Today, we’re going to be taking a look at Pamela’s gluten free flour and just a small selection of the recipes you can make using their flour. If you’ve been following the gluten-free diet for a while, you’ll know that gluten-free flour is a staple for any celiac kitchen. Nowadays, it’s much easier to find gluten-free flour. However, Pamela’s is always one of my top choices, as it’s just so versatile, easy to use, and can be used as a direct substitute for wheat flour in most recipes. But what gluten-free goodies can you make with this product? Let’s take a look.
What Is Pamela’s?
Pamela’s products have been around since the late ’80s. Their products are made with high-quality ingredients and not just that – everything is gluten-free (yes, EVERYTHING). They’re a certified gluten-free brand, which means all of their products are tested for gluten and meet strict guidelines set by the FDA.
While their all-purpose flour is one of their most popular products, they also offer pancake mixes, baking mixes, snack bars, graham crackers, and cookies – all gluten-free, of course. You can check out their huge selection of gluten-free goodness here.
Ingredients In Pamela’s Gluten Free Flour
You may be wondering what their all-purpose flour is made from, as we know it doesn’t contain wheat! The Pamela’s All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend contains the following ingredients:
- brown rice flour
- tapioca starch
- white rice flour
- potato starch
- sorghum flour
- arrowroot starch
- guar gum
- sweet rice flour

It’s worth noting that the facility is not just gluten-free, but also peanut-free too. However, the facility does handle tree nuts, coconuts, eggs, soy, and milk.

Gluten Free Recipes Using Pamela’s Gluten Free Flour
Pamela’s has an amazing section of recipes over on their website, from bread to cookies, to snack bars; you can find the full selection here. However, I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes using this flour: chocolate chip pecan skillet cookies. Cookies are one of the foods I missed most when I first received my diagnosis – but they couldn’t be easier to make gluten-free!

The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are:
- 1 cup (plus 2 tablespoons) of Pamela’s All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup of butter (room temp)
- 1/4 cup of cane sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of crushed pecans
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Now all you need to do is:
Step 1: Prepare
Gather all of the ingredients you need and preheat your oven to 350F.
Step 2: Make the Batter
Grab a bowl and add the butter, vanilla extract, cane sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well using an electric mixer. Once smooth, add the egg and combine. Using a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir. Once mixed, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Once combined well, you can fold in the pecans and chocolate chips.
Step 3: Bake
With the dough, make 6 even balls and press them into mini skillets, ramekins, one large skillet, or a baking sheet. Place in the center of your preheated oven and bake for around 12-14 minutes. They should still be slightly undercooked in the center.
Step 4: Enjoy
Leave to cool slightly – as it will be piping hot! Add ice cream or whipped cream of your choice and enjoy!
TIP: It’s worth mentioning that if you do not have skillets at home, you can just bake the cookies on a baking sheet as you would usually. However, for best results, a skillet is recommended.

Does Pamela’s Gluten-Free Flour Have Xanthan Gum?
When buying gluten free flour, there's a high possibility that it will contain xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is great at holding baked goods together. However, some people are sensitive to it. If this is you, we have some good news! Pamela's gluten free flour does not contain xanthan gum. Instead, it uses guar gum, which does exactly the same job as xanthan gum.

If you're vegan and looking for a vegan bread mix, unfortunately, Pamela's Bread Mix is not the choice for you. Although most of the ingredients do not contain animal products, their bread mix does contain honey. Most vegans choose to exclude honey from their diet.
