  • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  • Bryanna's Gluten-Free High-Fiber Flour Mix:

  • cups brown rice flour

  • cups potato starch

  • cups tapioca flour

  • 1

    cup ground flax seed

  • 1

    cup chickpea flour or soy flour

  • tbsp xanthan or guar gum (see note)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a blender or food processor mix until smooth the sugar, tofu, water, egg replacer, coffee granules, vanilla and vinegar. In a medium bowl whisk together the cocoa, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the cocoa mixture and mix briefly. Add nuts, if using. Pour the mixture into a nonstick or lightly-oiled or sprayed 9-inch square cake pan. Spread evenly. Bake 25 minutes. Cool on a rack in the pan, then cut into 12 bars. Bryanna's Glute-Free High-Fiber Flour Mix: Makes about 13 cups. Mix well and store in a moisture-proof container in the freezer. Use cup-for-cup instead of regular flour. NOTE: Because non-gluten flours lack the structure that gluten provides, xanthan gum or guar gum (available in health food stores) is often added to gluten-free baked goods. This mixture contains enough xanthan or guar gum for cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads. For yeast breads, you may have to add up to 1 tsp more gum per cup of gluten-free flour.
