Sweet Peanut and Cashew Cream

If you’re searching for a versatile and budget-friendly nut butter spread, look no further than this delightful Creamy Peanut and Cashew Butter with Rice Flour and Coconut Flakes. Drawing inspiration from culinary experiences in Cambodia, where peanuts are a cherished ingredient, and the organic honey farming culture in Ukraine, this nut butter spread combines the rich nuttiness of peanuts and cashews with the subtle sweetness of coconut flakes. It’s not only easy to make but also affordable, making it suitable for anyone seeking a tasty and nutritious addition to their meals.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanuts (unsalted and roasted)
  • 1/2 cup cashews (unsalted and roasted)
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (such as sunflower or peanut oil)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Nuts: Begin by combining the roasted peanuts and cashews in a food processor. These two nuts will provide a delightful combination of flavors and creaminess to the butter.
  2. Initial Processing: Pulse the nuts in the food processor until they start to break down into smaller pieces. You’re aiming for a coarse texture at this stage.
  3. Add Rice Flour: Gradually add the rice flour to the nuts in the food processor. The rice flour not only adds a pleasant texture but also acts as a thickening agent.
  4. Incorporate Coconut Flakes: Now, add the coconut flakes to the mixture. They will introduce a subtle sweetness and a tropical twist to the nut butter.
  5. Blend until Smooth: Continue processing the mixture in the food processor until it reaches a creamy consistency. This may take a few minutes, and you may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  6. Pour in Vegetable Oil: While the food processor is running, slowly pour in the vegetable oil. This will help achieve a smoother and creamier texture for the nut butter. The choice of vegetable oil is flexible; you can use sunflower or peanut oil for a neutral flavor.
  7. Drizzle in Honey: Next, drizzle in the honey. It will not only sweeten the nut butter but also provide a lovely balance of flavors.
  8. Add a Pinch of Salt: Lastly, add a pinch of salt to enhance the overall taste of the nut butter. Adjust the salt to your preference, keeping in mind that a little goes a long way.
  9. Blend to Perfection: Continue processing all the ingredients until you achieve a smooth, creamy, and well-incorporated nut butter spread.
  10. Taste and Adjust: Pause and taste the nut butter. If you desire more sweetness, you can add additional honey. Adjust the consistency with more vegetable oil if needed.
  11. Store and Serve: Transfer the nut butter to a clean and airtight container. It can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks. Serve it as a spread on toast, drizzled over oatmeal, or as a dip for fruits and veggies. It’s a versatile addition to your kitchen that won’t break the bank.

Nutty Peanut and Coconut Rice Flour Cookies

Nutty Peanut and Coconut Rice Flour Cookies

If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat that embodies the flavors of Cambodia and Italy, these Nutty Peanut and Coconut Rice Flour Cookies are a delightful choice. Inspired by the nuttiness of Cambodian cuisine and the simplicity of Italian baking, these cookies bring together the richness of peanuts and the tropical sweetness of coconut. They’re easy to prepare and won’t strain your budget, making them ideal for anyone seeking an affordable yet delicious dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice flour and all-purpose flour. This blend of flours will give the cookies a delightful texture and flavor.
  3. Add the finely chopped roasted peanuts to the flour mixture. Peanuts will provide a rich nuttiness to the cookies and are a good source of protein.
  4. Stir in the sugar. Adjust the sugar quantity to your preference; if you prefer sweeter cookies, you can add a bit more sugar.
  5. Grate the coconut into the bowl. Coconut adds a tropical twist to the cookies and brings healthy fats and nutrients to the mix.
  6. Pour in the vegetable oil, which will help bind the ingredients together and keep the cookies moist.
  7. Add the baking powder and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Baking powder will give the cookies a slight rise, and salt will enhance the overall flavor.
  8. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until they come together to form a dough. You may need to use your hands to ensure everything is well incorporated.
  9. Once your cookie dough is ready, roll it into small balls, about the size of a walnut. Place these dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
  10. Gently flatten each dough ball with your palm to create cookie shapes. You can use a fork to make a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie if desired.
  11. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown at the edges.
  12. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack. As they cool, they’ll firm up and develop a wonderful crispy texture on the outside while remaining tender inside.
  13. Once completely cooled, savor these Nutty Peanut and Coconut Rice Flour Cookies with a cup of tea or coffee.
