1 Peanut Flour

How it’s made: Peanut flour is formed by grinding roasted peanuts into a paste, then pressing out most of the oil to leave behind a low-carb powdery substance. Compared to traditional all-purpose flour, you’ll go nuts for peanut flour after reading more about the nutrients within.

Nutrition perk: This gluten-free flour is low in fat calories but still a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, and iron. In fact, a mere quarter-cup serving provides only 3 grams of fat. So if you’re a bit more conscious of your fat intake at the moment, peanut flour provides an excellent boost of nuttiness without the excess calories.

Need to know: Once opened, peanut flour should be refrigerated to maintain its freshness. It can also be stashed in the freezer for up to six months.

How to use it: Stir peanut flour into your morning oatmeal or whiz it into post-training shakes for an extra dose of nuttiness and protein. You can also incorporate it into pancake or waffle batter. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of regular flour, try swapping out half of it for peanut flour. You could also try it as a coating for chicken cutlets or as a replacement for breadcrumbs when making meatloaf and meatballs.
