Making your own bean flour

Postby dgdavis64 » Fri Mar 29, 2013 5:15 pm

Does anyone know off hand when grinding your own beans for flour, do they need to be soaked or just rinsed off?

Hi Diane,

Found this online. You'll want to rinse them and then let them dry. Also, dried beans frequently contain rocks and/or dirt, so pick any debris out before you grind the beans. ... ean-flour/

I wouldn't soak them first, as that would sort of defeat the purpose of grinding them, unless you want bean dip instead. :)

Good luck!

Edited to add: Further down that page, the author talks about roasting the beans first for a more nutty flavor. YUM

I would try to buy some sprouted flour if you aren't going to cook them a lot because of the phytates and lectins.
I just found this site:

Has sprouted lentil flour and garbanzo bean flour.
