Commercially you can buy a variety of gluten free flour blends. Many of them can be used as direct subs for traditional flours in recipes. Just as we talked about yesterday with the rice flour , these blends come at a premium. In my continued
stubbornness pursuit of excellent homemade alternatives, I have developed a pretty awesome homemade gluten free flour blend.
For my blend I combine:
- 1 cup brown rice flour
- 2/3 cup potato starch
- 1/3 cup tapioca starch
- 2 tsp xantham gum
I put it all in a mason jar, shake it up, and store it in the fridge until it is needed. And shake again before using.
The best part? You can use the brown rice flour from yesterday in the blend!
The even better part? You can use the blend for tons of things! Including these adorable (and delicious) gluten free, vegan, ‘goldfish’ crackers. I simply subbed the gluten free flour blend for the 1 cup of flour in the recipe. I also added some garlic and onion powder, for a bit of a kick.
(I didn’t have a goldfish shaped cookie cutter) (But they still taste amazing)
Have you ever used a (homemade or store bought) gluten free flour blend? What did you think?
