My Personal Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend

Buying pre-made Gluten Free All Purpose Flour can be costly and you never know how well it will work. When I first went GF, I would buy the pre-made flour and every time I made something it came out different. Spending $10 on a few pounds of flour adds up when you bake a lot. I started to experiment with some different flour mixtures and this one has NEVER let me down.

This is all I use. My Husband even noticed a difference when I bought Namaste flour when it was on clearance. He made pancakes and was so mad that they wouldn’t turn out. This Brown Rice Flour blend has the perfect mix of rice flour and starch. I make cookies, breads, muffins, pie crust, cake, absolutely everything with it. I don’t like to add the xanthan gum directly to it, I prefer to add it if the recipe calls for it because things like pancakes and pie crusts might not call for it.

I am confident once you start using this blend it will be your go-to. Please let me know how you like it!

Print Recipe


  • 4 Cups Brown Rice Flour
  • 1 Cup Potato Starch
  • 1 Cup Tapioca Starch or Flour


  • 1)

    Blend all of the flours together and store in an air tight container in your pantry.


If you have a potato allergy you can use all tapioca starch in place of it. I prefer to leave the xanthan gum out of my all purpose flour and add it as needed according to the recipe instructions.



4 Cups Brown Rice Flour
1 Cup Tapioca Flour

1 Cup Potato Starch (You can substitute this for corn starch if needed, but I recommend potato)

I prefer to make mine without the xanthan gum but if you want it in your mix for convenience then follow below.

3 tsp. of Xanthan Gum(Optional- but remember to add it to your recipes if you do not put it in your flour) I love ordering these flours on Amazon prime and keeping them on my subscribe and save so I never run out! The prices are great too!!

My rule of thumb is 1 tsp. of xanthan gum for every 2 cups of flour.




Add all the flours to a bowl and stir until well combined. Enjoy!
