Japanese recipe: Kinako mochi (Soybean flour rice cake)

My favorite way to eat rice cakes is with kinako(soybean flour).
As I get older, I started craving traditional Japanese sweets like Kinako mochi a lot more than before.

Whenever I go back to Japan, I get excited to find new Kinako sweets too. It is amazing that Japanese people come up with tasty sweets using Kinako with non-traditional Japanese food such as cakes, chocolates, jam, breads, ice cream.....

By the way, If you have a chance to visit Japanese supermarkets, I recommend buying Kinako mochi chocolates from tirol. You will love it if you like soybean flour.
