Welcome to Casa de Mesquite
Mesquite really is a very versatile ingredient that will add flavor and aroma to surprisingly different types of gluten free and non-gluten free products. The mild cinnamon/coconut/chocolate type aroma and flavor can be achieved by using about 2 rounded tablespoons per cup of dry ingredients. This is often requires a slight increase in liquid to the mixture (often milk). The volume of the muffins, cakes and cookies will be less than recipes with mesquite, but the added flavor is worth the decrease in volume. When mesquite flour is combined with cinnamon, for the first 5 minutes the cinnamon aroma predominates but from about 5 minutes till the product is finished baking the mesquite aroma will predominate.
