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 Blake, I’m Grain-Free Lifestyle Coach. I’m so glad you stopped by today to check out this blog post on my Grain-Free Flour Blend.

I avoid other allergens as well so every recipe on my blog is made without grain, dairy, egg, soy, corn, almond, cashew, peanut, and sesame.

Whenever I tell people this, they often ask,

What’s left to cook with?

I enjoy telling them I cook with “Unicorn Farts, of course!”

After we’ve finished laughing, I 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!

It’s My Mission To Help You Simplify & Organize

Your Grain-Free Lifestyle!

I remember how much I struggled when I was new to the Grain-Free Lifestyle in 2012. I also remember how wonderful it was to have Grain-Free cookies that Christmas. Those cookies made me feel normal.

To help you simplify and organize your Grain—Free Lifestyle, I’d like to give you a copy of my cookbook 7 Simple Grain-Free Recipes.

Inside you’ll find recipes for fast mac’n cheese, pizza, brownies, and chocolate chip cookies that get rave reviews! While the recipes are simple, they give you the feeling that you aren’t missing out. They’re some of my favorite recipes for sharing.

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)

The Flour is free of soy, gluten, dairy, egg, peanut, cashew and almond, as well as grain free. And is used in my bread, brownies, fried chicken, cereal bars, birthday cake, cupcakes, and more!
