Preparing food gluten free is not easy. For those newly diagnosed, or someone cooking or baking for them, it’s a steep learning curve. I am often asked for advice on how to set up a gluten free kitchen to make food preparation and baking easier. On this episode I speak with Robyn of Robyn’s Gluten Free Baking Courses for advice and practical tips to set up your gluten free kitchen to make baking fun and hassle free. Both Robyn and I have been baking gluten free for years, and we’ve come up with some handy tips to take some of the stress out of so many flours and the different equipment you might need.

Here’s Robyn’s list of flours other information she sent me –

What I keep in large jars (used most often):

·  Brown rice flour

·  White rice flour

·  Sorghum flour

·  Gluten-free Oat flour

·  Tapioca starch

·  Potato starch

·  Corn starch (though I just keep it in the large container from Costco!)

·  Almond flour: I also always have almond flour on hand, but I also buy the large bag from Costco and keep it in the fridge.

Other flours I like to have. I usually keep them in smaller jars or buy them as I need them:

·  Teff flour

·  Millet flour

·  Buckwheat flour

·  Sweet rice flour (I mainly use it during the holidays)

I also keep a small to medium-sized jar of xanthan gum in my baking drawer.


For those who might be overwhelmed with the number of ingredients listed here, my 6 must-have list for basic gluten-free baking are brown rice flour, white rice flour, almond flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, and cornstarch (as well as xanthan gum). These are all of the GF baking ingredients I use to make everything in my Essentials Course

These are the jars I use for my everyday baking (what I consider to be "large jars"). If I buy even larger quantities of flour than what fits in the jars, I will keep them stored away and refill when necessary.

This is what my bread pans are like. They are normally used for a steam table in a restaurant, but they work amazingly well for bread in the oven. They are ¼, which means they are ¼ of a full steam table pan. They come in different depths, but I find the 4” one is best for gluten free bread. Here are similar ones found on -
