Gluten-Free Flour Blend

We have a special message from Dana to kick off this week’s special recipe…

“With the holiday season coming up, it’s always a good idea to make sure all diets can be accommodated, especially when it comes to treats! I’m probably giving away too much here, but I think our GF peeps deserve the opportunity to see if this is something they like and can use. I have used this blend for pie dough, baked donuts and more. It takes a bit of trial and error, but this flour blend can usually be used as a straight-across swap for all-purpose flour.”

How thoughtful is that? Dana’s giving away trade secrets to ensure you enjoy the holidays in full, no matter your dietary restrictions.

Whatever you do, don’t skip the xanthan gum! This is what adds a bit of elasticity back into whatever you’re making. Gluten’s job is to provide that, and since gluten isn’t invited to this party, it’s xanthan’s job to add it back in.
Some of these ingredients can be found at your local Asian market (for a fraction of the price). However, if you are looking for strictly organic ingredients, there is no guarantee you’ll find what you’re looking for at some of these markets and your best bet might be to try the bulk section at your local organic market (Sprouts, etc) or use some of the flours found in the links below.
