This post contains 10 easy cassava flour recipes, perfect for meeting your Paleo baking needs! All of these recipes are made with cassava flour, Paleo friendly, grain free, dairy free and easy to make.
Cassava Flour is easily one of my favorite Paleo baking flours. It is naturally grain free and gluten free, works well in Paleo baked goods and is allergen friendly too.
What is Cassava Flour?
Cassava flour comes from from the cassava (or yuca) root. The cassava root is peeled, dried and ground to make cassava flour. You can probably guess that cassava flour is grain free and Paleo friendly since I use it in so many of my recipes. It also works well as a 1:1 substitution (by weight) for wheat flour and many gluten free baking mixes.
Now, it’s important not to confuse cassava flour with tapioca starch. Yes, they both come from the cassava root, but they are very different. Tapioca is the extracted starch of the cassava root. Whereas, cassava flour comes from the whole cassava root. They serve very different purposes in baking and cooking and are not interchangeable.
My favorite brand of cassava flour is Otto’s Cassava Flour. They have the highest quality cassava flour and it works better for Paleo baking than any other brand I’ve tried. Otto’s Cassava Flour peels, dries and then grinds their cassava into a reliable flour. They also ensure that every batch is free of the top 8 allergens.
