I am looking for a substitute for rice and corn flour in the gluten free mixes you make yourself. I want to make some bread, muffins, donuts, anything but don't know what will work as a substitute for the rice flours that most of the receipes call for.
Thanks for your help.

27 years of misdiognoses
seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet
rheumatoid arthritis May 1980
wrist joint replacement Jan 1984
fibromyalgia May 1980
insomnia since the 80's
diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds
Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea
Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:
depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.
Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

I like to use amaranth flour instead of rice flour. It is more nutritious than rice flour, and it does not have a strong taste. I actually like the taste it does have. I'm not sure about corn flour, but you should be able to replace it with just about anything.

I use sorghum flour for just about everything. It has a taste very similar to wheat. You can get the Bob's Red Mill from many stores. Or you can order it online from Twin Valley Mills (which is better and cheaper). I have taken some recipes and just exchanged it one and one for wheat (such as shortbread, mexican tea cakes, pumpkin bread). Also, there are recipes at Twin Valley's website. Here's a flour-combo mix with sorghum that works with almost everything - 2 cups sorghum, 1 1/2 cups potato or corn starch, 1 cup tapioca (and substitute that for all the flour in the recipe). I have many sorghum recipes, and a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is definitely as good or better than regular chocolate chip cookies. When I have a little more time, I e-mail it to you.

I was going to second sorghum as being a good substitute. I don't bake much (actually it's been almost 7 months since I've baked anything! wow!) but I have had good results with sorghum.

As a sub for cornstarch, I use arrowroot starch. It works fine.

I also sub sorghum flour instead of rice flour and use the same combo as Armita does. The bread in my avatar is from www.twinvalleymills.com, modified for a few more allergies though.

Armita, I'd love for you to PM me the chocolate chip cookie recipe too when you have a chance (if it doesn't have a ton of eggs in it).

I have been reading about some of you using coconut flour and having good results. But having to add a lot of eggs. Does anyone know what the adaptions would be if I substituted coconut flour. I am wanting to try several different ways of doing this.
Thanks again,
Yellow Rose

Armita when you get time I would love the recipe for your cookies!!!
Thanks,

Sorghum Recipes:

Chocolate Chip Cookies #1
3/4 cup sorghum flour (Twin Valley)
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1 tsp zanthum gum
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil OR palm shortening OR lard (no soy or casein)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla (gluten free)
1 egg (or egg replacer)
1 cup chocolate chips (enjoy life or chocolate emporium if you want soy & casein free)
1/4 cup nuts
Bake on 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Chocolate Chip Cookies #2 - has some rice flour
7/8 cup sorghum flour
1/8 cup garbanzo flour
1/8 cup sweet rice flour
1 tsp zanthum gum
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening (see above for soy & casein free alternatives)
3/8 cup granulated sugar
3/8 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips (see above for soy free)
Bake on 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Sugar cookies -- Rolls out easier than wheat!
2 1/2 cups easy sorghum flour mix (see below)
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons zanthum gum
1 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening (see above for alternatives)
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla

add potato starch or flour mix as needed until you can knead it. It is OK to work the dough as much as you want (or not to).

Easy Sorghum Flour mix: 6 cups sorghum, 6 cups corn starch, 5 cups tapioca.
Can substitute arrowroot starch. Can substitute potato starch but lesson amount to 4 cups.
CAN actually use ONLY sorghum flour (it won't be a total flop like some of the rice recipes).

Thanks, Arpita! We're in the mood for some cookies today so I'll be making some!

Do you always order your flour through Twin Valley? I have emailed them a few times and gotten no response so I wasn't sure. Should I call them? Is their flour better than BRM?

Hi Arpita,

Your recipe #1 looks great, and I'd like to try it. I'm wondering if I could sub cornstarch for the tapioca since I'm intolerant to tapioca?
