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 the growing gluten free population. 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 πŸ™‚ 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. Nudge nudge–move over, BobΒ πŸ™‚


5 cups white (or brown or mixture of both) 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!


Gluten Free Cranberry Pecan White Chocolate Chunk CookiesΒ

Stir in cranberries, oats, pecans, orange peel and remaining baking chips.Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until light brown.

        busy with spring cleaning. Healthy since I am the one who walks the dogs and am out side in the snow. But that is to be expected I guess. Cheesecake day is coming in a month or two so I have that to work on. Have a great weekend! πŸ˜€
