Healthy and Delicious Peanut Flour and Gluten-free Dinner Recipes
According to the National Peanut Board, peanut flour is not only gluten-free, but is also very low in saturated fat and cholesterol, which makes it a nutritious substitute for traditional flours.
It adds flavor and texture to a dish, but more importantly, adds key nutrients that people on a gluten-free diet need, including folate, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, niacin and manganese. Regardless of how you incorporate it in a meal, it's nutrient-dense and a great addition to a healthy diet.
