There are three main binders in gluten free baking. Find out more about How Binders Work in Gluten Free Baking.

  1. Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free White Rice Flour, 24 Ounce (Pack of 4)

  3. Authentic Foods Sorghum Flour Superfine 3lbs

    Sorghum is one of my favorite less starchy brands of gluten free flour. The flavor is pretty neutral and it is high in protein, fiber, and iron. It works really well in flour blends. I love this brand because they mill it extra fine, but other brands are also okay to use. You can read more about my favorite blends if you don't want to mix individual flours.

  4. Bob's Red Mill, Potato Starch, 22 Ounce

    Potato starch is important for this blend. As other starches, it helps hold moisture in your baked goods. If you have a nightshade allergy, use arrowroot starch in place of this starch, or use more tapioca starch. I used Anthony's brand, but it seems to be unavailable, so this brand is a great option.

  5. Anthony's Organic Tapioca Flour Starch, 2.5 lb, Gluten Free & Non GMO

    Tapioca starch is made from the cassava plant, which adds some chewiness to your baked recipes similarly to wheat. I love this brand because you get a lot more for the money, and they test to ensure their products are gluten free without cross-contamination.

Recipe FAQ:

Why do gluten free bakers use flour blends?

This is a great question, and I get it often. Gluten free flour doesn’t have the gluten that wheat flour has, making it hard to create baked goods that hold together. It will fall apart if you bake something with rice flour or another single grain. When you combine grains, starches, and a binder, your baked goods hold together nicely.

What is the best flour for gluten free baking?

If you prefer to use pre-blended gluten free flour mixes you can buy in most grocery stores, I wrote a helpful article that goes over the best gluten free flour blends and the types of recipes in which each blend performs the best.

What kinds of flour are gluten free?

There are quite a few kinds of gluten free flour that are safe for those on a gluten free diet. Brown and white rice flour, sorghum flour, buckwheat flour, corn flour, millet flour, cassava flour, coconut flour, teff flour, oat flour (must be certified gluten free!), amaranth flour, and almond flour. You can also use specialty flour like coffee, banana, plantain, tigernut, and bean flour.

How do you store gluten free flour blend?

Always store your gluten free flour in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will prevent your flour blend from becoming rancid.

Can you freeze gluten free flour?

Yes, you can freeze this gluten free flour blend. Store in a freezer bag, and squeeze out the extra air.

When using the flour in recipes, can you omit the psyllium husk and add xanthan gum?

Yes, you can omit the psyllium husk from this blend, then add one teaspoon of xanthan gum to your recipe.

  1. Hi Sandi, The dough wasn’t that sticky because I was able to use my cookie scoop. But I think it could’ve used at least another 1/8 cup of flour blend. I had started with 1 cup, then had added another 1/8 cup. I have always wondered if the amount of flour or liquid needed in recipes could be affected with how humid the kitchen is. So now I know how the dough looks and feels; ready for the next time. 🙂

  2. Hello Sandi. I noticed your list above, about which recipes you have tried your own flour blend. I am wanting to use your blend in your Vanilla Wafer recipe and also in your Butter Pecan Caramel recipe. Do you know if someone else has tried your blend in these 2 recipes? Or with your experience, do you think it should work fine?

    1. Hi Mary, I don’t have a note of anyone trying my blend in those two recipes yet. If you try, I would consider starting with 2-3 TBSP less flour and add it back if the dough is sticky. I think my DIY blend absorbs a bit more liquid than some blends and I worry your cookies could be dry. Please come back and let me know how it goes.

      1. Hello again Sandi, I did use your blend to make your Vanilla Wafer recipe and I assume I didn’t use enough flour since they didn’t look at all like your pics. It was just hard to gauge since my dough did not look like yours. But I remember another commenter saying something about being hard to manage the dough, yet the cookies still came out great. And that’s what I think also! The dough was chilled and they still spread too much. I still liked the flavor and crispy texture. And since I wanted them to make GF Rum balls for Jan 1, they were perfect! P.S. when I make the Caramel cookies, I will try to remember to post the comment under that category, ok?

      2. Hi Mary, Thank you so much for your note. I haven’t tested my blend in this vanilla wafer recipe yet, so I really appreciate your testing it. It sounds like you did everything right, I think the corn syrup can make the dough a bit tougher. Was your dough sticky?
