Bread with Bean Flour

I ordered some white bean flour off the internet this week and developed a recipe for Southwest Quick Bread. I used it in combination with almond flour and added some jalapenos and onions. Full of flavor. I enjoyed a sandwich using it with chipotle mustard, ham, and fresh slices of tomato. Yummy! Here is the link:

That recipe sound interesting. Do you happen to have a carb count or the carb count on the white bean flour?

I looked up Bob's Red Mill and it's 20 carbs per quarter cup. So how many servings does this recipe make?

2 cups of white bean flour would be 160 carbs, so unless it makes a lot of slices, it might be too carby for a lot of people on this forum. Of course maybe not for some in maintenance.

Thanks for pointing this out. I'm diabetic and tend to think a little different. This recipe works if you reduce the bean flour and increase the almond flour to the point where you like your carb count. The bean flour has a wonderful flavor compared to the milder almond flour. One thing I do is bake it in mini loaf pans and make mini sandwiches. I'll make a big loaf this week and get a slice count for you on the carbs.

I don't mind trying the bread with bean flour, I just have to find some or order some first. I think it would be a nice change from using almond flour all the time. It looks good in the pics.

Of course I probably eat more carbs cause I've already lost my weight and kept it off for 3 years, so I don't worry as much about it as some.

I'm always looking for good bread recipes, so I look forward to hearing back from you later on. I hope I wasn't sounding negative earlier, I didn't mean it that way. There are a lot of diabetic people on this board so hopefully they will find this thread also.

I didn't find you negative in any way. I got my white bean flour from nuts.com. I tried to make some things with black bean flour on the weekend and found I have a learning curve to deal with. I mixed salsa with black bean flour and tried to make a type of baked chip/cracker. I used the more watery salsa to do this and added some salt. Flavor was good but they cracked. I will give it another try this week. I spread them super thin and made them about 4 inches. I was thinking about a tostada type thing that I could put turkey taco meat and loads of shredded lettuce and tomato on.

I miss sandwiches myself so that's what I was thinking of when I made the bean flour bread. My husband said I had a smile on my face when I was eating them yesterday!! LOL

The chips sound good. I don't know if you use chia, but it helps to hold things together or maybe egg whites would work also.

You can also make tostada shells out of cheddar cheese and cheese chips. I don't know if you already do that, but if not, it's a thought.

I hope your salsa chips work out--it would be like having doritos again. *smile*

I ran it through Mastercook-- for 12 slices, as written, it's 11g net per slice, and 318 cals per slice.

You'd have to get rid of a LOT of the chickpea flour to make a difference in the carbs, and the cals seem to go way up.

Still, an interesting quickbread idea, and maybe something for maintenance for Atkins folks, or for a special treat like a Brunch.

thanks for posting!

I'm very limited because of food intolerances to wheat and soy. There might be some better choices for you to use in place of the almond flour for instance. Not sure. I'll keep researching it and see what I can come up with. Thanks so much for the info.

There might be a newer link, but I think this is the right one.
