Bob's Redmill GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Wendy and I have just completed one week without gluten or direct usage of refined sugar in our diet. Wendy treated us to a batch of chocolate chip cookies to celebrate this accomplishment. We used a off-the-shelf mix from Bob's Red Mill. This is a gluten-free product sweetened with beet juice. I'm digging the cookies. We also tried Bob's gf biscuit mix to make waffles which turned out to be the best waffles we had ever made. Now we are deciding on product to buy bulk gluten free all purpose baking flour. Does anyone have a favorite?

I have yet to find one that is remotely cheap enough to rival wheat-based flours...so I found a few recipes for making my own. The best ones so far come from 'Ideas in Food,' which is *not* my blog, but is full of fascinating (if high-end) foods.

Am a fan of Pamelas pancake and waffle mix and buy it in the 4lb bags (see Amazon for buying multi bags). Its a great base for many things including a fabulous corn bread, waffles, pancakes, and the great Choc Chip cookies I made last night. use Sorghum flour as my base for gravies, and when combined with ground Glutino pretzels is a great "oven baked" coating. do have a recipe for make a drop biscuit from scratch taht rivals anything I ever made with wheat, but it sure requires a lot of ingredients. Ditto for the only decent gluten free bread. Lots of info out there, just gotta keep searching.

Check out "savory palate.com for good "recipes" for gluten free flour. Another GF site I like is glutenfreegoddess.com. Both sites offer lots of great recipes.

I second Pamela's pancake mix from Amazon. I've eaten strict GF for 10 years now.

Eventually, you may realize that a grain based diet is harmful and that even GF products in excess will make you feel bad. at least that's what I've discovered.
Also, eating vegan strictly for 25 years may have spurred on the celiac disease! moderation

Hi Wendy and Mikey,

We're totally gluten-free in our house and a pretty recent discovery for us is sorghum flour. I just started making great, mild, not-so-sweet cupcakes with sorghum, tapioca and potato starch flours, cornstarch, and a little of our own maple sugar.
Maybe you could grow sorghum -- it seems your climate could be right for it.
