Having a hard time finding a gluten-free substitute for all-purpose flour? With just a few simple ingredients this flour works well in most recipes. Try it next time you make gluten-free brownies or chocolate cake!
I have to admit, I have a bit of sweet tooth. I do believe in the occasional indulgence but everything in moderation of course. Since my house is gluten-free, creating the right flour blend has been an interesting experience. Gluten is a protein and binding agent that can be found in wheat and other grains. It helps the dough rise and give it a chewy, elastic type texture. Gluten develops when the proteins in wheat flour are transformed by water. The recipe may be affected when substituting with gluten-free flours. Who likes their dessert dense, grainy or tasteless? Yuk😝
I found this flour mixture to be the right combination, easy to make and great to store in bulk for future use. Storing flours in glass jars in the refrigerator will prolong their shelf life. Most importantly this blend works well with almost any recipe that I have tried so far.
The ingredients can also be interchanged. Below is a list of several alternative options available. If I have a recipe that requires 1 cup flour occasionally I replace 1/2 cup of my gluten-free flour with 1/4 cup almond flour and 1/4 cup millet flour just to change up the taste. Keep in mind flours react differently in certain recipes so you might have to play around and find one that works best for you. I would love to hear what you come up with!
