Why You Will Love This Recipe!
Having a gluten free child has been a bit of an adventure. There is definitely a learning curve involved and a whole new world of ingredients that I never knew existed before!
This recipe was shared with me by a gluten free friend. She said you could use it to replace flour in any recipe and you wouldn’t know you were eating gluten free. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical because I had yet to find any gluten free flour blend that when used didn’t have a different taste or different texture.
Well, she was right! This flour mix is amazing. I used it to make my new Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie and aside from a very, very small texture issue that I am probably the only one that noticed, the cookies were delicious. In fact, I had a hard time keeping the other family members away from the cookies so that Cali could get some. They kept asking, “are these really gluten free??”
- Coconut flour
- Rice flour. Could substitute brown rice flour
- Gluten free oat flour. Not all oat flour is gluten free.
- Tapioca flour. This is the same thing as tapioca starch.
- Xanthan gum
Where To Find Gluten Free Ingredients
Most of these items can be found either in the bulk section or the baking section of your local grocery store. Depending on where you live you may have to visit a health food store to find some of them or order through Amazon. Bob’s Red Mill is one of my favorite brands.

Frequently Asked Questions
When stored in an air tight container, it will last for 3-5 months. It can also be frozen and it will last for up to a year.
If you can’t have one of the flours, just use equal amounts of the other ones to replace it. It may effect the taste a bit but should work fine.
