Easy Recipe to Make Gluten-Free Flour

When you discover you're sensitive to gluten, or simply make the choice to go gluten-free, traditional baked goods are typically scrubbed from your diet.

Why? Most breads, pastries, pasta, cookies, and other foods made with flour are almost always make with enriched white flour. And it contains gluten.

Does that mean all your favorite family recipes that call for a cup or two of flour will be forgotten? Maybe not.

With just a few ingredients, you can make your own gluten-free flour and use it as a substitute in those recipes.

Here’s what you need to make a large batch to store in a flour container:

Ingredients
  • 4 cups superfine brown rice flour
  • 1-1/3 cups potato starch 
  • ⅔ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (this replaces gluten)
Directions

1. Measure out the ingredients.

2. Place the measured flours and starch into a large container.

3. Mix the flours and starches until they are thoroughly blended.

4. Store in air-tight container.

5. When you’re ready to bake, use 1 cup of this gluten-free flour, in place of 1 cup of white flour. It may not act exactly like regular flour, so you might need to work with the recipe to get the best results.
