I use soy flour all the time. I bought some at Wal-Mart last year for about $1.33 a pound. I made several piecrusts with it and the pies came out pretty good. When I went to buy more, the Wal-Mart stores in my area no longer sells it.

I looked all over the place and couldn’t find it for the price I paid at Wal-Mart. I found this place on the Internet who sells it for $1.00 a pound. Only thing is you have to buy 50 lbs of it. The shipping is less than $5.00.

For several months now I have been making pumpkin pies, chocolate cakes, waffles, pancakes and lately, I have been making soy rigatoni. I found that Hunts makes a low carb pasta sauce and I have been making the pasta for a couple of months now. I think I still got 30 lbs left of the soy four left.

This is where I bought the soy flour and they also sell the soy protein Isolate there also. Takes less than a week and you have everything delivered to you door.

Good Luck

Thanks so much Kevin and I will check it out!! My health food store did not have it. Obviously you use it just like flour. Does it need baking powder? in order to cook your dishes???

I just follow a recipe and substitute the soy flour for regular flour. I use the baking Splenda instead of the sugar. It’s not perfect. But the cakes, pancakes and waffles come out pretty good.

I used to make carrot cake and switched to chocolate after awhile. I also made pumpkin cake that came out pretty good. I eat them without frosting. There not perfect and sometimes I have to adjust the liquid a little if the batter looks a bit dry but I found that I like them.

The pancakes came out ok, but the waffles came out pretty good. I put sugar free jam on the pancakes and they taste pretty good. I sometimes will use sugar free maple syrup, got to be careful with the maple syrup because of the sugar alcohols. Too much and I got to spend some time in the bathroom. The waffles I just toast and eat.

Soy noodles weren’t to good but when you put on the low card pasta sauce, hot sauce and grated cheese they taste ok. I have been eating the pasta several times a week for the last several weeks. I like them. It just took a few days to get used to them. I tried the Dreamfield brand, but if you don’t cook them right they will spike your blood sugar just like regular noodles. The soy noodles I can over cook and they still don’t spike me.

Last year I made pumpkin pies and to my surprise they came out pretty good. I used the soy flour for the crust and replaced both the regular and brown sugar with the regular baking Splenda. I found that when using Splenda I sometimes use a little less than if I was going to use regular sugar.

I have a bread recipe I plan on making some day. But soy flour doesn’t work with the yeast so you have to mix it with regular or whole grain flour to get it to rise.

I post my recipes on my blog. You’re free to take look and try them if you want. I found that I have to experiment a little with them. It sometimes takes a few batches to get them to come out ok. I found that the cakes come out good no matter if there a bit moist or dry. Anyway take a look and maybe you will get some ideas of your own.

I also wrote how I got my blood sugar from 14.1 to 5.9 in 4 months on this page. If you’re interested.

I wasn’t going to post these links anymore, but this may be the last time I post links to my blog.

I have spent the last year or so telling my story to whoever will listen and next week I go on vacation for 2 weeks and am not sure if I will return to this site for a while. I have lots of work I need to do around the house that the wife is getting pretty mad about. Figure coming here reaching out to people isn’t worth getting a divorce over. I’m not even sure if I helped anyone anyway. I figure I have been wasting my time on the Internet and neglecting my duties here at home. Well if your interested in my story click the link below.

Textured vegetable protein. It’s a soy product. Its low carb and low fat. Some people have a problem with soy products. Thank god I don’t. I bought 25 pounds of it at bulk foods online.

I made TVP oatmeal for several months and then started to use it making cakes. I now use the soy flour. I used to grind the TVP and I think it made pretty good cakes. If you’re going to buy lots of soy flour then use that instead of the TVP in the cakes. You may have to adjust the liquid a little bit.

I haven’t added much to my blog lately. I need to add the pasta noodles. I have a pasta machine my mother bought me 15 years ago. I haven’t used it much until now. For the pasta I use

1 ½ cups soy flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour optional
2 eggs
1 teaspoon oil
1 once of water

mix dry ingredients in large bowl
lightly beat the eggs, add water and oil and add to the dry ingredients. Add more water or flour if needed

My machine does all the mixing and has several different dies to run the pasta threw. Lately been using the rigatoni die.

Pasta isn’t the best in the world but when you add the sauce and hot sauce and grated cheese it’s not to bad. Just don’t eat it plan. My first batch I tried eating with margarine and a little salt and grated cheese. Had to force it down. Stating to get used to it now.

I don’t use skim milk, too any carbs. I used to make soymilk but it takes lots of time. Wal-Mart sold a brand 8th Continent or something that had only 2 net carbs per serving. I used to use that. I now buy raw walnuts and almonds at Bjs for $3.66 a pound. I now make almond or walnut milk. It is quick and easy to make and they don’t spike my blood sugar.

Use the skim milk, I found it doesn’t matter which milk I use. I just try and keep the carbs down to a minimum so I use the nut milks now.

If you go to the health food section of your grocer or a health food store, that is where you will most likely be able to find soy flour. I don't know the recipe you are referring to, but I am sure if you take it with you, the health food store will have a lot of options for you.

It was the bread recipe that was on the site several days ago. Actually my health food store did NOT have it but suggested I try a sub. like Oat bran flour.Would that add too many carbs??

Oat flour can be more in carbs, but if you get it from the whole oat, the fiber is probably pretty good in it as a compensation. Now I make my own oat flour and it adds a much heavier texture to my breads, so I am not sure how it would work in the recipe. Experiment with it and try it out.

I have sub soy flour for regular flour and it worked pretty good. It just will not work with yeast. with yeast you have to have some regular flour mixed in.
