Frequently asked questions
What flour do you use?
We use Manioc flour. A derrivative of the cassava plant.
The cassava plant is a staple crop to millions of inhabitants in South America and parts of Asia and Africa. The plant produces the cassava root is a starchy, high-carbohydrate tuber – similar to yam, taro, plantains and potato. As a tuberous root vegetable, cassava is gluten, grain and nut-free, as well as vegan, vegetarian and paleo.
Is cassava flour the same as tapioca flour?
While sometimes the terms cassava flour and tapioca flour are used interchangeably, there are in fact distinct differences. Tapioca is a starch extracted from the cassava root through a process of washing and pulping. The wet pulp is then squeezed to extract a starchy liquid. Once all the water evaporates from the starchy liquid, the tapioca flour remains.
Alternatively, cassava flour is the whole root, simply peeled, dried and ground. This means it has more dietary fiber than tapioca flour.
Is cassava flour nutty?
Unlike other gluten-free flours such as almond or coconut flour, cassava flour is very mild and neutral in flavor. It’s also not grainy or gritty in texture – rather, it’s soft and powdery.
How long do I bake for?
Set your oven to 450F and bake for 20 - 30 minutes. We suggest 20 minutes for softer, gooier results!
Results do vary based on each individual oven. We recommend watching for them to turn golden brown and then remove.
