I have been searching for ages for a good substitute for white flour, and I think I have finally found the answer with Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Grain Amaranth Flour. This is great news, for both my husband and I are diabetics, and it's not just sugar that causes glucose levels to increase. I have had lots of fun redoing old recipes for cakes and cookies that otherwise would call for white flour - there is no discernible difference in taste, although one has to be careful in how much one uses as I did have to recalculate some measurements as Amaranth flour has a denser consistency than regular. However, our sweet tooth can be happily satisfied without the fear of paying the price with our sugar levels!

I usually use oat flour and I had ran out of that so I used my package of amaranth flour... I bought it since it's really healthy. It was one of the most disgusting things ever. I can't describe the taste, or the smell for that matter, cause it smells awful too. I usually make pancakes in the oven.. And the whole house smells of this, when using this. Not gonna buy this again.. Sorry to say, since it's really nutritious..
