For When You're Outta Bob's

Readers have written asking what Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour can be substituted with. Here is the mixture I suggest. Give Saturday Pancakes a try and let me know what you think!

Make Your Own Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour

3/4 cup GARBANZO FLOUR
1/2 cup POTATO STARCH
1/4 cup TAPIOCA STARCH
1/4 cup SORGHUM FLOUR
1/4 cup FAVA BEAN FLOUR

Combine well and store in air-tight container (preferably in refrigerator).

Hi,

I'm wondering what you would suggest to replace the potato starch and sorghum flour? I was thinking possibly arrowroot starch for the potato starch? And coconut flour for the sorghum? Or possibly Amaranth flour? But, I don't know my flours and starches well enough yet to know if those would be good alternatives.

Thank you!

Hi Terah,

I think you are on the right track. You may have to do some experimenting. Off the top of my head here are some mixes to try:

3/4 cup GARBANZO FLOUR
1/2 cup TAPIOCA STARCH
1/4 cup MILLET FLOUR
1/4 cup FAVA BEAN FLOUR

OR

3/4 cup GARBANZO FLOUR
1/3 cup ARROWROOT STARCH
2 tablespoons COCONUT FLOUR
2 tablespoons AMARANTH
1/4 cup FAVA BEAN FLOUR

Try one of these out and let me know : )

No luck on locating fava bean flour at either of the local health food stores. Is there a substitute I could make for that, in a potato starch free version? Thanks!

Bob's Red meal has a garbanzo, fava bean flour. I wonder if that would work?

Is there anything i could use instead of fava bean flour?

I am unable to have beans, rice, corn, grains, gluten, cane sugar, soy, dairy , egg etc. .... Is there a site you can connect me with for basic flour mixing? I miss baking and it seems so dificult to get the right ratios of flour, starch..... And a baking powder that I can have :( it's a lot of searching but any help you can provide would be graciously accepted.
I can have potato, tapioca or arrowroot, buckwheat (?) almond flour, coconut flour...... My blood work wAs off the chart.:) but upside is that I am feeling MUCH better after taking these things out of my diet. Now On To experimenting to Change it up a little :)
