What is sorghum flour and why use it?
First, you may be unfamiliar with sorghum flour so I will give you a quick run down on what it is and where to find it. Sorghum flour is made from grounding the sorghum kernel which is an ancient cereal grain from Africa. You can find sorghum flour at your local health food store. Sorghum flour is gaining in popularity because it is a gluten free flour choice. This makes the cereal grain sorghum safe food for those with celiac disease.
Some people may be more familiar with sorghum syrup which is another product that can be made from this ancient grain. It is especially popular in the southern part of the United States. Sorghum products can be found at most health food stores. Or you can order Bob’s Red Mill Sorghum Flour through my affiliate Amazon link below.

How To Make Sorghum Flour Tartlets
In a large mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients. In this case it is the two types of gluten-free baking flours are used to create the gluten-free flour blend.
Scoop out a well in the middle and crack in the eggs (room temperature is best). If using Flax or chia seeds, soak in a little water, then blend into the dough.
Fold it all together. Pour in the oil and knead into the dough till mixed. Add in the water, bit by bit, till you have a workable dough.
Cover and put in the fridge while in a small pot you mash up the berries with the apple and ginger.
Retrieve your dough and divide it into 2 – 4 equal balls. Use a rolling pin to lightly roll out the dough and then use the bottom of a small cup or jar to make a depression of between ½ to 1 inch.
Spoon some berry mix into it. Don’t heap up the berry mix or it’ll spill out over the sides when you bake.
Transfer to an oiled or non-stick tray and bake at 200C/390F for 10-20 minutes, depending on your oven, until just starting to brown.
Serve and enjoy the delicious flavor and excellent nutrients!

More Sorghum Flour Recipes:
With many sorghum flour recipes you will see xanthan gum as an ingredient. This is because sorghum has no gluten and so an alternate binder is needed in some recipes. This is the case with cakes for instance, where you need to mix one-half teaspoon xanthan gum per cup of sorghum flour.
