    High Gluten Flour / Pancakes

    I just found out that high gluten flour is a great substitute for flour in low carb diets. I bought some yesterday at the health food store - I didn't know that this stuff is 80% protein and only 20% carbs. 1/4 cup has 24 g protein and only 6 g carbs. Today I made pan cakes, mixing 1/8 c high gluten flour, 1 sc = 20 g protein powder (from the protein factory which I usually use for shakes, a blend of 70 % milk isolate and 30 % egg white) and 1 whole egg. I fried it in canola oil. I put cinnamon and splenda and walnut pieces and a little sour cream on it and it tasted really good! Does anyone know where to find low carb recipes using high gluten flour, maybe to make pizza dough, muffins etc.?

    The nutrient breakdown was listed on the container containing it. It said 1/4 cup contains 24 g protein, 6 g carbs, 0 g fat - do you think this is inaccurate? I found it at Whole Foods.

    You`re welcum

    w8, as a side note......do you think the protien would be at all denatured by heating this? As in making pancakes etc with it.
