Happiness is also being able to quickly reach for an all-purpose gluten free flour. A blend you don’t have to think about when wanting to bake breads, cakes, cookies or pancakes.

Gluten free all-purpose flour

The general ratio in Rita’s flour blend is 2 cups rice flour to 1 cup cassava flour. Or 3 cups rice flour to 1 cup buckwheat. Make a big batch and store in an airtight container.

Couldn’t even wait for the cup of tea to start munching on the cookies. So yummy!
