but there are other peanut flour brands out there as well. I believe Trader Joe’s used to make one (not sure if they do anymore) and there is also a brand called PB2

  1. As I was scrolling down I was wondered if you’d have any peanut flour left to bake with. Haha! Seriously, you used it on some awesome stuff. Peanut butter and english muffins are one of my favorite combinations so that was a good choice. As does your OIAJ turned oat cake 🙂

    Those muffins turned out really great! They look moist (is it okay to use that word? 😉 ) and chocked full of berries. I bet a jam filling with peanut flour muffins would taste amazing… Kind of like PBJ!

  2. I think this stuff would make such a decadent smoothie! Throw in some chocolate and banana and it would pretty much be a Reeses PB Cup 🙂 Thanks for the review! I hadn’t heard of MyOatmeal but am so going to check it out- ugh there I go again with the online shopping haha!

  3. Ahhh I LOVE peanut flour! It’s awesome on baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon. I have yet to put in oatmeal, but that sounds absolutely fantastic! It also makes a wonderful apple dip 🙂

    1. I think you would love it in a bowl of oatmeal.
      You’re right! It would taste amazing with baked sweet potatoes and cinnamon—yum!

  4. LOVE peanut flour! I have to stop myself from ordering it all the time or I’d go broke haha. It’s the best though, and I love that it works so well in savory and sweet dishes.

    I think my favorite way to use it is in place of flour in some vegan banana bread…especially with dark chocolate chips!

  5. I’ve been wanting to try peanut flour for ages, but due to no reviews or understanding of what is was, I’ve been too scared! IT looks amazing! And girl, don’t worry about posts like this. I LOVE your reviews and would 100% support you if you were compensated as well!

  6. I’ve never had peanut flour before…mostly because peanuts and I don’t get along too well, unfortunately.

    Looks delicious…everything! I wish I could eat nuts. 🙁

    1. I am 99.999% sure you would love it too :)! You would probably get pretty crafty with your peanut flour recipes too!
