I've read that teff flour is a nice additive plus gives fiber. There is also coconut and nut flours you can use as well. Lucinda

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

There are so many! I read quiet a few GF blogs. Karina, Lynn's Kitchen Adventures, Simple sugar.

They usually review flours a lot. I did a great pie crust one with sweet white rice flour and it was much different then just white rice flour. I like buckwheat.

Thanks for the info. Some of the flours I can't use since they also cause problems with me too.

Bean flours are high in protein, fiber and calcium. Varieties include chickpea (garbanzo), bean (navy, pinto and red) and soy. Garfava flour is a blend of flours made from garbanzo, fava beans and Romano beans. These flours work well with foods, such as breads, pizza and spice cakes. Try mixing them with tapioca flour, cornstarch and sorghum flour for a hearty, nutritious blend that lends structure and texture to your baking. Store them at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
How to use: Add up to 30 percent of a total flour blend. A small amount ( to cup) added to pie crust or wraps makes these items more elastic and easier to roll out.
Watch out for: Certain bean flours, particularly garfava and chickpea, impart an aftertaste that some people find unpleasant. Offset the taste by using less than 30 percent in a flour blend in recipes that contain brown sugar, molasses, chocolate or spices. Bean flours are not well suited to delicately flavored goods, like sugar cookies and biscotti. This was copied from www.livingwithout.com/issues/4_1/gluten_fr

I use an all purpose flour but still find different all purpose flours work best for some recipes and not for other. I have about 3 different kinds that I use.

I was looking through the Spark People cookbook and some of the recipes call for whole wheat flour. What is a good gluten free alternative, that has the fiber?
