I was wondering if anyone had any general opinions about using Peanut Flour in their soylent recipes?
something like- http://proteinplusflour.com/our-products/roasted-peanut-flour
I’ve currently been making a diy-soylent based on the Hackerschool recipe and using it mostly as a meal replacement for breakfast/lunch and started looking for ways to add a bit of variety in the flavor. I came across some mentions of powdered peanut butter and peanut flour and thought that using some to replace a bit of the oat flour may be a nice combination taste-wise with the cocoa. I haven’t seen much discussion of using this ingredient yet (but I do see some folks blending in scoops of regular peanut butter).
Looking at the nutrition info it seems a good fit since it adds protein/carbs/fiber.
It does also have a bit of fat but I figure I can cut back on some of the olive oil to counter that (and I’ll tweak the protein powder and other ingredients to try and even things out there too) Thought I’d start by swapping in 20g and decreasing the oat flour and some of the protein powder.
So does anyone have positive and/or negative views regarding use of Peanut Flour? Any reasons to avoid it at all? Anyone else currently using it? (I’m also looking into coconut flour but thought I’d try out the peanut flour first because I think the taste would be good)
thanks for any feedback
