Nutmeal flour has been used to replace wheat flour or plain flour. It's your choice which you use
Nutmeal flour can be used for pie crust, biscuits, to crumb meat and fish, make pancakes or simply mixed with hot water for a morning cereal with Natvia, strawberries and other fruits (and maybe low fat cream, if you are being a bit naughty)
