7 1/2 cups brown rice flour
2 1/2 cups potato starch
1 1/4 cups tapioca flour
1 cup ground flax seed
1 cup chickpea flour or soy flour
4 and 1/2 tablespoons xanthan or guar gum (see note below)
Makes about 13 cups
Mix well and store in a moisture-proof container in in the freezer. Use cup-for-cup instead of regular flour.
Notes: Because non-gluten flours lack the structure that gluten provides, xanthan gum or guar gum (available in health food stores) is often added to gluten-free baked goods. This mixture contains enough xanthan or guar gum for cakes, cookies, pancakes and quick breads. For yeast breads, you may have to add up to 1 teaspoons more gum per cup of gluten-free flour.

|We all procrastinate; we put off things because we do not want to do them or because we have too many other things going on in our lives. Some of us love the rush of a last minute deadline, getting something done in a hurry, but it is probably not a very healthy habit to get into.|
|Raw Fig Pudding|
|Category: Raw Foods|
Description: This is so delicious. The figs gives us some iron, the flax gives us some omegas, and the bananas provide us with some potassium.
