This is an all purpose Gluten Free flour recipe that took over a year for me to create and perfect.
I originally posted this recipe so I could have access to it while traveling around the world. I’ve used it several times over the past 4 years while in countries such as Thailand, England and Mexico. Finding the ingredients is probably the hardest part.
I’ve tried using all-purpose GF blends from many other companies but they weren’t as universal as I wanted and needed them to be. No matter how many gluten free breads I’ve made, I don’t like them so we moved on to Whole Wheat recipes. However, this flour mix could easily be used for your GF Bread recipes as well as for some desserts, pancakes, pizza crusts, sauces, beer batter mix, roux’s and more.
I’d like to state that no one in my family is gluten intolerant however, after researching foods and how they affect your health I’ve realized that we eat and use so much flour based products in foods that we don’t even realize we are eating them. This creates too much strain on our ‘gut’ and the good flora becomes overpowered over time. So, why not use Gluten Free flours whenever possible to help your gut out? Especially when you don’t have to sacrifice taste or texture while doing it.
I always keep this Gluten Free Flour Mix on hand. I always use Organic and GMO Free versions of this brand of Bob’s Red Mill products when available. This brand is easy to find almost anywhere and you can even get them shipped to you by clicking these links provided if you are perhaps on a military base in another country or even in a very rural area. Most stores carry Bob’s Red Mill however they don’t have all of these ingredients available.
Many GF Flour mixes have ingredients that we don’t want in our systems so I kept it simple. There are only 6 Ingredients. This mix has never let me down and my kids and husband love everything I make that I use this in. You can choose to use the Organic versions I use or the regular versions. It’s up to you and won’t affect recipes or how you use it. Just a preference really. Also, not all of these flour options come Organic so, there you go.
Also, you can find these items a bit cheaper in a store but for convenience, it might be easier to just order it and pay a couple dollars more to make sure you get Organic.
These are ALL Bob’s Red Mill Products.
Gluten Free Flour Mix Recipe
I make a large Container of this mix so I always double this recipe.
- 1 Cup Brown Rice Flour
- 1 Cup White Rice Flour
- 1 Cup Sweet White Rice Flour
- 1 Cup Tapioca Flour
- 2 2/3 Cups Sorghum Flour
- 4 Tsp Xantham Gum
Put all measured ingredients in a large container that has a tight seal or lid and mix with a whisk. I use a whisk to mix because I find that it mixes a lot better than a wooden spoon.
I store mine in a glass container on my kitchen counter but you can put yours in a cabinet or even refrigerator if you are so inclined. I’m a simple girl and just like ease and access since I use it so much. It never stays around much to test it’s freshness so if you are worried about storage, check with Bob’s Red Mill for best storage practices.
As an aside, you can ‘halve’ the Sorghum and exchange 50% of it with Buckwheat, Teff, Millet or other Gluten Free Flour to change up the flavor and nutritional value you desire. Shawn loves Buckwheat Pancakes so sometimes I make a small batch of this mix and exchange 50% of the Sorghum for Buckwheat. Have fun and play around with it.
Let me know what you think of this mix, if you have any questions, and what you’ve made with it.
