Since we’re nuts about gluten-free products, we know that gluten-free cooks may need to blend several kinds of gluten-free flour to achieve the desired taste and consistency of baked goods.

While almond flour and gluten-free all-purpose baking flour are the most versatile of gluten-free flours, our guide to flour blends and flour nutrition offers a few suggestions if you want to mix things up. You can read more about our  Certified Gluten-Free flours on our gluten-free flour page.  If you have your own favorite gluten-free flour blend, please share it in the comments!

    My favorite flour blend for regular gluten free baking is: 1 part brown rice flour, 1 part sorghum flour, and 1 part arrowroot starch! And for low glycemic baking I love using almond flour and coconut flour! Here’s my guide on my blog about gluten free flours..http://gingerlemongirl.blogspot.com/2010/07/gf-baking-101-gluten-free-flours.html I LOVE this pictorial guide you have created though! I am definitely sharing this on my facebook page! Thanks so much!!

    Just a note about my all-purpose mix… I now add 1 additional part of garbanzo flour. And I use only half of the xanthan gum (which is not listed in this graphic) as in the original post.

    Thanks for using my blog & recipe!!!

    I love this web site. I am trying to be gluten free and this is the best place I’ve found…But I found it accidentally! I came to Nutsonline for the pumpkin fudge sample and nuts, and found so much more!

      Hi there, Linda! We found a recipe for gluten-free empanada dough that only uses gluten-free all-purpose flour and xanthan gum right here: http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/empanada-dough-2-0/. We’ve never tried it, but it has great reviews. If you decide to try the recipe, make sure to let us know how the empanadas turn out!

    Are there any gf all-purpose flour blends that don’t use sorghum flour? I have plenty of other flours to use up and don’t want to have to buy just one kind of flour if I don’t have to. Thanks!

    My wife is celiac and is also allergic to rice, potatoes, wheat & most nuts. We are seniors and need some easy bread recipes possibly using Quinoa or Tapioca flours that don’t add in with other flours. We have a bread machine too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    New to gluten free baking and I would like to know how to substitute flour blends for regular all-purpose in recipes. Which flour does not leave the gritty consistency?

    Hi, guys!

    I was very impressed with the speed with which I received my order–the 2nd day after I put it online! I’ve just ordered a couple of corn products, and am looking forward to their arrival. You guys are the greatest! I really loved the box with all the printing all over.

    I am diabetic and need low glycemic flours for bread without grit. Are almond and coconut flours the best / the only ones good for us diabetics?

      Hi Holly! Thanks for your question. Yes, we recommend almond flour and coconut flour because they are smooth flours that have naturally low carbohydrate levels.
