How do you make Grain-Free recipes that taste real but without using traditional ingredients?
Easy, my secret ingredient is ✨Unicorn Farts✨! Okay, not really, but that’s what I tell people when they ask what I eat. The secret is this Grain-Free Flour Blend!
It’s designed to act like white flour. How did I do it?
Well in white flour, there are three main components: starch, protein, and fiber. So I found flours that are heavy in starch, protein, and fiber, and blended them together. A little chickpea flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour, and it’s pretty darn close to the original!!
Once I found the flours that were readily available in most grocery stores, it was time to try some ratios.
All the recipes here on our site use this one flour blend. We use it so often, we blend 5 pounds at a time. (2lbs tapioca, 2lbs chickpea, 1lb coconut)
Welcome To Break A Recipe!
My name is Nina, I’m a food nerd who cooks and bakes without gluten, grain, dairy, egg, soy, corn, almond, cashew, peanut, and a few other foods.
Whenever I tell people this, they often ask,
What’s left to cook with?
I enjoy answering with “Unicorn Farts, of course!”
After we’ve finished laughing, I get to explain that I use simple ingredients like chickpea flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour to recreate the foods I’m craving without grains or allergens!
Since my allergies were diagnosed in 2012, I’ve developed recipes for breads, cakes, cookies, pies, pizzas and more without grains or most top allergens!
