    • I had the best of intentions, but the kids are it so quickly I didn’t get a picture! They have requested another load so I will be sure to get a picture then, stay tuned!

  1. ack…note to self… proofread when posting from your phone! I meant the kids ate it so quickly I didn’t get a picture and that they have already requested another loaf.. 🙂

    • Right now I am using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. It consists of Garbanzo Bean Flour, Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, White Sorghum Flour and Fava Bean Flour.I I am also using Coconut Flour by the same brand. I have found it at most major grocery stores; QFC and Fred Meyer. I have played with this recipe a bit and have made a batch using all GF flour and no coconut flour and one with the blend, both came out well. Coconut flour has a different consistency and is a little more cakey. I am also going to try using Almond Flour. Stay tuned!

  2. I just got Almond flour and have yet to ‘play’ with it. I have made pancakes with coconut flour and they definitely have an acquired taste. Personally, I like them but the boys are a bit harder to convince. ;0)

      • my neighbor found her website and we went in on almond flour together that she recommends to try some of her recipes! how funny that you know of her.
