Where can I find Peanut Flour?

foxspirit Feb 21, 2014 11:49 AM

They used to sell it at TJ's and I really love it but now I can't find it anywhere local. Anybody know of a place?

    Do you have a food processor?

      A food processor will turn peanuts into peanut butter. The peanut flour that used to be sold at TJ's and now is generally available online only is defatted, so it's more like a protein and fiber supplement than just ground peanuts.

        Actually looked this up and if you freeze the peanuts and are careful NOT to over process, you can in fact make peanut flour in a food processor.

      Have you tried Christina's in Cambridge?

        I have not. I'm not often around Cambridge. Is it near the T by any chance?

          It's in inman square not that far from Cambridge Hospital. It's a walk or bus ride from the Central or Harvard subway station.

          Yeah I've found a few places online but I was really hoping for a shop somewhere around town I could just pop by as needed.

          I buy mine in an Asian grocery store.
          I'm not in the Boston area so I can't suggest anywhere specific, but such stores may be a good place to look.

            Is this the same as PB2 peanut butter powder? If so, I have bought it at Target and have seen it at some health food stores also.

              Yes it is! Though PB2 is comparatively pricey.
