I went to a party today & a friend had made this walnut mocha torte: http://www.bhg.com/recipe/tarts/walnut-mocha-torte/ She used the ground walnuts & instead of wheat flour, she used garbanzo bean flour (it only calls for 2 TBSP.)
So I looked up the recipe & I'd like to skip the garbanzo bean flour. I've baked a lot with ground pumpkin seeds (I grind them into a flour) - I wonder if that would work instead of the garbanzo bean flour?
I think everything else seems okay, but I want to lose ALL of the sugar. I don't want the caffeine, but that seems like a simple fix.
I'd be fine with maybe 2-3 drops of stevia glycerite in the whipped topping, but I wonder about the cake batter. I don't know if it would hold together so well without the sugar. I was thinking banana, but I don't necessarily want that much sugar/carb.
Ideas? I took the tiniest bite of my friend's slice & it was REALLY good!
