How do you make 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 flour!
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)

When you bake with this flour, you’ll be baking just as though you were using white flour. It saves a huge amount of time, and there’s no converting. You blend it up and bake away!
(Remember to use a binder like xanthan gum to hold the rise in breads and baked goods)

I am not grain free, however I am trying to get to know more gluten free and grain free recipes as I know many who are gluten free or grain free. This bread was so delicious. By far one of the best recipes I’ve tasted that was grain free.
Thank you Alisha. One of the highest compliments is when a grain-based friend enjoys my food. Thank you for being willing to try new foods!
Have a delicious day!
I store my flour blend in a large plastic container. It certainly saves time when flour is already pre mixed!
What a great idea! Blend it up ahead of time and it’s ready when you need it!
So how much flour do you put in one recipe of bread? Total 5 cups?
Hi Mary, thanks for checking out Break A Recipe! Once you blend the flour, each recipe will call for a different amount. Breads take a little more than cookies and cakes. So you blend up the flour and then use as much for the recipe calls for. You save the leftover flour for the next recipe just as you would if you were baking with traditional white flour. I blend 5 lbs a time and use it for all my baking! Hope you get to try the recipes. The chocolate chip cookies are always a huge hit! Hope you enjoy them.
i love the simplicity of your recipe for the grain free flour blend. Unfortunately I cannot use any legumes, so that let’s out the chickpea flour. Is there anything else that could work?
Thank you for taking the time to read my recipe and tell me how I can help. No recipe will be safe for everyone, but we can puzzle it out together. Here’s a link with some suggestions for substituting chickpea flour. Are any of these safe for you? https://www.lacademie.com/chickpea-flour-substitutions/
Makes great waffles!!
Thanks for letting us know! I bet they were delicious!
