Stuff We Love: Gluten Free Mama's Coconut Blend Flour

12:55 PM

So, we’re huge fans of flours. Like, huge fans. We have bags and boxes and jars of flour everywhere—on multiple shelves pantry shelves and in both our fridge drawers. We have mixes and starches and gums and enough white powder to make your eyes cross. This is sort of a dream thing for me. I fell head-over-heels in love with the movie Stranger Than Fiction a few years ago, especially this one scene where IRS-worker Will Ferrell romantically brings gorgeous baker Maggie Gyllenhaal flours. You know, like flowers, but flours. This was before my diagnosis and, honestly, I didn’t know that other flours existed. Who uses them? Why? Now I get it, of course.
Thanks for the image, Michelle :)
We’ll devote a whole post in the not-so-distant future to a breakdown of gluten free flours. Sometimes we make our own blends from scratch, but sometimes we find great blends that perform well and save us time. Today we’re reviewing one of those: Gluten Free Mama’sCoconut Blend Flour.

As hinted at in the name, this isn’t 100% coconut flour—it’s a white rice flour mix that includes a little bit of coconut. The coconut flour addition is great because it’s high in fiber and low in carbs, but it’s always used in a blend and is usually no more than 20% of the total. Since sometimes things like that can get confusing, pre-mixed blends like this can save a lot of time.

Gluten Free Mama’s Coconut Blend Flour is wonderfully smooth. It claims to have a “unique ‘tangy’ sweet taste,” but we haven’t necessarily picked up on that (granted, we made waffles with apples so the flavor may have been masked). You use it cup-for-cup with any recipe and it’s great; so far, we haven’t seen it get tough or crumbly as other blends can sometimes do.

The blend contains: White Rice Flour, Tapioca Flour, Potato Starch, Coconut Blend Flour and Sweet Rice Flour.

Allergen Alert: The blend is produced in a facility that works with almonds, and some highly allergic consumers report a cross-contamination issue. If this might be a problem for you, please consider a different alternative.

Have you tried this blend before? We tried it out on some delicious waffles. Stay tuned—we’ll share them tomorrow!
