I am just wondering at what stage can we use soy flour? I was thinking it was legal since tofu is legal but I am having trouble finding info on it. Does anyone know? I made some pumpkin flax cookies (from my own recipe) last night and ended up adding a little soy flour to balance everything out, I'll be freezing most of them because 1-2 cookies and my belly is full! I decided to make them since school starts monday and they will be a grab and go snack for school days.

Soy flour would not be permitted until Rung 6 of OWL since soy beans are a legume.

How about trying almond flour? Almonds are nuts, and are on rung 3

I am still on rung 2 and thought I was being good lol. I will definitely be loving some almond meal/flour when I get to rung 3. I should have left out the soy and used extra flax and protein powder. Oh well, I am going to use press and seal to freeze them individually for when I am ready. My family ate some of them :) Thanks serenity.

I'm on rung 4 right now. I made almond flour cupcakes and a coconut flour red velvet cake recently. Yummy.

I couldn't trust myself with that stuff, I'd eat the entire batch.:nono: Sad but true.
