Gluten Free All Purpose Flour: A Quick, Easy & Delicious Replacement

I wanted to develop an inexpensive and easy flour recipe to deliciously swap wheat for all of us gluten free people. After a few attempts here’s my best concoction. Use as you would regular flour in cakes, pies, breads, muffins and even as a thickener for sauces. Replace it cup for cup. Even double the batch because you may need more 🙂 There are many good gluten free bread recipes on the net. Simply find one you prefer and use this flour, cup for cup, as the replacement. Your tummy and taste buds will thank you. Bob’s move over 🙂

5 cups white (or brown) rice flour

3 cups tapioca flour

1 cup arrowroot powder

1 1/2 cups potato starch

2 tablespoons xanthan gum

1 tablespoon salt


In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 year.

Note: Yeast breads & doughs will not rise as high due to the need for high glutens, but it still tastes great & makes super sandwiches & pizza!
