Simply Homemade Gluten Free Flour Blend

Gluten free baking can be intimidating at first.  Especially when you find yourself unexpectedly thrown into the gluten free world!

If you want to learn more about my gluten free adventure, read “Me….Gluten Free!?! No Way! Or So I Thought.

There are many pre-made flour blends on the market, but I find that they are too pricey for our meager family food budget.

This Simply Homemade Gluten Free Flour Blend incorporates 3 gluten free flours and costs less than $2.00 per pound!!!!

I also prefer the taste of this flour blend over anything I have ever purchased.  I bake for friends and family all the time, and they often comment on how good my gluten free goodies are.

 The BEST Gluten Free Flour Blend | There are many pre-made flour blends on the market, but they are so pricey. This easy and healthy recipe incorporates 3 gluten-free flours (sorghum, brown rice, tapioca) and costs less than $2.00 per pound!!!! I also prefer the taste and texture of this blend for bread, cookies, donuts, ANYTHING! Let me show you how to make your own simple blend for your favorite desserts and other cooking needs!

I choose to store my flours separately in the pantry and mix them for each recipe, but you can just as easily pre-mix a certain amount and use it cup for cup in the place of regular flour.

As a gluten-free baker, I shy away from the “gluten-free” recipes on the internet.  They are often long and confusing and include weird ingredients I don’t have on hand.

I have had excellent luck subbing this flour blend cup for cup with regular flour in recipes.  

I recommend purchasing these flours in bulk from your local health food store, or from a natural food supplier like Azure Standard.  I generally buy the organic version of these flours.

The main reason I settled on these three for the blend is that they are some of the most affordably priced gluten-free flours I have found.  I can generally find all three of them priced less than 2 dollars per pound when I buy in bulk, which is amazing!

Most recipes call for 2 cups of flour, so in this recipe I will give the measurements to make 2 cups of the flour blend.

You can  double, triple, or make even more of the blend and store it pre-mixed in your pantry.  

If you want it to last even longer, I recommend making a place for it in your refrigerator.

When you are just starting out, I would recommend sticking to quick breads, bars, and cookies.  Not every recipe will adapt perfectly, but when you are on a gluten free diet, you don’t need perfect!!!  Freshly baked gluten-free goodies are far better than anything you will ever find in a box on the shelf at your supermarket. 

I recommend you try my Banana Bread Muffin Recipe with this flour blend, you won’t be disappointed!

  1. Like you, I store my gluten-free flours separately and mix them as needed. These are some of my favorites, especially sorghum. There is lots of confusion out there about xanthan gum, but there are plenty of alternatives for those who don’t want to use it. But I use xanthan gum in most of my gluten-free baking.

  2. In your effort to be healthy, did you know that Xanthan Gum is another word for MSG? I thought I would throw that out there. Not sure if that is something that you are looking out for but it also has a host of side effects (some similar to what you mentioned in another article about gluten). That is one thing that has caused a problem among our family. 🙂

      1. Patti, thanks for chiming in. It didn’t sound true to me either, but I figured if she was set on having her opinion heard she could share some of her “references” with me on the subject. Since that never happened, I sort of just forgot about it.
