The following are the 9 best Paleo flour recipes. Paleo flour is a blend of 4 gluten-free flours mixed together which makes one all-purpose Paleo flour. I assume you have seen a lot of Paleo recipes like I have that call for a little almond flour, a little coconut flour, a little tapioca flour, and a little arrowroot flour. Well, I certainly have.
That's because most recipes don't taste good with just one kind of gluten-free flour. Or the texture is just unpalatable. After experimenting, many people have found that a combination of these 4 flours combines the strengths and minimizes the weaknesses of the various flours.
Well, Bob's Red Mill finally figured that out too. They finally make one flour with the best combination of flours which takes the guesswork out of a lot of recipes. Introducing Paleo Flour for baking.
It contains almond flour, arrowroot starch, coconut flour, and tapioca flour. It is a 1:1 replacement for all-purpose flour, whether it be for cakes, cookies, pancakes, etc.
I have read reviews about Bob's Red Mill Paleo flour and everyone loves it. Sometimes they just use it in a regular recipe and sub it out instead of wheat flour. They say it cooks to a nice golden brown when they make pancakes. They like it for a lot of different baked goods.
There is one thing they DID NOT LIKE about it. That's the price. When you think about it, it is VERY expensive. Right now it is $15 a pound. That's more than steak; that's ridiculous. I understand that the ingredients are expensive, and I used to bake with it myself until I started making my own.
Any one of those costs less than $15 a pound. Use the recipe and then mix the flours together and store it in an airtight container like you would any single flour. Even better, would be to store it in the freezer so it will last longer and so the almonds won't go rancid. Then when you need it, it's all ready to use.Print

Below here are the best recipes that use Paleo flour there are. There aren't very many around. The first two I developed myself and if I say so myself, they are wonderful. I really like Paleo flour. It really does take the guesswork out of a lot of recipes. I think either using Paleo flour that you buy or make on your own is a really good way to go.
Give some of these recipes a try and let me know how you like them. I think you will. I and others would also be interested to know which recipes are your favorites.
What is in Paleo baking flour?
Paleo baking flour is made with just four ingredients. They are almond flour *, arrowroot starch *, tapioca flour *, and coconut flour *.
What kind of flour Can you use on the Paleo diet?
There are many but the main ones that come to mind right now are Almond flour *, Cassava flour *, Hazelnut Flour *, Arrowroot Starch *, Tigernut Flour *, Plantain Flour, and Coconut Flour *. Paleo flour should be added to the list, it's the latest and greatest and not everyone has heard about it yet. It's the perfect combination of almond flour *, arrowroot starch *, tapioca flour *, and coconut flour *.
Is almond flour a good substitute for all-purpose flour?
Almond flour * is Paleo but it can't be substituted for all-purpose flour straight across and neither can any other flour. Gluten-free flour * requires more moisture, some more than others. They also require binders such as xanthan gum. It's best to stick with a tried and true recipe. In fact, I can't think of one Paleo recipe right now that calls for just one flour, the right combination are essential. Get a recipe!
Paleo Flour Recipes
1. The Best Ever Paleo Tortillas - My Natural Family
Paleo Flour - Tapioca Starch - Butter - Real Salt * - Baking Powder
These are really good. I like to have these on hand so I make a bunch of them ahead of time. I use them for all sorts of things like burritos, tacos, wraps, enchiladas, fajitas. Also for breakfast burritos, lunches or between-meal snacks. Sometimes I use them in place of pita bread, naan or even bread.
They are a lot easier to make than bread and they store a lot longer. You could even freeze a bunch of these and use one or two at your convenience. Just put a piece of waxed paper, tin foil or parchment paper between each tortilla so you can get them apart when they are frozen. These are more delicate than regular tortillas because they don't have any gluten. Follow the very specific instructions I have written out on how to roll them out without breaking or tearing.
2. Paleo Sweet Potato Muffins - My Natural Family
Paleo Baking Flour - Sweet Potato - Honey - Coconut Oil - Almond Flour * - Baking Soda - Baking Powder - Real Salt * - Cinnamon - Allspice
These are easy to make especially if you have sweet potatoes leftover from Thanksgiving or another meal. I've also been known to make extra sweet potatoes just so I can have leftovers to make these muffins later. You can also make them with canned sweet potatoes just make sure you buy the right kind.
Read the ingredients and make sure they aren't packed in syrup. Make sure you buy the ones packed in water. Some might have added Splenda * when they do I just rinse it off. I pour the whole can of sweet potatoes into a strainer when it's in the sink. I turn the water on and just rinse them off. It helps get rid of the extra sweetness I don't want.

Thank you for this list! I have several bags of Bob's Red Mill Paleo baking flour that my dad picked up on sale and I haven't been able to find recipes that specify that blend until this post!
Thanks for this easy recipe. It's going to save me so much money!
Have you tried omitting tapioca starch? Compared to the other three, this one has extremely high carbohydrate content. We are not strictly Paleo, just dealing with health issues so need to eat no grain and low carb. Thanks.
Sorry, but I haven't.
Kelly @ A Girl Worth Saving
I agree. I love Bob Red Mills Paleo flour blend but the price! When I first started the Paleo diet, I didn't even bake, which is kinda crazy now that I do all of my own baking. I know there is a really big learning curve with using paleo flours and I wasted a ton of money when I was learning. I literally cry when I think of all the almond flour goods that I threw in the trash when I was trying to figure out how to make paleo bread. I pinned this post because you have some great recipes and tips in this post. I also wrote a post sharing how to troubleshoot the big 3 paleo flours and you can read it here https://agirlworthsaving.net/2014/01/guide-to-paleo-flours.html
Thanks for the comment and the link to the great resource. I totally agree about the price. Although, it's good to know it will actually work and good to start with for newbies.
