Mesquite Flour?

Has anyone used this? It comes from the ground up pods that grow on Mesquite trees.

If so, what does it taste like. I’ve read that the taste ranges anywhere from mocha coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, coconut to hints of molasses. That’s a wide range of tastes.

In addition to baking with it supposedly it can be used as a seasoning and even in drinks.

Supposedly Argentineans use it in a lot of their cooking. I’ve seen recipes using it for tortillas or as a fish breading.

There seems to be some health benefits involved. Supposedly it is an appetite suppressant and is good for controlling blood sugar. Also it has no gluten in it.
