Welcome to a LONG over-due Favorite Find Friday! You can see other favorite finds here.
In my quest for baking Paleo and nut-free – I found cassava flour. Some might say tapioca flour/starch is the same, however that’s not true. Cassava flour is a whole food, it is a root vegetable, dried and ground into flour. Tapioca is the starch extracted from cassava root.
I found two brands that I have used personally, both are gluten free.
Moon Rabbit Foods – which is made in a dedicated GF facility, non-GMO
Anthony’s Cassava Flour – Batch tested GF, non-GMOI have used it to make several different baked goods. I made scones, cookies, biscuits. It is texturally much different than other GF flours, however you need no xanthan gum. I used it in with coconut flour as well as adding in tapioca or arrowroot. I will try to get some other recipes up, but I’m still struggling with my health so I’m not sure when I’ll do it. I do have the Cassava Flour tortillas and they are great for wraps, tacos, enchilada casserole.
This flour is AIP compliant, Paleo, Whole 30, Gluten Free, Nut Free
