Recipes that call for peanut powder/ recipe for chipotle peanut pesto aioli?

This thread tipped me off to Bell Plantations "defatted" peanut powder--it has 25% of the fat of peanut butter, and it's actually quite good taste-wise (I haven't added water yet to see how the texture compares). I think it will be a good lower fat alternative to peanut butter (although, there's always ruth lafler's tip to mix a couple of TBSP of real peanut butter into fromage blanc--I might actually try mixing the peanut powder into fromage blanc to see what happens).

I bought it because I'm trying to mimic Longfellow Grill's (in Minneapolis) recipe for "chipotle peanut pesto aioli," which they serve alongside their sweet potato fries.

But now I'm wondering what kinds of other possibilities there might be? I think it might be good just sprinkled over veggies, though, I haven't tried it yet. But, maybe it would be good for asian peanut sauces? Baking? I don't know. Curious what other folks have tried.

By the way, if anyone knows how to make "chipotle peanut pesto aioli" please post your recipe!
