How to make Gluten Free Flour - See how easy it is to make 3 of the most commonly used gluten free flours.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Welcome to the third installment of my Bold Baking Boot Camp. This week we are making our own Gluten Free Flours including Almond FlourOat Flour and Chickpea FlourLast week, I shared Sugar Substitutes Chart and the week before I shared my Weight Conversion Chart

You don’t have to eat gluten free to use nut and oat flours in baking. They are a very common ingredient in today’s world. They give great texture and flavor to your cakes, cookies and recipes in general. I’m going to show you how to make 3 of the most popular gluten free flours with ease and tell you how you can substitute them.

Important note: All of the flours I’m going to show you can replace regular white flour in recipes like cakes, cookies, crepes, cupcakes etc. However because of their different texture and density you generally don’t substitute a gluten free flour for the same amount of a nut flour, 1:1. Gluten free flours aren’t generally as fine as regular white flours so they will absorb liquids differently and that’s why you will use less flour to counter that.

How to Substitute Almond Flour: Substitute 1 cup of regular white flour for roughly 1/3 -1/2 cup Almond Flour (aka Almond Meal). I say roughly because it really depends on the recipe you are making.

How to Substitute Oat Flour: Substitute 1 cup of regular white flour for 1 1/3 cup. Note if it seems too stiff then use less and also you can add more liquid.

How to Substitute Chickpea Flour: Substitute 1 cup of regular white flour for 3/4 cup Chickpea flour.

Love making my own flours and thank you for showing me how. I have heard of coconut flour and clueless how it is made and I’m not willing to pay $6 a pound at the store. It’s used with the Atkin’s
diet recipes. I’m thinking it could be the leftover from making coconut milk, dried then whirled in the blender to a fine grind. Comments…..suggestions….

Do you find the almond flour is bitter? I discovered I had to blanche the almonds first and remove the skin or it was very bitter.

Hi Gemma,

Thanks for showing us how to make the various kinds of gluten free flours! I am going to try to make them all soon to see which one I like best! I am curious as to the name of the high speed blender that you used in your video and where I could buy one like it.

Thanks,
Connie

What gluten free flour do you recommend for making self-rising flour used in your scone recipe?

Is there any substitute for all purpose flour, not strictly gluten free but if we realize we ran out of it while preparing pancake batter?
