GLUTEN FREE BAKING FLOUR MIX RECIPE
There is no need to buy an expensive gluten free baking mix or flour when you own a Vitamix or Blendtec blender!
Another cost saving feature is both blenders act as a professional grain mill, so you can easily make your OWN inexpensive gluten free flour.
Many gluten-free items have a long list of ingredients, however this baking mix recipe requires only 4 and makes 6.5 cups of flour.
Keep this baking mix on hand (store in the freezer) so that you can whip up gluten free pankcakes or waffles anytime.

Is this used as a 1:1 ratio compared to normal flours?
Hey Amanda! Yes it is if you are replacing all purpose flour. 🙂
We like to cook in our bathing suits! We've transitioned into active wear – however we will always have a special place in our hearts for bikinis!! 🙂
Can this be a substitute for all-purpose flour? Or is it meant to be used in place of something else? I have several friends with Celiac disease, and buying the gluten-free all-purpose flour substitutes can get pricey.
Yes Andrew, this is absolutely a substitute for all purpose flour, and less expensive than buying gluten free flour. Your friends must love you! Welcome to Blender Babes! 🙂 xo
Could you use arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch (trying to avoid GMOs)?
Great question Lindsey, we have never tried with arrowroot. We did find this article that was helpful. If you try it let us know how it turns out and we will update the recipe for others who have the same concern 🙂
Ive made my own with tapioca flower, arrowroot and grass fed gelatin – all are good subs for cornstarch
Yes we recently used arrowroot powder as well. Will update the post. THANKS EVERYONE!! 🙂
I do not have a Blendtec or a Vitamix, can I use my regular blender to make this recipe?
Hi Sarah, that’s a great question. Regular blenders typically are between 350-700 watts and do not have the power to grind grains (the rice) into flour. Blendtec & Vitamix are commercial grade blenders and have enough power (1100-1560 watts!) to do this. If you have a more powerful than average regular blender (check the wattage), it MAY be able to handle grinding up the rolled oats, however use caution as we do not want you to break your blender! You could then purchase rice flour, so that might be something to try to still make gluten free baking mix. 🙂
