This recipe was contributed by The Ruby Range. They make several gluten-free / casein-free baking mixes that use Organic Mesquite Flour as the primary ingredient.
“Mesquite Meal or Flour is ground from the pods of the mesquite tree and adds a slightly molasses, nutty flavor to cakes, cookies, and breading. Baked items made with mesquite have a lovely golden to rust color. Traditionally tortillas were made from mesquite. Nutritionally it is high in protein, calcium, potassium, and iron. Mesquite can actually help balance blood sugar. Begin experimenting with small amounts added to your favorite recopies.”
