A gluten free Cheat Sheet to make baking easier

This cheat sheet makes a great kitchen accessory, so feel free to print, share or pin! Just take a quick look at your cheat sheet whenever you would like to convert a recipe.

Bear in mind that a gluten containing recipe you’ve known well will change a little when converted. Have patience with your new ingredients, and try your way to a great result.

For additional flour mixes and info on gluten free flours, please visit This Link.

There is a difference between Grains and Starches. The grain flours have a higher protein content and are used differently to the starches. The wonderful Glutenfreegirl has made a useful list of what flours come under what category:

Whole Grain Flours:

  • Brown rice flour
  • Buckwheat flour
  • Maize flour (read about the differences between maize/corn flours here)
  • Mesquite flour

  2. Hi. I’m from Slovenia, small country in Europe and so glad to find your blog. My mum has gluten intolerance and she is making her own bread with corn flour and with gf flour mix that you can buy in store, but it always comes out very dry. Now that i found your site i’m going to surprise her and make her a bread, just to show her that can be done, because she lost will for baking. Thank you soooo much !
