Eli's Basic GF Baking Flour

Updated: Feb 2, 2021

Here it is! Eli's tried and tested, gluten-free baking flour recipe! It's cheap, simple, and most importantly, delicious! Just not by its self. I love this blend so much! It‘s only 5 ingredients, it's versatile, and (call me weird), fun to make!

Yields 4 1/2 cups (easy to multiply!)

Difficulty: Easy


A Quick Note:

I really suggest to all gluten-free bakers to switch to blending their own flour mixes instead of buying them. Over the years, I struggled to always be able to afford store-bought gluten free blends. They can be as expensive as 10+ dollars for 1lb (especially the good ones), while regular glutenous flours remain just ~$4! It was beginning to feel really unfair that because I was born with this allergy/intolerance, it meant having to spend more money to be able to bake.

However, a few months ago, my friend suggested to me that I could mix my own GF flour blend, and when I started to, I realized how much cheaper it is, and I understood the freedom it gave me.

Not all gluten free flour mixes at the store are great for every type of baked good. Some are better for cookies and cakes, some for yeasted doughs, etc. And its not their fault. Its just not possible for there to be one GF flour blend great for everything. But through building my own mix, I learned what many kinds of GF flours, gums, and starches did to my bakes and was able to apply that knowledge into my next attempt until I had finally resulted with the perfect blend & ratio! This gluten free baking flour is versatile to cookies, cakes, breads, and even pastry. Its great for any recipe you‘ll ever see on this site, and for many, its suggested you use it over any other blend. I love this flour so much, and I really hope you do too!



  • 2 cups brown rice flour

  • 1 cup white rice flour

  • 1/2 cup millet flour (Sorghum would work too, you'll just have mildly different results)

  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour (also called tapioca starch.)

  • 1/2 cup potato starch

This recipe is easy to multiply! I usually double it to make 9 cups at a time.



  1. Combine and whisk all ingredients together in a bowl until the blend is homogeneous.

  2. Store in jars, or another container, bake with it, and enjoy!
