Molasses is a perfect ingredient for gluten-free baking. It retains moisture so helps keep gluten-free baked goods moist.

20 Recipes for Gluten Free Baking in a free eBook

Who knew gluten-free baking could be so easy?

I have always felt sorry for people who were dependant on packaged gluten-free baked goods. To be stuck with poor tasting, strangely-textured boxes of super expensive gluten-free cookies just seemed wrong. May be the boxed stuff is getting better but it’s still costly.

I suspect that’s why, over the years, I have received a lot of messages from molasses lovers looking for gluten-free recipes. Lucky for me I have also received lots of tips from experienced gluten-free bakers. The result is this long-overdue collection of gluten-free recipes for sweets and treats.

A couple of tips:

Early on in my gluten-free baking experiments a veteran gluten-free baker taught me these simple tips:

  • If you’re baking gluten-free quick breads (muffins, biscuits & tea breads) add ½ tsp. of xanthan gum or guar gum for each cup of gluten-free flour used.
  • If you’re adapting recipes that call for all-purpose flour, you’ll find that those recipes containing fruit or vegetable purees (ex. apple sauce or canned pumpkin) adapt well to gluten-free flour since the added moisture from the puree helps with the texture of the finished baked goods.

A note about rolled oats:

Many of the recipes in this eBook call for gluten-free rolled oats.

As of 2015, the Canadian Celiac Association supports Health Canada’s decision to permit the use of gluten-free claims for specially produced oats, provided these oats do not contain more than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten from wheat, rye, barley or their hybridized strains. Visit www.celiac.ca for more information.

Choose certified gluten-free rolled oats if you can’t tolerate any gluten since conventional rolled oats are often cross-contaminated by gluten-containing grains.

For those of you who can tolerate gluten and are simply trying to eat less wheat and enjoy a greater variety of grains, conventional rolled oats may be fine.

Gluten-free flour blend:

Make your own gluten-free flour blend with these three ingredients: 4 cups fine brown rice flour, 1 1/3 cups potato starch (not potato flour), 2/3 cup tapioca flour. Whisk together and store in an airtight container. (From the excellent cookbook, The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook. Read more about it here.)

    This is fantastic and just in time for the Holiday Season! Thank you. One question – Can I freeze Gluten Free Flour once I have mixed it up as suggested?

    I just want to say, I am starting to cook and bake with the many bottles of Crosby’s Molasses that I have, for the 1st time… by myself. I cant wait to taste these beans. After a lifetime of watching my beloved Mother Angeline, here in Maine, make the most delicious Molasses Cookies for the entire family. Church, the kids, neighbors, the Grand kids, the Great grand kids. Mom passed at 96 4yrs ago. She used the molasses in many homemade dishes without any recipes. But her famous Molasses Cookies was a signature to who she was, and it brought everyone together. Most often rather than giving store bought gifts for Christmas, the Grand kids, now all grown up, married, living all across the country, just wanted a container of Gram’s most delicious, bigger than big famous Molasses cookies.. I am on a tight budget. But with in a month or 2. If I buy the flour, then gradually get the other ingredients. I’ll make Mom’s cookies.. Because right now, I wish I had one. I Love Love your molasses. Thank You for having this page.. Blessings

      Pam, what a lovely memory. Homemade gifts always have more meaning than purchased ones. I am sure everyone will be enjoying your Mom’s cookies this Christmas!
