I've come across a few different types of "flour" and was wondering what kind is best/taste good?  Soy flour, oat flour, wheat flour?  I want to make stuff like pancakes, muffins, etc.

Hey Shannon,

I use coconut flour corn flour and almond flour a lot- I make flour out of other nuts as well- we're gluten free but I try to keep it less carby/starchy as well

I am a big fan of cooking with spelt flour.  It works really well and has a lower glycemic index.  I just made blueberry muffins with half spelt and half whole wheat.  They were amazing.  If you are making muffins I always add way more fruit when cooking with whole wheat or other whole grains, it ups the moisture and makes for a yummier muffin.  And here is the best ever low carb pancake/waffle recipe ever:

Beat 1 cup cottage cheese till it is a little whipped

Beat in 4 eggs and 1/2 cup some kind of flour (I have used spelt, whole wheat, gluten free, anything works)

with mixer running add in 1/2 stick butter (you can do less here if you are worried about the fat content but I would add some)

that is it.  Batter done.  Use it for pancakes or waffles.  I have added walnuts or blueberries, I usually serve it with raspberry sauce (a bag of frozen raspberries heated on the stove and sweetened with something, stevia or splenda or whatever).  Sometimes I serve it with raspberries and a little greek yogurt on top, that ups the protein and also makes it a little less chewy and more moist which my pouch appreciates.  Have fun baking!

Use whatever you want. Just pay attention to the nutritional info. Different flours will give you varying results, so experiment to see what you like. 

Good luck!
