I told you there would be a return of garbanzo bean flour! I can’t get enough of that stuff. It’s like quinoa- very versatile & can be eaten sweet or salty.
This time. I mixed 3 different flours, garbanzo bean, brown rice, and gluten free all purpose baking flour to create these little squares of heaven. I brought them on our boating excursion this weekend and they were gobbled.
My friends give me so much shit for baking gluten free….but I don’t care, because honestly, I can’t really tell a difference between the two. Gluten free baked goods just have a slightly different texture.
A lot of people don’t realize that most food they eat are naturally gluten free. Like…
- corn tortilla chips and salsa
- chicken, steak and any kind of meat
- all fruits and veggies
- peanut butter
The list goes on!

I actually used almost this exact recipe to make gluten free cookies that didn’t make the blog. In general, the batter didn’t rise that much, so my cookies turned out more like balls (unless I flattened them myself). Still delicious…but still mastering that recipe.
Pretty much not possible to just have one.
But that’s just me :)
