Gluten free banana bundt cake with milk kefir
One of my personal projects is to try some “different” gluten-free flours. This time I experimented with sorghum flour. Sorghum flour is naturally gluten-free, rich in fiber, rich in antioxidants, and best of all, it has a slightly sweet taste that makes it a perfect alternative to wheat flour.
Although some gluten-free flours are low in nutrients, this is not the case with sorghum flour. This flour is rich in protein, iron, B vitamins and dietary fiber. In addition to being rich in nutrients, sorghum flour has the added benefit of having a low glycemic index. This is important for people with diabetes because it is absorbed into the bloodstream more slowly than other carbohydrates, preventing a sudden spike in sugar. Sorghum flour is also rich in fiber that benefits our digestive system and helps us feel full for longer. I combined sorghum flour with bananas and milk kefir and I can say that I am satisfied with the result!
