Avilia's Recipe: Japanese Mochi with Peanut Butter Filling Vegan

Have you tried Mochi before?

Mochi is a Japanese sweet which, when translated, means “rice cake”, though has little to do with cakes as we know them. It depends on the filling, but generally Mochi is vegan. In Japan they can be part of a savoury dish, for example in a soup, as well as sweet.

I personally have only tried the sweet version so far and this is why I would like to show you some sweet Mochi variations – starting with: Mochi with a peanut butter filling.

If you have never tried Mochi before, I really recommend you give it a go! You might need a little time getting used to because they’re really sticky, but maybe you will love them as much as I do 🙂

I was really surprised how easy they are to make. The only special ingredient you need is glutinous rice flour.

glutinous rice flour

You can get this in an Asian food store and it isn’t expensive, at all. Additionally, you will need a microwave for this recipe.

Well, here we go 🙂

Ingredients (for 6 pieces):

  • 60g glutinous rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons wheat flour
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup

Peanut Butter agave syrup

Mix the peanut butter with the agave syrup and put it in the fridge for half an hour.

In the meantime, mix the glutinous rice flour and the sugar with 150ml water. Heat it in the microwave in a air-sealed container for 5 minutes (800 watts).

Tip: For the following steps always use a lot of flour, since the dough is really sticky. Surface, dough scraper, rolling pin, mocha and hands should be covered in a bit of flour.

When the dough has cooled a little(after 5 minutes), sprinkle some flour on top and put it on a surface covered with flour using a dough scraper.

Wait 10 more minutes, so that the dough isn’t hot anymore. Roll the dough out as thin as possible (if you can, roll it into a square) using a rolling pin. Cut it in 6 even pieces.

Distribute the peanut butter cream on the pieces (a heaped teaspoon per piece). Now get the two opposite edges and press them together over the filling. Repeat this with the other two opposite edges and press the dough together so that there is no peanut butter visible. Form it into a ball carefully and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

I hope you like this recipe and wish you all a wonderful and delicious day! 🙂

    • Hey 🙂 No I haven’t, but I’m curious to try it! I’m planning on trying out different sweet versions and maybe I can also make some savory ones after 🙂 Have you done any before any maybe have some suggestions for me?

  1. Mmm, these peanut butter mochis looks delicious! Since I live next to a Japanese supermarket I’m always too lazy to make my own. But sometimes my mother will make fresh mochi (using her electric mochi maker lol) and it’s so much better when it’s fresh!
