Mesquite flour in LA?

I'd like to make the chocolate chip cookies from Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Cooking but they call for mesquite flour, which I'm having an impossible time finding. Has anyone else see this? For reference, I've checked the SaMo Co-op, Venice Whole Foods, Surfa's and the Natural Foods Store in the Marina complex where the Counter is located. Thanks in advance!

  1. Hi MollyO!

    I hate that, when I search around a bunch of places for an ingredient and no one seems to carry it.

    Looks like you can get it online from La Tienda. Don't we have any Spanish markets here in LA? If we do, they may carry it as well.

    Oh, and I just had another thought, tho it may be a tad obscure - did you try Penzey's Spices on 5th in SaMo? That might be an option.

    Good luck!!

        1. Whole Foods does carry it - which location did you check? at the Venice store, it's on the bottom shelf below all the gluten-free mixes.

            I've bought mesquite flour at Nature Mart in Los Feliz.
