Paleo Flour Blend – All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Substitute

Paleo Flour Blend – All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Substitute – make your own all purpose Paleo flour blend with this recipe using just four ingredients.  Gluten free.

One of the trickiest parts of Paleo and gluten free baking is finding the right combination of grain free flours to include in your recipes.  There are a few acceptable gluten free flour blends on the shelf at the grocery store but if you want to save a few bucks, I always recommend going the homemade route!

I came up with this recipe after much trial and error.  This combination of flours seems to result in the best texture and consistency in my favorite baked goods.  I’m always a fan of shortcuts and convenience while cooking.  Rather than measure out separate flours for every recipe, make a batch of this gluten free flour and use it multiple times!

How to Make Paleo Flour

To make this Paleo flour blend the right consistency, start by sifting the almond flour.  Almond flour tends to be slightly clumpy and sifting it makes a finer consistency flour.  Combine the sifted almond flour with the other ingredients and whisk well.  Store the Paleo flour in a mason jar or other air tight container.  Before using, be sure to give it a stir and when measuring, use the spoon method by scooping the flour into a measuring cup and leveling with a knife.

Paleo Flour Recipe

By combining the right ratio of gluten free flours, you can recreate an all purpose flour that can be used in lots of baked goods.  Almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour come together in this recipe for the perfect paleo flour blend.  If you’re new to Paleo/gluten free baking, start with a simple muffin recipe and substitute the flour for this Paleo flour.

How to Use Paleo Flour Blend

Use in place of all purpose flour for breading chicken and fish.

    Any suggestions for those who can’t use coconut in this blend?

      I haven’t done it myself, but you could try replacing the coconut flour with additional almond flour. The texture may just be a little different is all.

    I have arrowroot powder, but no tapioca flour. Can I double the arrowroot powder, or can I sub in something like xanthan gum or flaxmeal?

      Hi – I haven’t tried it but I think subbing the arrowroot should be okay!

    If it’s paleo flour why does it have so many carbs in it? or is the 61g for the whole recipe, if so then how many would equal a cup of it?

      Hi there – that’s the carb count per 1 cup of flour. Paleo doesn’t necessarily equal low carb…the carbs come from the tapioca and arrowroot.
