Gluten Free Peanut Flour

With at least one jar of peanut butter in 90 percent of homes, it’s fair to say that Americans love the taste of peanuts and peanut butter. But what if you could increase the impressive protein content and other beneficial nutrients, lower the amount of mostly good fats and still keep that great peanut flavor?

Gluten-free peanut flour may be the answer.

This healthy, all-natural flour is made by grinding peanuts and removing most of the oil, resulting in a nutrient-dense food that has more than twice the protein of all-purpose flour.

Not only does peanut flour have impressive nutritionals* and great flavor, you can use it to pump up your meals and snacks 24/7. Here are a few ideas and recipes:
