Grain-Free Substitutes

Savory sauces and gravies

Potato Starch/Flour works great.  Seems to be a 1:1 conversion. Perhaps slightly smaller amount than regular flour.

Sweet Sauces, such as puddings and custards

Substitute 2 TBS tapioca flour for every TBS of cornstarch in a pudding recipe.

Up to one cup honey can be subbed for granulated sugar.  For recipes calling for over 1 cup of granulated sugar, reduce the amount of honey to 2/3 or 3/4 cup.

Substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar. 1:1 ratio

Need Breadcrumbs?

Try finely crushed nuts.  I find pecans to be particularly good. Parmesan cheese makes a good sub as well.  I am also told that pork rinds and parmesan make a good coating.

Missing cereal?

Yogurt mixed with honey and chopped nuts makes a good replacement for cold cereal.  For hot cereal, try this: Missing Oatmeal? – Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Creamy Hot Cereal 

Need a Topping for Fruit Crumbles?

1 cup almond flour

2 tablespoons coconut flour

2 tablespoons honey

¾ tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp allspice

1/8 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

4 tablespoons butter or ghee, melted

1 cup chopped pecans


Mix all other ingredients until crumbly, sprinkle over fruit mixture and bake at 350° for 40 to 50 minutes, until golden.
