Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix Recipe

March 23, 2014 8 Comments | Disclosure

It’s not the end of the world, but it’s a challenge, and I’m learning.  My daughter-in-law and grandson suffer from celiac disease.   Both of them were terribly sick until gluten was removed from their diets.  For a time I was completely baffled by what to serve for family get-togethers.  Over time I have learned how to read labels and cook for them.  Thank heavens adapting recipes is becoming easier all the time!

I purchased expensive small boxes of gluten free flour and cake mixes out of pure love.  Now I’m saving money by making my own Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix.  There are many recipes out there and this is my favorite all purpose GF mix.

Carefully clean and prepare the area where you will be making up your mix.  It needs to be completely gluten free.  I have learned to really think about this!  For example, I have a mill that would easily grind brown rice, but I grind wheat in my mill, so I can’t use it.  My Vitamix Blender does a very good job.  I blend the rice, then the quinoa, and so on, one at a time.  When I’m all through I can place my blender in the dishwasher.  Oh, and also be careful not to contaminate your mix by using a spoon or whisk you mixed pancake batter with.

I make cookies, pizza dough, and cakes with this mix.  It makes a nice gift for family and friends who can’t tolerate gluten. Store the mix in an airtight container.   I like large glass jars that keep well in my refrigerator to prolong freshness. Make up a batch and try it.  Also, please come back and share how you use it in our comments below.  Over time I hope to share more ideas with you too.

Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix Recipe

There are several wheat-free flour mixes available. I've found them to be very expensive and some are better than others. Try this Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix. On pizza night I make a mean calzone for my GF grandson, Spencer!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sorghum flour
  • 2 cups brown rice flour (I use superfine brown rice flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups potato starch, not potato flour
  • 1/2 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup sweet rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup amaranth flour
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flour

Instructions

  1. Sift each ingredient into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Thoroughly mix all ingredients with a large whisk.
  3. Store mix in a large container, in the refrigerator or a cool dark location.
  4. Label the container Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix

Notes

When you are putting the mix together, make sure that you are working in an area free of all gluten.

If you want to blend grains, beans, fruit smoothies, you name it, Vitamix TurboBlend 2 Speed Blender  is a work-horse in the kitchen.   Mine goes through the dishwasher at least once a day…hurrah!

    Do you use your regular Vitamix container or did you buy the extra one for grains? Do you grind the sorghum, amaranth, and sweet rice into flour or do you buy it? Where locally can we get these ingredients in bulk at a reasonable price? Going to try going more gluten free and wondered if WINCO has these ingredients in bulk, or where to get them. Thanks you.

    • Michelle says:

      Winco does have a lot of them in bulk but not all of them. The rest Bobs Red Mill makes.

    • Helen, I have purchased products at Fred Meyer, Winco, Whole Foods and Boise Co-op. Another good source for buying in larger quantity is Honeyville Grain and they charge a standard shipping fee. I collect a large order with family and friends and we all share the shipping.

      I just use my regular Vitamix jar and blade. If I was making lots of bread day to day it would be worth the investment to buy the dry blade and jar. I make the 8 cup recipe about once a months to make treats and gluten free foods for these 2 members of my family.

      Thanks for your good questions!

      • Here’s another option for those in the Boise area, my DIL says she buys large bags of gluten free flour more reasonably priced at Cash and Carry. She likes it real well for making bread in her bread machine.

    Am I overseeing additional recipes or do you just substituted this for regular flour?

    • I use this in place of all-purpose flour Barbara. I have had good success with it, especially for making white sauce, pizza dough, and cookies.

  3. Love this Renee! Thank you!!
