The Steps

  1. 1. To make oat flour, add gluten free oats to a food processor. Pulse the oats until they break down but still maintain some texture variation. 00:12

  2. 2. Tapioca flour gives the blend starch, which helps the texture of the final baked good. 00:23

  3. 3. Brown rice flour can be gritty. Mixing it with other flours helps improve the texture. 00:30

  4. 4. When making a gluten free flour blend, pair a starch, like a potato or tapioca flour, with another non-wheat flour that has more protein. Sweet rice flour, white rice flour, brown rice flour, and oat flour are examples of high protein gluten free flours. 00:39

  5. 5. Add 1/3 cup of oat flour, 1/2 cup of tapioca flour, and 1 cup of brown rice flour to a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Use as desired. 01:10

What You'll Need

Chef Notes

For recipe accuracy, Chef Coco uses a pastry scraper to level the flour in the measuring cup.

Gluten free flour blends require a starch flour and a protein flour.

Be sure to use a potato starch and not a potato flour, as they are not interchangeable. Tapioca starch, however, is interchangeable with tapioca flour.
