First let me say I'm terrible in the kitchen but I'm trying!

I have a recipe that uses butter, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, baking powder, salt, white chocolate chips and shredded coconut. I made this before I knew I should be gluten-free and it was GREAT. It calls for 2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour. Was wondering what you guys thought would be the right gluten-free Flour. I was going to use Bob's All Purpose but read it has a pretty strong bean smell/taste?

I also have to watch my oxalates so Buckwheat would be no good. I think Tapioca and Potato Starch have acceptable oxalate levels used in small amounts. I would really like to try Bob's but read so many bad things. I have a very sensitive sense of smell and taste. Thanks!

I have not had any success with bobs red mill. If gives a very griitty taste. My personal preference for the rice flours is authentic foods which I mix with ENERG brand tapioca and potato starch. Authentic foods is not sold in many places. If I could only choose from my local grocer I would pick gluten free pantry flour before Bobs red Mill.

This is Annalise Roberts blend from her wonderful cookbook ( everyone should have it) 2c.authenic brown rice flour, 2/3 c. potato starch ( notPotato flour),, 1/3 c. tapioca flouryou would have to add Guar Gum or Xanthan gum. Again the best cookbook...

I have used King arthur blend flour as a good substitute for basic PButter and sugar cookie recipes. You will need to add xantham or guar gum. I am finding guar gum to be less crumbly .

Thanks guys! So 2 cups authentic brown rice flour, 2/3 cup ptoato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and then how much Guar or Xanthan? Again I'm terrible in the kitchen. This is all new to me!

Or King's

One teaspoon of xanthan gum per cup of gluten free flour.

2 cups br rice

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch/flour (they are the same thing in tapioca)

___________

that is 3 three cups. therefore 3 teaspoons. mix well. measure out amount for recipe. put leftover in ziplock bag, label with ingredients and date, store in refrigerator for next adventure.

if you just wanted to use enough to make the recipe, 2 and a 1/4 cups, it would be

1.5 cups brown rice flour

.5 cup (half) cup potato starch

.25 cup (quarter) cup tapioca starch

about two teaspoons of xanthan gum, and maybe a pinch or a quarter teaspoon more, such as making one of the teaspoons rounder.

Other types of gluten free flours or meals may take less xanthan gum than those with a lot of rice flour (example,sometimes I post recipes that don't use any)

There are several acceptable blends of flour out there to try - it will be cheaper for you starting out to just buy a blend than go hunt out and purchase all the specialty flours. I am fond of:

Gluten Free Mamas Coconut Blend for cookies and desserts.

http://www.glutenfreemama.com/sales.htm

She has an Almond Flour Blend for regular baking that does wonders too.

I also like Better Batters Gluten Free Flour Blend

http://shop.betterbatter.org/

Very low maintenance for recipes you are trying to convert.

I am not a huge fan of gluten-free pantry or Bob Red Mill's gluten-free All-purpose flour

I've had success subbing rice flour in every recipe I have tried so far..I'm the type of cook who doesn't measure, but know if it's right by if it "feels" right haha. Any recipe that calls for flour I use half brown, half white, and add a tbsp of potato starch OR tsp of xanthan gum, depending on how "sticky" I think the product will be. For breads I use xanthan gum, for brownies I use potato starch.

Not the easiest way of going about it for some but I have yet to have a cooking disaster..knock wood.. :P

    • Hate to tell you but McDonalds French fries are NOT gluten free.  The "natural beef flavoring" contains wheat.  Their hasbrowns are also fried in the same fryers thus making them NOT gluten free.  Lots of Miss information by this poster.  
    • .....you do know the Mc Ds uses wheat in the fries? FRENCH FRIES Ingredients: Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (Canola Oil, Corn Oil, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Natural Beef Flavor [Wheat and Milk Derivatives]*), Dextrose, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (Maintain Color), Salt. *Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients. Contains: WHEAT, MILK. https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/product/small-french-fries.html

        Being a Hydrolyzed version it might not contain the gluten proteins.....but you said any wheat proteins.
      Side thoughts I would not trust that place, stuff is constantly cross handled and changing gloves between stations does not happen often.
      AVOID fast food restaurants, keep protein pars, prepackaged snacks, etc available in your car and pack meal prep kits.
    • Grew up in a Hispanic half family, and ironically have a bad allergy to corn now....anyway when they get a bit dried out you take 2 large sheet stretch of a paper towel soak, wring it bit then wrap 2-6 tortillas in it put on a plate an zap in the microwave for a bit, this steam cooks them, and if they are dried out a bit from the fridge and falling apart this can make them more pliable. If really dried out wet the tortillas directly.......we never wasted food. PS do not ask for times...I have not eaten them in 5+ years and I break out in a rash from touching corn.
    • Place in a ungreesed non stick pan on med heat and turn after 20 seconds. This is how I cook corn tortillas orig and then reheat as well.
    • It's way too late to help this original poster, but in reading this thread, there's so many things that worry me.... WENDY'S IS THE WORST PLACE TO TRY TO EAT GLUTEN-FREE!!!! They are NOT at all dedicated in ANY way and they are a nightmare to even ask for gluten-free.  I travel A LOT and I can't afford to spend a fortune or tons of time finding gluten-free restaurants that won't make me sick. I eat the Grilled Chicken Sandwich NO SEASONINGS (custom made to order very juicy and delicious - takes 7 minutes to cook and worth the wait) at McDonalds at least twice a week.  I am extremely gluten allergic - extremely sensitive to wheat protein and poisons in our food supply - and allergic to a bunch of other things too (including milk protein - whey, sodium casseinate, and lutein - flax seed, opiates = poppy seeds, and any kinds of grass such as wheat grass, etc).  I order "grilled chicken filet 'a la carte' with no seasonings" and medium french fries. In the mornings, when I can't cook at home, I order 2 round eggs and 1 hash brown.  I NEVER GET SICK AT MCDONALD'S when I order these orders. I search on Celiac.com any time I try to eat out and I rarely end up ordering places because too many people post about getting sick off this or that because so many of us don't know what is making them sick!!!!! People order then think it's got gluten in it when it could be cross- contamination or yeast or milk protein that is making people sick because they aren't aware that with a gluten-allergy undiagnosed for a long time comes a whole long list of these other things we need to watch out for!!!! Sign up for the gluten-free restaurant notification app and use Celiac.com, but ALSO DO YOUR RESEARCH AND GET THE ALLERGY TEST PANEL! If you can afford to pay $500 out of your pocket, get the DNA allergy test.
