  1. Looks so good.....but.....I've never used bean flour...any sub for it?

  2. I'm guessing you mean Bruschetta. ;)
    Most GF flours can be substituted for one another. You can use whatever you have on hand. That said, I recommend you invest in bean flour as it gives baked goods a nice consistency.
    I'm sure I have info somewhere about what flours work best to sub for what, but we are moving & it's probably packed!

  3. this is so nice food i like this food it is one of the great food i like this. but it is fatty. so i can not eat it.

  4. For Susan --- Since beans are a legume and I am allergic to Soy (also in the Legume) family -- I cannot use bean flour. Having said that - I have substituted Chestnut flour for bean flour with success, also just using the striat flour mix from "Living Without" mag. which has several suggested flour blends, usually works for me. (I keep their all-purpose flour on hand). For those who must eat GF or have other allergies - Living Without is an excellent magazine to keep around. Thank you MGCC for you GF recipes ekh

  5. Also, Bruschetta, like Suz said

  6. Julie...yet again, you've provided a beautiful GF recipe that I will eagerly share with a loved one this holiday season. Thank you so much :)

    Blessings to all,
