They're okay subs for wheat flour, but have a couple of drawbacks. 1) They're kinda hard to use. With most, you can sub them cup for cup like almond flour or a gluten-free blend. 2) They taste very much like beans. I like beans, but not in my pancakes! Most people blend them with other flours to reduce the beany taste. I just use almond, coconut, and sometimes a gluten-free blend.
