Uses For Bob's Red Mill gluten-free All-Purpose Flour

6 posts in this topic

I have a bag or two of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Flour. I am one of those people who can immediately pick out the bean flavor when I use it in baked goods, but I originally bought a bunch of it because it was on sale. Too bad, because the texture it produces is really nice. Does anybody have any recipes where they can stand the taste of the flour? I'm wondering if bread or anything else not meant to be sweet would taste better...Just thought I would ask. We are moving soon, so anything that we are not planning on using in the future will preferably be eaten before we move.

I use it in muffins or anything else where there's a lot of other ingredients to hide the taste. We made the mistake recently of using it for molton chocolate cakes and it was terrible and disgusting! Tasted beany.

I thought the banana bread was pretty good. There is a recipe on the website. It wasn't the greatest but I also bought a whole lot of it when I found it discounted at Big Lots.

I also like the pizza crust, and am going to use the pizza crust recipe as a basis for an idea I have for focaccia. I do notice that there is a bit of a strongish flavor to it, but I think it is the strong flavors of the sauce, and pepperoni that help. For the focaccia I am thinking of putting onions and garlic cut up in the dough. I haven't had time to try it though.

Texas Pecan-banana bread

Karen Morgan

Blackbird Bakery

4 very ripe bananas

1 1/2 cups Bobs Flour

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) room temp

2 large eggs

2/3 cup organic buttermilk

2 teaspoons vanilla

2/3 cup pecans

Butter 5x9 loaf

oven 350

BAKE the bananas after piercing skin several times. 15 minutes at 350.

Let bananas cool, mash in bowl, set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt mix on low speed to blend.

Add butter, on low, until blended. Add eggs and mix on medium speed until blended.

Reduce speed to low, add buttermilk, bring speed up to high until batter is light and fluffy. Add banana pulp, vanilla, and pecans. STIR to blend. Pour into loaf pan, cover with foil, bake 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden skewer comes out clean. Let cool

in pan for 10 minutes, invert on wire rack and let cool.

After note: I found this too be too runny and I used 2 cups of flour. But I didn't add it till after I was all done. I also used brown sugar. This is REALLY good!

Thanks!!! I will look into all of those things. I also have the Babycakes cookbook. I forgot that many of her recipes a use this flour. I was not impressed with the cookies, but I will take the advice of using recipes with a lot of ingredients to hide the taste. I am hoping to use all of this flour up so I am done and over with that I have been doing this for a year, I have figured out that there is really no magic flour mixture to use with everything. I have had better baked goods by buying the individual bags of flour and using the right mixture for the right thing, though it does take up a lot of pantry space.

You might like to try baking pumpkin muffins with lots of spices -- that might hide the bean taste.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it. Thank You,
