Book Review: Flying Apron Gluten-free and Vegan Baking Book



I was actually reading this for Spencer, my friend who needs the gluten free part- Then I read the title more closely, Vegan? hmmm. It is one of our best sellers in gluten free books.

I am not sure about all these gluten free flours, some are difficult to find. I have had some success at the Indian stores for Garbanzo bean flour (besan) and sorghum flour. I am thinking I would make buckwheat flour , quinoa and brown rice flours in my blentec blender .

This bakery does not use refined and processed flours and starches (thickeners) in their recipes. They are using natural sugars as well, agave syrup, maple syrup, dried fruits, fruit juice concentrates, etc. One recipe called for 2 C of agave syrup! That stuff seems pretty expensive in a recipe like this.

If you do not want to do it all the time, I noticed that there is a new gluten free bakery offering items at our local farmers market in Mckinney.

I will try some of these recipes, testing them on Spencer! I am not such a purist and may buy a bag of gluten-free flour. I have read good reviews of the King Arthur gluten free blend, have to see if it is at whole foods.
