Rated 5 out of 5 by amylove from Glad to have options fresh at home! I read a few irritated reviews here, but this is an amazing feature! Instead of heading to a "specialty" store, I get to blend and test various things at home. You can't/shouldn't substitute willy-nilly in recipes; there's some chemistry to understand there. But you don't "need" a professional gluten free chef. I mean, how many products in the shelves at stores, created by pros, are over-priced tasteless disappointments? However, the internet is FULL of recipes and suggested substitutions (ahem - such as where beans flours are concerned.) I've had some flops, and some amazing results. Black bean brownies are a hit in our house. That is, after several attempts to get it right :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANanaBarb from Can't wait to try this Garbanzos ARE beans and are also known as chickpeas! I don't know what some of the reviewers we're thinking. I can hardly wait to try making this flour. I am new to gluten-free baking but I am fully aware that you cannot just change out flours. That said, I've got several Keto/Paleo cookbooks that give suggestions & recipes on using alternate flours. I had my original Vitamix from 1997 to 2018. Had to upgrade when it just quit on me. LOVE my VitaMix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jennm from Perfect for grinding grains and legumes! I love using my Vitamix to grind any grain or legume. Helps keep things fresh because I can grind only what I need. I use the dry container, usually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blessing from Good to know It's interesting to know I can make flour from chick-peas in the vitamix...thanks for sharing. Will like to know how does the texture compare to shop bought flours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eileen 33 from gluten free baking experience needed You may think you can take a bread recipe and change the flour to gluten free and that is all there is to it. WRONG!!! I have been cooking and baking for about 7 years. That just does not work. Do not think that living gluten free is easy. I have had more flops learning to bake gluten free. Find and employ a person who is an experienced gluten free baker. We need good recipes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rjc8 from what kind of bean Nice directions but you forgot to mention what type of "bean flour". That is what I thought this recipe was about - how to make the bean flour. Disappointed as that is what I wanted to learn.
