Whole-Grain Gluten-Free Flour Blends
How we tested
We wanted to find a store-bought whole-grain flour blend that we could recommend as a suitable alternative to the ATK Whole-Grain Gluten-Free Flour Blend, but unfortunately we didn’t find any. In fact, there are very few whole-grain blends on the market at all, never mind a brand that is widely available in supermarkets. We tracked down five whole-grain blends (mostly online) and gave them each a turn in Whole-Grain Chocolate Chip Cookies and Whole-Grain Blueberry Muffins.
We could not find a store-bought whole-grain flour blend that delivered the same earthy, “wheaty” flavor as our blend. We don’t recommend using any store-bought blends in recipes that call for our whole-grain blend.
Although all of the blends produced edible cookies and muffins (some more edible than others), none of them came close to delivering the deep, hearty, “wheaty” flavor of the ATK blend. The chart includes the five blends we tested, along with our tasting notes; note that they are listed alphabetically, not in order of preference.
