HOMEMADE BROWN RICE FLOUR- Vegan & Gluten-Free

vegan month

I’ve been on a serious “homemade” kick lately. Probably because I’m extremely interested in saving money day to day so I can afford the luxury of another vacation. A simple way I’ve learned to save money is by making my own flours. Store bought gluten-free flours are expensive, more expensive than they need to be! To make your own flour all you need is 30 seconds, a whole grain and a high powered blender. Even though in this post I’m making brown rice flour, I use the exact same process to make my own oat flour and sorghum flour.

Step 1: Add whole grain of choice to a high power blender. I use my Vitamix and added 1 cup of brown rice.

Step 2: Blend grain on high for 20-30 seconds. The blending time will depend on your blender, but I find 20-30 seconds in a Vitamix creates a wonderfully fine brown rice flour. 1 cup of brown rice will create just under 1.5 cups of flour.

Step 3: Get baking! Whatever you don’t use you can keep it in the fridge. If you don’t think you’ll use the flour in the next few weeks though, put it in the freezer for safe keeping.

  1. I use a wheat grinder to grind my brown and white rice to make flour. i like it because it grinds it very fine.i have been gluten ffree for three years.

  2. This is so awesome! I don’t know why I haven’t thought of this. I’ve made millet and quinoa flour from the whole grain and always have brown rice on hand. Incidentally, I was just thinking about buying some brown rice flour- now I don’t have to! Thanks for sharing 🙂
