    That sounds yummy, but I don’t have any peanut flour. In fact, I’ve never even heard of peanut flour!! Could I use whole wheat flour instead or is it the taste of the peanut flour that makes this yummy???

  2. Lauren @ Coachlauren.net

    Mmmm…this looks delicious!! I’ll have to pick up some peanut flour and pumpkin asap 🙂


  3. Eliz@The Sweet Life

    what a great idea! you can do so much in the microwave.

    Girl, this is such great timing–I just bought peanut flour on Monday! I literally have all the essentials of your recipe in the dorm kitchen except baking powder. (That can be remedied the next time I go to TJ’s.) Wheee I’m so excited to try this!

  5. Mom

    That actually looks delicious – a version of our old “Pumpkin Squares”. This also looks like a healthier version of the store-bought one-serving size Warm Delights) . A dollop of not-so-vegan whipped cream could top it also, right?

  6. Mom

    Now Dad tells me that, yes, he would actually prefer a teaspoon of agave or honey as you suggested (healthily)… :o)

  7. Wendy

    Yum! And I thought I had every possible type of flour in my pantry… putting peanut flour on my grocery list. I’m already thinking of the possible variations – applesauce instead of pumpkin, add cinnamon & nutmeg and call it “spice cake” (hubby’s fave)

    My understanding is that peanuts, with the exception of wild jungle peanuts, contain aflatoxins. Also…..microwave………..really? All your training with food and you use a microwave? Why would you do that?

      As with a similar comment left just last week, I have to ask what your intent is with writing my girlfriend in a tone that seems to indicate disgust. Are you “really” interested in knowing why she uses a microwave? Or, were you just wanting to express a level of superiority or perhaps some sense of unprovoked disappointment?

      Amber continues to post helpful and honest information with the intent of sharing her knowledge and even her delightful mistakes. I would ask that you and everyone else who writes disparaging comments limit the comments to your opinion about the food or the health properties thereof. Otherwise, all these comments accomplish is making the poster, you in this case, sound like someone unlikeable and negative.

      Here’s to hoping negative people changing into value-delivering, positive influences…

    Mmm! I like that it comes in a conveinient “no sharing” size!

  10. Michelle

    LOL….the microwave incident looks like something that would happen to me…sure sounds yummy! One problem for me though…no peanut flour. 🙁

  11. Cliff @ lerawconteur

    woah that looks like franken-cake! I want to try that. I never knew they made peanut flour… do they sell it at whole foods? or is that an “online order only” thing?

  12. OliePants

    I have heard recently about PB flour! I have to give it a go! It seems so versatile compared to the actual butter.

    Thanks for sharing this! I’m a microwave-phobe, but I might try making this for Phil and his daughter in our toaster oven (all the oven we have) nonetheless (or wait, hey–it’s no-sugar/gluten/dairy: I might be able to have some too!) I love the idea of peanut flour and think it tastes pretty good. Since I’m avoiding PUFAs, it’s a great way to get the peanut taste without too much of the omega-6 fat.

    Cool theme, the single serving thing. I’m probably going to post a single-serving soup in the next day or so in tribute to you!

  14. Lauren Slayton

    OK first- love that your mom comments on your blog (I’m going to give my mom grief about that). Second, I love this quick, single serving yet interesting snack idea. Like others, I haven’t tried peanut flour but I’ve been experimenting with chickpea flour and like it a lot. Great blog.

  15. Aparna

    Wow, I never heard of peanut flour before. Ha, Amber, you should create a 5-minute Single Serving Desserts Cookbook 😉

  16. Juri

    So there’s peanut flour. I know now. Just to imagine what I could do with it… ! If none of the local shops deliver I’ll get it somehow.

  17. Hannah

    Hmph. Looks so good, and yet in Australia we don’t have peanut flour or canned pumpkin. HMPH.

    I wonder if it would work with coconut flour and banana? Or applesauce? I guess there’s only one way to find out 😛 Surely I can justify buying the coconut flour now…

    P.S. I’ve started mixing my sunflower seed butter with nutritional yeast. I don’t know why I’m telling you this. But I like it.

  18. Heather Eats Almond Butter

    Crusty on the edges…gooey in the center? Sound perfect to me. Now I just gotta get my hands on some more peanut flour. 🙂

  19. GirlonRaw

    No matter what it looks like, it sounds deeelicious. I have seen that canned pumpkin at my commissary here a few times, perhaps I should pick up a can?

  20. katiivey

    After cleaning out my pantry yesterday so I could actually SEE what I have, I found a can of pumpkin! But no peanut flour… 🙁 Sadness. This looks great though!

    Oh, and I also found some dates! :> So I will try your other blondie soon too.

  21. Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather

    Yum I have peanut flour on hand! Use a large ramekin – noted.

  22. Lori

    oh yummy! I love how you did exactly what I would have done… and I definitely would have created a mess in my microwave. 🙂

    Sooooooooo, I have PB flour but it really does not work with my stomach… what else do you think would work in replace of? I’d rather not do a ton of almond butter…. hmmmmmm… Yum recipe though!

  23. Wendy

    Another great quick single serving cake is Bryanna’s Chocolate mug cake – it’s a standby for me for a chocolate fix. http://hungryvegan.blogspot.com/2010/08/bryannas-5-minute-miracle-chocolate-mug.html

  24. Kelsey @ Clean Teen Kelsey

    Yesss, thank you so much for this recipe! I’m buying peanut flour at TJ’s tomorrow, and I am sooo stoked. TJ’s is about 11 hours away from me, and I only get to go once or twice a year when we pass it on our way to Utah. I will be making this asap!

  25. callie

    haha, I just lol’ed a bit – as I’m infamous for overflowing sh*t in the microwave… And, the stove!

  26. Aly

    That looks super delicious! 🙂 Yummmmy. I’ve heard so much about peanut flour lately! I’m thinking it’s time to join the craze and buy some! 😉
    Thanks for the yummy idea! I can’t wait to make it (once I get me some peanut flour!)!

  27. Debbie

    You DO mean to say SIX Tablespoons of the peanut flour and not teaspoons?

    Going to get the peanut flour and try this soon!
    Thanks! and Love your Blog!!
