Gluten-Free Recipe: Whole-Grain Flour Mix

By Jean McFadden Layton, Linda Larsen

This recipe makes a gluten-free whole-grain flour mix that’s a good substitute for whole-wheat flour — especially in gluten-free bread and dessert recipes. Having this flour baking mix on hand means you’ll be more likely to make breads or cakes because you can just reach for a mix instead of hauling out several bags of gluten-free flours.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Yield: 14 cups

4-1/2 cups minus 1 tablespoon (600 grams) brown rice flour

4-3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons (600 grams) sorghum flour

3-1/4 cups minus 1 tablespoon (400 grams) millet flour

1-3/4 cups (275 grams) sweet rice flour

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until the mixture is one color.

    Use a wire whisk to stir for best results.

  2. Store in an airtight container and use in baking recipes in place of flour.

Weigh these flours instead of measuring them by volume. You end up with much better results, and you find that with a little experience, weighing is faster than measuring by cups. 1 cup of this mix weighs 135 grams.
