Reviews For Gluten Free Garbanzo Fava Flour
Based on 5 Reviews
I can't eat gluten, so I've been experimenting with flour alternatives to use in my home-made bread. This stuff has been great. It has a very distinct flavor - almost like some sort of dry beans. It's not my favorite flavor in the world, so I'll probably try something else for my bread, but this has worked out best out of the options that I've tried so far. Thrive has such a great price on it too. I've seen other online retailers charge over $8 per bag. I'm glad I know where I can get this affordably.
Strong flavor not good for everything
The problem with flour derived from beans is that you are going to have a strong flavor. This may not bother you with normal bred, but it can wreak havoc on cookies and cakes.
That's what I've come to discover with Bob's garbanzo fava flour. It's not that it's bad per se, just that the flavor is strong. I find that when I make cakes or muffins with blueberry or banana, I'm not bothered as much by the bean flavor.
Works nicely for gluten free baking
Without gluten in my diet, my stomach problems haven't been anywhere near as bad as they were before I cut out gluten.
But I needed to find the right kind of flour for my baking needs. I tried Bob's because it has a reputation for making quality natural products. And the Thrive price was really attractive, just a little higher than what I used to pay for wheat flour and three dollars less than on Amazon.
The flour is good, especially if you combine it with other flour like millet flour that is also gluten free. I make breads and muffins with this and can't tell the difference from the days when I used wheat flour.

Great for gluten-free baking. This is a staple in my house!
I use this flour for baking my gluten free chocolate cake , cookies, pancakes and etc. The finished product tastes soooooo good couldn't tell that is wasn't make with wheat flour.
Wow! Flour from Beans!
When my dietitian recommended gluten free bean flour, I thought it would taste bad. Flour for cookies and cake made from beans. Who knew it would taste this great.
The textures of wheat products are what draws me to them. The gluten makes things taste better. But she told me if I give up the gluten, my IBS would clear up. She was right; I no longer suffer with digestive issues. I feel better now.
