    This sounds like a delicious gluten-free dessert option, however I would steer clear of qualifying it as low GI. As someone who has hypoglycemia and gluten intolerance I know tapioca and rice have the highest GI's of any flours, and potato is not much better. Gluten-free recipes using almond or garbanzo flour are best. Garbanzo flour is best used in small quantities in banked goods because it turns mealy (ie. in peanut butter cookies, where PB is the bulk of the base).
