This flour blend is gluten-free for those allergic to wheat. Recipe may be halved.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 3 cups garbanzo/fava bean flour (see notes)
  • 2 cups potato starch (see notes)
  • 2 cups cornstarch (see notes)
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup sorghum flour


Mix these together in an airtight container and store in a cool, dark, dry place. Use large canisters with either screw tops or wire-latch closures. You may halve this recipe if you prefer a smaller mix.

Notes: Made by Authentic Foods, Bob's Red Mill, or Ener-G Foods. Also available from other gluten-free vendors such as Miss Roben?s, Gluten-Free Pantry, Gluten Solutions, and Glutino.

If potato starch is inappropriate for your diet, use 4 cups cornstarch. Likewise, if cornstarch is off-limits for you use 4 cups potato starch.

Yield: 9 cups
