Review: Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend

Pamela’s Products have been a staple in our house and on grocery store shelves for many years.  I am thrilled to see more products have recently been added to their line-up, including this new Artisan Flour Blend

Ingredients:
Brown Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, White Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Sorghum Flour, Arrowroot Starch, Sweet Rice Flour, Guar Gum.

Before this flour mix was introduced, I frequently baked with Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix.  There are quite a few differences between the mixes, including the omission of dairy, salt and leavening agents in this new flour blend.  More about the new flour blend:

Delicious scratch baking will be back in your life! This flour blend has no dairy, no nuts, no salt, no leavening, no corn and no soy. It will work perfectly in most of your traditional recipes or with subtle tweaking such as adding more liquid. Now you can bake like you used to!

For recipes to make with this mix, see all of our Artisan Flour Blend Recipes.

Helpful Hints:

  • The Artisan Flour Blend will work in most recipes as a replacement for wheat flour.
  • Due to the subtle flavor of our Artisan Flour, seasoning and herbs will elevate the taste when making gravy, or coating meats and poultry.
  • Batters may thicken as they sit and may require water to thin.
  • For yeast breads, we suggest using 1 tsp dry yeast per cup of Artisan Flour. Additional water will most likely be needed. Add water until dough is a sticky batter similar to banana bread. For a taller loaf, use a parchment collar at least 3 to 5 inches above the edge around the interior of the bread pan.

I used the Artisan Flour for baking and as a thickening agent in gravy and had tremendous results with both!  The flour blend really does look like traditional all purpose flour, but without the gluten. 

Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend is available now on Amazon.com for $4.60/24 ounces or $11.67 for 4 pounds and should be available soon on your local grocery store shelves. 

Do you have a go-to packaged gluten-free flour mix?  Have you tried Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend?

    I used to use Tom Sawyer GF flour but switched about a year ago to using King Arthur’s GF flour. I’d like to try Jules’ GF flour sometime — as well as this new Pamela’s Artisan blend. We use the Pamela’s pancake mix all the time — we like it better than any “regular” pancake mix we used before going gluten free!
