- Chestnut flour: Made from dry ground chestnuts, this flour is gluten-free and it's full of fibre, high protein and vitamin C. Additional plus, it's naturally sweet so if added to the dough, you can reduce the amount of sugar or any other sweetener in the recipe. If you can't find chestnut flour in the store, you can easily order it online.
- Buckwheat flour: You will fall in love with buckwheat flour for its robust, earthy and grassy flavours. We love also how the flour looks, it's slightly lavender brown, flecked with darker bits of hull. This flour is gluten-free and grain-free and rich in proteins, vitamin B and other minerals. Buckwheat flour is a great for making all kind of desserts and baked goods, as well as pancakes.
