I got onto this bandwagon after I randomly spotted it at Trader Joe's and was hoping to use it as a vegan protein powder. Made out of unsalted, ground-up peanuts only, it is high in protein and healthy fats. When I realized the whole protein shake thing wasn't happening, I started putting it in my oatmeal instead of peanut butter. This saved me from destroying jars of peanut butter in a short time yet still have the peanutty tastes in my oats.
Then, the peanut flour could no longer be found. I had to order three bags online. While I haven't used it for baking yet, I did use it for microwave "cakes."
Okay, so these don't taste like cake, but it does turn oats and a few other things into something bread-like. My normal concoction was:
1/3 c. oats (instant or old-fashioned work fine)
1/4 c. egg whites (leftover from THIS incident)
1/4 c. peanut flour
1/2 Tbsp flax seeds (I know ground flax is better, but this is what I have at the moment)
1/2 tsp cinnamon, or pumpkin pie spice
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp carob powder (if desired)
1/2 scoop of Amazing Meal (if desired... just trying to use it up)
1/4 c. non-dairy milk
Combine the dry ingredients with the milk. The oats should be wet but not runny. The runnier the "batter" gets, the more fluffy and moist the end-product will be. Adjust to your tastes.
Microwave on high for about 2 minutes.
Here's the end result. I am bad and sometimes eat this with a bit of butter, cream cheese, or peanut butter.
I even made a variation with pumpkin If you add pumpkin, decrease the egg white and milk a little bit.
So, if you're tiring of oatmeal and want another way to get those cholesterol-wipers into your system, this could be a viable option...
