I’m totally smitten with these Dark Chocolate Brownies, and they’re the first recipe I’m sharing from my cassava flour test kitchen adventures. The full recipe is on my blog, but a general rule of thumb (for brownies, at least) is to swap in 2/3 the amount of cassava flour for the APF in your fave brownie recipe. So, for example, if you need 75 grams of APF, use 50 grams of cassava flour. #cassavaflour #grainfree #dairyfree

And now I must find cassava flour. Will tapioca flour do the same thing?

Okay, the short answer is maybe, possibly not. My hunch is you'll need a partner flour to help give the brownies structure without being too gummy (perhaps almond meal or coconut flour). The long answer as to why...Cassava flour comes directly from the root being peeled, dried, and ground. Tapioca flour is a result of the root being washed, pulped, and squeezed. Once the liquid evaporates, you're left with a flour, which is what we know as Tapioca flour. So different processes yield different results in baking. Sorry for the long winded explanation, and hope that helps. Also, I adore all of your work! #fangirlforever
