For Celiac Awareness Month I’m writing this blog post with 11 Gluten Free Flour Recipes. At my cooking classes, and on social media, I share a table I made demonstrating the variety of gluten free flour combinations people cook with. But that table doesn’t have recipes and people are always asking me for the recipes. Now, I’ve finally done a thorough search and I pulled them all together here.
There’s no limit to the combinations of flours and starches people are using to bake with and there’s no right one. Sometimes you’re focused on getting a recipe to work, At other times you may be more adventurous to improve a recipe or try something new. This is the kind of information that can be helpful.
Gluten free baking is a journey. Simply start where you are and keep baking.
Why 11 gluten free flour recipes? I simply started noticing there were recipes with two and three and four ingredients. As I compared them I learned more and kept coming back to look at the differences. People at my classes found the information helpful so I shared what I had.
Learn As You Go
Bake your favourite recipes over and over. As you bake you’ll become more confident and perhaps more curious. Then you’ll learn to substitute different gluten free flours. Learning to be flexible will serve you well for all these reasons.
- We all run out of ingredients.
- It’s very likely you’ll go to the store one day and they won’t have the ingredient you want.
- Over time your baking may change and you’ll want to try other flours for their nutritional profile, in a specific recipe or just because your curious.
- Allergies and food intolerances can affect people with celiac disease or other family members at any time.
Learning to bake gluten free can be overwhelming. I suggest you start with a few muffin recipes or the specific foods you want to master (cookies anyone). Just know you can make anything you want and if you try you’ll get there.
Organize For Success
The recipe is the easy part. Here are 11 of them.
The hard part is the system, you need a good system. A really good system.
Don’t wait years to get organized like I did, do it now. Whether you’re new to gluten free baking or experienced (yet still a little frustrated), your system (or lack of one) makes all the difference. It’ll save you so much time you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
I do most of my baking with a 4-ingredient gluten free flour mix. If I have a clean counter I can pull out that bucket and make my flour mix in five minutes, maybe less. If you’re ready to reorganize read how I did it in this post, Homemade Gluten Free Flour Mix, or watch my YouTube video and see how I do it.
Get The Tools
These are the tools I have to keep my flour organized and be able to quickly make any mix. I’ve got another, less organized bucket, with other flours too but this system works great for me. If I’m trying a different flour mix my other flours aren’t far away.
- Clear container that easily holds all the things and fits in a convenient location.
- Kitchen Scale for accurate measuring.
- Small plastic bowls of identical weight so they’re interchangeable.
- Clear canisters with wide tops for ease of spooning out flour.
- Mesh strainer to get the lumps out of potato starch.
- Whisks, essential for thoroughly mixing gluten free flours.
- Large GF Flour Mix Container big enough but not too big it can’t fit on the shelf. Mine comfortably holds my recipe that makes 8-cups.
- Smaller wide mouth Jam Jar with Plastic Lids for the leftover flour mix when I’m ready to make a new batch.
When I started to create this table I intended to give credit to the people sharing these recipes. The more I searched the more I found many bloggers are using the same recipes. Since they’re all shared openly on blogs I am offering this collection to home cooks around the world from gluten free food bloggers everywhere.
Let me know in the comments below if you think this table with 11 gluten free flour recipes will be or was helpful for you.
Happy gluten free baking!
