Low-Allergy Gluten-Free Flour Substitute Recipe

Photograph: Vicky Wasik

Alex named this Aki's Blend because she challenged him to come up with a flour blend without xanthan gum, guar gum, dairy, or soy. It's our low-allergen blend for people with multiple food sensitivities. It doesn't exclude all allergens, but it is as close as we could get to a gluten-free flour blend that just about anyone can use. The texture of baked goods made with it tends to be firmer and slightly chewier than what you get from What IiF Flour and Batch 3.
