It´s so awesome that I can not resist from sharing my experimental recipe and insist you to bake one & try yourself! Trust me, it´s worth it!!! Fluffy, not too sweet, all the tastes are just so right in here. I promise... And all you need is a good quality blender, baking sheet & 5 minutes of your time to put it all together!!! :) —Ausra de Araujo

    Oh thank you, for the correction! :) You can replace by any flour you want. P.s. I have just discovered that I do not need to buy any of the "uncommon" flours and pay double price. I just buy the grains and blend them. Of course they are not as fine as thr bought ones, but for baking, it makes it with even more interesting texture! ;)

    Where are the dates in the list of ingredients? And what can I replace the brown rice flour with - spelt flour? or brown rice flakes? Thank you
