Can I substitute Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free all-purpose flour for whole wheat pastry flour in a banana bread recipe?

I'm making a banana bread recipe that calls for whole wheat pastry flour. Can I substitute Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free all-purpose flour cup for cup? Or will it change the texture?

You can try the substitute. It may change the texture and taste slightly (whole wheat flour tends to be nuttier), but should still work. I haven't worked much with Bob's Red Mill gluten-free flour. Does anyone have any tips on making sure it produces a tender cake?

Here's a link to the 'Bob's' recipe, using their AP GF blend. Compare with the recipe you have for guidelines. There's another recipe on the Bob's site, using single flours blended together.
