peanut butter cookie bars
Peanut flour was an impulse buy, but I had no idea what to do with it. I was finally inspired to experiment with it.
Stir the following ingredients in a bowl:
1/2 cup peanut flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
In a separate bowl, mix together
3/4 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup okara
1/3 cup canola oil
1/4 cup soy milk
2 tsp. vanilla
I used a whisk but an electric hand-held mixer might have been a better choice.
Thoroughly combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
Lightly spray some vegetable oil onto an 8"x8" pan and pour the batter inside, spreading evenly.
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
over the surface and lightly press them down into the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-35 minutes. (I'll narrow that cooking time down the next time I make these and edit this entry to reflect that.)
