I want to make this recipe this weekend but I'm also allergic to sorghum and potato and not sure what to replace the sorghum flour with. My usual swap for cookies is chickpea flour but I've never tried that in pie. Suggestions?

anaphylaxis to tree nuts, peanuts, and potato; asthmatic, dairy intolerant, vegan
other family members allergic to to dairy, egg, peanut, peach, banana, sesame, environmentals

Great question. We reached out to the author of this recipe, Allergy Chef Mary Schaefer for her input.

She suggests: Since sorghum flour is a protein flour, it can be replaced with other protein flours. I often replace sorghum with brown rice flour, which is my usual go-to for substituting.

White rice flour, coconut flour, and bean flours are also protein flours. So they will be able to replace sorghum with chickpea flour. I use chickpea flour for so much now, i.e. batters, hollandaise sauce, gravies, omelets, and so much more. Though I have not used chickpea flour as a replacement for sorghum in this application, I feel it would make a suitable replacement, though my first choice would be brown rice flour.

Hope that helps!
