Shauna James' gluten-free Flour Mix
0

9 posts in this topic

I would like to try her gluten-free flour mix formula, but cannot use millet flour. Does anyone have a suggestion for substitutions? Brown rice flour doesn't seem to have any flavor and amaranth I use in small quantities.

I'm interested in hearing what you would use.

Here's the short demo:

200 grams sorghum

200 grams millet

300 grams potato starch

300 grams sweet rice flour

Shauna's theory is that there is an optimal ratio of starches/whole grain flours. I wouldn't substitute tapioca, arrowroot or cornstarch for the millet, any of the others would work, depending on the taste you are going for and what you are making. Just substitute the same number of grams.

The problem you get is that if you use something like almond meal or coconut flour is that it absorbs liquids differntly than millet does, so that will affect the end product. Bean flours give things a distinctive taste that some people don't like. Quinoa is useful, buckwheat is good but has a distinct taste/feel,as does teff. I use almond meal a lot in cookies and brownies as I like the taste.

Tapioca, cornstarch and arrowroot are all starches, so I don't think they would work. Her formula is 40% (400 grams) wholegrains, 60% starches (600 grams).

Great list! I have some chickpea flour never opened. Hum. That might just work. It's a bean flour, not wholegrain, but still...might work.

That's what I said. I said they wouldn't work.

The way I experiment:

I throw batches of stuff together, make up a pancake batter or waffle and go from there.
