Yes, really! It is possible to get homemade refried beans in under 10 minutes, start to finish. The secret ingredient: BEAN FLOUR.


Now, I grind my own. My grain mill is one of my most prized possessions. I have both the Nutrimill Grain Millblank and the WhisperMill {cuz I’m a little freaky like that}. And I love them both.

Why? Because my grain mill gets me fresh, homemade flour super quickly. They grind wheat, kamut, spelt, rice, AND beans! And the berries are more economical than buying the flours {and grinding my own nets me super fresh, nutrient dense food}.

If you don’t have a grain mill, don’t despair. You can buy many different types of flour. {But it’s cheaper in the long run to invest in your own grain mill if you’re serious about alternative flours or making your own.}

Take a look on Amazon:

Bob’s Red Mill Bean Flour White, 24-Ounce (Pack of 4)blank

Bob’s Red Mill Bean Flour Black, 24-Ounce (Pack of 4)blank – black bean flour would also make wonderful homemade refried beans.

      I like them both. They both have pluses and minues. The cost is about the same. The Nutrimill has a larger capacity, but the machine is also bigger and takes up more room. The Wondermill can’t grind as much at one time, is smaller, but maybe just a tad quieter. If you want a larger volume, go with the Nutrimill. If you want a smaller machine, go with the Wondermill. 🙂 Helpful at all?

        Yes – my counter top is getting full. I like the thought of the smaller machine that can still get the job done! Thank you!
