MamaShire’s Gluten-Free Baking Blend


MamaShire's Gluten-Free Baking Blend

This is my Gluten-Free Baking Blend that I have been using for several of the recipes in the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.

The THM Baking Blend is featured in many of recipes throughout the new THM Cookbook. While I really like the THM Baking Blend, I wanted to have my own blend that I could tweak and that might be a little less expensive.

My baking blend is not the same as the THM Baking Blend, but it is similar. I like being able to have a big batch made up and ready to go. I’m much more likely to bake something yummy for my family if I have the blend all ready to go.

My blend doesn’t contain almond flour like the THM Baking Blend does, because I already use almond flour in a lot of my recipes and I wanted to have an alternative so that we’re not “always” eating almonds. Seriously, we eat this gluten-free bread  made with almond flour several times a week. Plus, this keeps the cost of the blend down. Win, win.

I have listed all the ingredients below and where I like to purchase them from. You may be able to find coconut flour and golden flaxmeal locally, but the other items will probably have to be ordered online. The initial purchase of these items will add up, but you will be able to get quite a bit of baking blend from them.

Trim Healthy Mamas this flour blend is an FP, but depending on what you bake with it that could change to an S or an E.
This is a very thirsty flour blend, so it you are creating your own recipe be sure to add enough liquids to keep it happy.

    Thanks so much. Once again you are doing all the thinking for me. Your recipes and ideas are making things so easy.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Aww, thank you! and you’re welcome. I always am wanting things to be easier. 🙂

    Does this bake quite similar? I use custom collagen fish because I have a major beef allergy. I also cant afford almond flour right now so ive been meaning to experiment for a while…but I have three boys under four lol

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Emily, if you are wondering if it bakes similar to the THM Baking Blend, then yes, from my testing it is very similar. Or if you are asking about how the fish collagen would bake, I don’t know the answer to that as I haven’t worked with it before. Sorry about the beef allergy, though. But, I am happy for you about your boys! They must make like extra fun.

  3. I’ve been hoping to find a nut free alternative to try some of the thm baking blend recipes from the new book. I’ve excited to have found this. Thank you for sharing!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Mandi, I’m so glad to have helped! I hope it works well for you.

    This is just what I have been looking for! I’m excited to give it a go. Can you tell me what purpose the flax meal is playing in the mix? I would like to leave it out, or find a different ingredient. I like that this is nut free. What do you think?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Karen,

      Good to hear from you! Hear are a few of my thoughts.

      The flax meal is giving the recipe several things – 1) it gives the mix a nice flavor, a little bit more of a wheat taste 2) it gives the mix a great nutritional boost with its omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans and fiber 3) it helps give the mix some bulk and texture.

      Could you leave it out? Yes. I haven’t tried it without, but if you have an allergy to it, by all means leave it out. But, if you don’t have an allergy to it, I would recommend using it. It isn’t expensive and the nutritional benefits are impressive.

      I’m not sure what flour to recommend that would have the same benefits, but you could try whole psyllium husks. You could play with the ingredients on a smaller scale and try the blend without the flax and see what you think.

      Let me know if you try it without and how it turned out.

    Thanks again. I am getting the flax this morning and will start out just as you have it here. I am so excited to mix up a batch and start baking! My other question is… Do you use this cup for cup like the recipes in the THM cookbook?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Karen, I’m excited for you, too. And yes, I use this cup for cup for the THM baking blend.

  6. karen

    Yay! I made the chocolate chip cookies and they are so yummy. The dough tasted just like the normal no-no kind. I am going to try the pancakes tomorrow morning. Thank you again!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yay! That’s happy news for sure! Any you are so welcome. It’s wonderful to have success in the kitchen and be kind to your body at the same time!

    Hi, can I sub xantham gum for the gluccie?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Lee-Ann,
      I haven’t tried it personally, but I have heard of it being a replacement for it. I know xanthan gum is often used in gluten-free baking, so I would say it should work. 🙂

  8. Kim

    Do you know if there is anything vegetarian I could substitute for the collagen that would have similar results?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      You might be able to use this rice protein powder – http://amzn.to/1PN2X47 . I have some but I have the vanilla flavored rice protein and so I haven’t used it in my blend before. It may take the carb count up a bit so you would have to be careful.

      • Kim

        Thank you so much! I will look into it and let you know if the results are successful.

    Have you looked into chia flour as a sub for flax? If so would it be subbed 1 for one or at a different amount?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      I haven’t looked into subbing chia for the flax, but that would be interesting. I do use chia flour in my pizza crust so I know it can be used as a flour.
