Multi-Grain Flour Blend

I like this blend for sandwich bread, sandwich rolls and wraps.

1 cup brown rice flour

1 cup garbanzo bean flour
1 cup sorghum flour
1 cup arrowroot starch
1 cup potato starch
1 cup tapioca starch
1/2 cup amaranth flour or quinoa flour
1/2 cup teff flour or millet flour

Sift all ingredients together and store in the refrigerator or freezer. If you don't have arrowroot on hand, substitute 1/2 cup potato starch and 1/2 cup tapioca starch instead.

With this recipe - did you use quinoa flour and millet flour, or the whole grains themselves.

I wasn't sure, so i used the grains (since you didn't say flour), but then I was reading another recipe (Best Ever Biscuits) and you said quinoa FlOUR. So now I'm wondering...

The bread I made using this flour blend with the whole millet and quinoa grains was great, even if that's now how you meant it to be.

Wow, thanks for catching that! It's supposed to be quinoa flour and millet flour, so I'll change it. But I'm glad the whole grains worked well too!

Where does the arrowroot come into play? you mention to substitute it, but I dont see it in the recipe. I was hoping to make biscuits today.

Erin said...

Pretty Pony, that's what I get for messing around and editing my stuff...I've fixed the recipe. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Thanks sooo much! Biscuits with dinner tonight!

Ps- Love the blog! I am pregnant and finding that while I avoided gluten before, I absolutely cannot have it while Im pregnant as it makes me barf! I have about 20 of your GF vegan recipes bookmarked on my to-make list.

Gluten makes you barf? Oh dear! My husband laughs at me when I call non-gluten items "death pizza" or "death muffins" or what-have-you, but sometimes it's true! I'm glad you enjoyed the biscuits. Happy gluten-free pregnancy!

Pretty Pony Inc said...

Thanks! A lot of things make me barf.... gluten is just one of the many things, along with any dairy, anything fried, anything processed, soy, processed soy, and even water at times. I made and ate half a batch of the GF biscuits! They did not make me barf! Thanks (and sorry for the barf reference on a food blog .I should have referred to it as "toss my cookies"... sounds a lot more appetizing that way).

Erin said...

Actually, I think the word "barf" is kind of fun...not the act, just the word! I'm really glad my biscuits did not make you barf. :)

I'm so happy to find your blog as my 6 yrs. old son is newly allergic to many foods and it's hard to know how to feed him! He is allergic to garbanzo and fava beans in addition to soy, corn, glutens, milk, eggs coconut, all nuts, peas, and all fruits except pear. What flour would you recommend I substuitute for the garbanzo bean flour in your GF flour blend recipe? Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Kathleen, I feel your pain! You could substitute rice flour for the chickpea flour, and see how that works. Let me know if it doesn't, and we can work with something else. Good luck!
