Cybele’s Basic Gluten-Free Flour Mix

Free of: Gluten and all top allergens.


  • 4 cups superfine brown rice flour (I use Authentic Foods)
  • 1 1/3 cup potato starch
  • 2/3 cup tapioca starch / flour


  1. To measure flour and starches, use a large spoon to scoop flour into the measuring cup then level it off with a straightedge. Combine all ingredients in a gallon-size, zipper-top bag. Seal and shake to combine.
  2. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
