Wheat free baking

I am trying to a avoid wheat! Since I do the cooking we are all eating way less wheat!
I love to bake so I'm looking for a good flour for cookies, banana bread, etc.
I sub ground oatmeal in waffles and pancakes and have have good success but it did not work in cookies!!
Looking for suggestions. Thanks!

All flours are not equal and each have their own properties. They will act differently based on the components if each recipe you try.

Re: Wheat free baking

So far my favourite is coconut flour. It tends to use a lot of eggs though. Also the bag seems expensive but sometimes you only need 3 TBS for a recipe and b/c of the combination of coconut and egg, it is very filling and a bag can last quite awhile. I've also used black beans to make "brownies" but just tried a coconut flour version and like it a lot better, though they're still not quite the same as actual brownies - more like a cake. I've made cookies with coconut flour too which our little ones and I liked; they'll also eat up coconut flour "pancakes" even if I don't sweeten them. I've also used ground up almonds to make cookies and buckwheat flour to make crepes. Nothing is really quite the same as wheat though.

eta: I've also used ground up almonds for almond flour and there are some recipes which don't even use flour but nut butters instead.
