Convenience foods such as cereal, bread, snack bars, and pasta tend to be full of gluten ingredients. For those of us with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, this can be a real challenge.

This is the homemade gluten-free flour blend I use. I fill a big container with this mixture so I can easily grab a cup or two when I’m baking. It includes four ingredients: brown rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, and xanthan gum. The xanthan gum serves as a binder, which is a primary function of gluten.

You can substitute this gluten-free flour mix for all purpose flour in your favorite recipes. It works well in gluten-free bread recipes, as well as cookies, cakes, muffins, biscuits, pancakes, and other baked goods. 

Other GF Flour Options

I love using oat flour in baking recipes as well. These oat flour chocolate chip cookies, oat flour banana bread, and oat flour waffles are delicious recipes featuring gluten-free ingredients. Many people bake with almond flour, too.

Try some of these gluten-free muffin recipes using this homemade blend.

Homemade Gluten-Free Flour Mix Price Breakdown

A cup of this homemade gluten-free flour blend recipe costs $.75, while a cup of white whole wheat flour costs $.15. I actually prefer the gluten-free version to whole wheat flour in many recipes because it’s lighter in texture.


  1. Can you make gluten free flour without brown rice & white rice flour and garbanzo flour? Like millet flour, cassava flour, tapioca flour, almond, coconut and etc?
