Peanut flour is gluten-free. It is simply roasted peanuts ground up into a flour. No other ingredients are added.
Since peanuts are gluten-free, peanut flour is a great choice to use for baking.
Peanut flour can also be used in smoothies, added to yogurt or to thicken sauces & soups.
To see an example of how to use peanut flour, make sure to check out this recipe for Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies used as the base for ice cream sandwiches.
Peanut flour is lower in carbohydrates than other gluten-free flours, such as potato starch, tapioca starch or rice flour, so it would work nicely for those trying to watch their carbohydrate intake.
Peanut flour can be found at Trader Joe's in their baking aisle. There are two Trader Joe's locations in the Columbus area - one is located on Sawmill Rd in Dublin and the other is located at Easton.
