Kinako (Roasted Soy Bean Powder)/きなこ

Kinako is usually mixed with sugar at a ratio of 1:1, with a pinch of salt added. Personally, I usually cut back on the amount of sugar used to a ratio of, say, 1:0.5 to 1:0.8.
For lunch the other day, my daughter wanted to have "kinako pan (bread)". I simply added milk to the kinako-and-sugar mixture little by little until the right texture, and my daughter spread some of it on a slice of bread.

I never thought of doing that and putting it on bread. I always associate kinako with mochi and ice cream!

Thanks for your comments, yvette.
Try some on your bread if you ever get tired of peanut butter. You will be pleasantly surprised! I also recommend kinako milk (milk + kinako + sugar).
