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 it.....now 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.

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
