  1. This sounds yummy. I just made one recently without refined sugar. I will have to try it with pecans next time! You are very inspiring!

  2. I make my own. There are several different combinations you can use but I find this one works best:
    1 cup rice flour
    1 cup tapioca flour
    1 cup cornstarch
    3 tsp. potato flour (not potato starch)
    Mix together well and use as you would all purpose flour.
    I usually mix up a triple batch or more and keep it in an air-tight container until needed.
