Did you mean wax paper when you said to roll them out on baking powder?

Can I get you to change your recipe so it reads correctly as baking paper? Now it says: Roll out each ball onto a piece of baking powder sprinkled with gluten free flour.

You can use oat flour finely milled, Bob’s Red Mill makes a great one.

Do you think 1.5 cups regular floor would work if you aren’t avoiding gluten?

I think so 🤗

Do you think the binding ingredient could be flax meal? And could instant oats be used instead of flour? Just wondering what your opinion is of these possible substitutions. I might try it that way since I try to avoid all kinds of flour,, but perhaps the oats would work.

I have never tried it but I think it would work🤗

I don’t have arrowroot, do you think tapioca flour would work?

I’m still new to whole food plant based. Can you explain how gluten free baking powder is still considered whole food plant based? I thought flours were processed. I’m so excited to try this recipe, thanks for your recipes and making videos — it really helps!

for how long should each one cook? could the be baked on a cookie sheet?

Reply
Jill Dalton April 14, 2020 - 12:57 pm

Cook for about 1 minute on each side or until brown spots appear on the cooked side.I haven’t tried baking them but I think it would work. I would line the cookie sheet with parchment paper so it doesn’t stick. =)

Can I press the breads with a tortilla press and parchment paper and then cook on the Bella griddle?
