Bean Flour Blend

GF Utah GIG Support Group

Mix ahead and use in recipes calling for Gluten-Free Bean Flour Mix:

3 cups Garfava Bean Flour

1 cup Sorghum Flour

4 cups Tapioca Flour

4 cups Cornstarch

I have found that many recipes which call for gluten-free flour mix work just as well or better using a blend of bean flours combined with other gluten-free flours. These blends are higher in fiber, protein, and other nutrients, have a great smooth texture, and are more filling and satisfying than rice flour blends.  Bean flours work best with flavorful recipes that compliment and mellow the nut-like, slightly bitter flavor of ground beans.  I have had wonderful results using bean flour blends in cookies (Chocolate Chip Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, Graham Crackers), spice cakes (Carrot Cake, Applesauce Bars, Banana Bars), and spice muffins (Apple Cinnamon Muffins, Banana Muffins, Pumpkin Muffins).  

If you would like to purchase Bean Flour Blend premixed, look for:
