The Story Behind My Award Winning* Gluten Free Flour BlendAs a scientist and mum of a child with coeliac disease, food allergies and intolerances I developed my unique whole grain gluten free flour without rice to nourish her with wholesome nutritious food.
It’s important for me to know that she is getting vital nutrients along with protein and fibre whenever she eats, and having found no suitable flour blends on the market I created my own.
It took two years to develop but now I know that whatever I make for her, from pasta to bread, cakes and pastry she is getting some goodness with every mouthful.
On its own it can be used to make:
- Flatbreads (wraps)
- Pizza bases
- Pastry (shortcrust, rough puff, choux and Danish) and more
With the addition of baking powder (1tsp per 100g) it can be used to make:
- American pancakes
- Soda breads
- Waffles and more
One bag of flour is all you need for all your baking.
Gluten Free Recipes
You’ll find recipes using my gluten free flour right here on my site in the recipe section.
What are the ingredients?
Naturally gluten free teff, sorghum, buckwheat, tapioca and potato
What is the nutritional data?
of which sugars 0.9g
Vitamin B3: 1.2mg
How do I store it?
The flour should be stored in an air tight container. It has a shelf life of 12 months but this can be extended by storing the flour in the freezer.
This is the best gluten free flour I have found and about the only one that works well in my breadmaker. One member of my family is seriously allergic to gluten and dairy and eggs. This flour is the perfect answer.
It is much better that competitors and I've made bread in the breadmaker with it.
I always feel left out when I make it for the family. So tonight I made pizza for them the usual way & used your plain flour to make mine. I expected to have to put a jacket potato in the oven as I'd anticipated the base failing (I've tried alternative flours before) but no! I've just had the most delicious little pizzas.
They've all tried a piece and really liked it.Ff
No rice = no arsenic
I've been desperate to find a gluten free flour that doesn't use rice flour (I'm concerned about arsenic levels in rice, and the amount of rice flour used in gluten free food). I was so excited when I found this flour. I've used it so far for cakes, waffles and breads and all have been amazing. An added bonus is that it's wholegrain. I love it. I can highly recommend it.
This flour is excellent. Makes delicious bread. Thank you, Vicki!
The bread holds together and tastes so much better than the stuff I used to make with other gluten-free flours.
I've tried the bread recipe for a bread-maker (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, Vegan).
I love your flour. I have used both self-raising and plain flour and I would continue to buy even if the price increased.
It performed just as well as others I've tried and I didn't need to use any additional raising agents
I've made sausage rolls, mince pies and banana bread with it so far.
Fantastic flour to work with...
Just started using your flour (plain and self raising). I'm not a confident cook but followed your Victoria sponge recipe exactly and it was fantastic.
Fantastic free from flour!
I love, love, love this flour, so versatile. It's lovely to have a gluten free flour that works in all baking and cooking and is healthy and nutritional too. It makes a refreshing change from lifeless, white powder that has the absorption of a sponge! This flour looks good and tastes good too.
Excellent. I'm allergic to a protein in wheat and rice so this was a godsend!
Performed really well.
Coffee and walnut cake, carrot cake, Yorkshire puddings.
Moistest Cake I've Ever Made!
Just made a ginger cake using your flour and it’s the moistest cake I’ve ever made. Really impressed with your flour. My husband is the one that is a celiac and he’s loving it x
I am getting on well with your flour. It tastes good and performs well in baking. I wanted a flour without rice flour in it for all the reasons you state on your website.
I've made Carrot cake, pineapple upside down cake and nut and fruit tea loaf with it.

Wishing you much happiness and success in your new ventures.

Bought flour way back and it produced the best GF bread ever. Also helped to create seriously delicious biscuits and cakes. Looking forward to mixing the flour myself and getting back into the groove of homebaked GF treats
Thank you Vicki for sharing your flour recipe. Love that it has a higher nutritious content than most and without rice. I’ve used many times in lots of different recipes and it’s great. Wishing you lots of success with your Free from Limits business and thank you for sharing your recipes. They have been a great source to access over the last couple of years.

Thank you for your kind words Lauri. The recipes will continue to be a resource for you. I am committed to keeping the website online even if I’m not creating new recipes.
I came across Free From Fairy’s wholegrain flour and have been really impressed with the results. I run a catered chalet business and we have many dietary requirements. I use this flour for baking and would definitely recommend it to any coeliacs looking for a wholesome flour. I have incorporated it into my beetroot brownie recipe, which is both vegan and gluten free, you can find it here on my blog: https://alikats.eu/recipes/2019/9/5/seriously-fudgey-gluten-free-beetroot-brownies/
Please feel free to share the recipe.

I decided to start baking my own bread recently. Being coeliac and vegan it was difficult finding a decent brand without egg and that had more than 6 slices that would instantly break up when getting it out the bag. I came across this site and thought I would give it a go. I ordered 2 packets to start. My first 2 attempts failed. This did not put me off. I invested in a tin with a lid to ensure I would eventually nail it. I then ordered 6 packs. I am so glad I persevered as this is the best bread ever. I do not add sugar to the recipe as I avoid it in my diet and it is so good!! It toasts perfectly. Kudos to you free from fairy. I will never buy shop bought bed again.

Wow! What a lovely comment to read. And kudos to you for not giving up. That really is the key to gluten free baking! Brilliant 🙂

Best GF flour I’ve found , makes the best GF bread. It has flavour, real flavour!

So glad you like it Trish!
I purchased this at Christmas and made a fantastic fruit cake. I have since made scones, muffins, biscuits. I love this flour and am thankful for that more wholesome feel rather than the white gluten free flours in the supermarket. Yes it does cost a bit more but the results have been worth it.
I have just ordered my second lot and am looking forward to experimenting more with my sugar free baking.
As I’m gluten and lactose free it’s really hard to get anything when I’m out. I can now bake healthy versions and take them with me.
I never have bread as not keen on gluten free so have also purchased the bread mix to try. I will let you know how that goes.

Great product! Reliably tasty, works really well as GF substitute in normal recipes.
FANTASTIC flour, for those of us that are Rice/Gluten intolerant it’s a game changer. To get anything rice free is a joy. I use it to make sauces, for example cheese sauce and it doesn’t leave an unwelcome flavour as other gf ingredients do. I must use it more, but I’m a novice/lazy baker. Highly recommend, a great product.

I first tried this flour at a blogging event. I knew that some flour had been provided and I asked the organiser at the end of the day what had happened to it. I was told it was used in all the cakes and biscuits we’d been eating all day. You Are Kidding Me I said! The flour is so good I had had no idea. I truly could not tell the difference (and I’m a picky madam that generally avoids the gluten free option as they’re always dry and gritty).
So now I recommend Free From Fairy flour on every blog post/recipe where I suggest a gluten free flour can be used if needed and I have every confidence that it will work perfectly every single time.

I got this at a food festival a few months back and now m putting in an order… The best free from flour I have come across (and I’ve tried a lot!) it has such a nice taste and cooks well. Very impressed.

The Free From Fairy flour is amazing. Its easy to work with and the results are fantastic. Having a corn/gluten/oat free need, this flour is the only flour that my daughter can use. This flour creates tasty, delicious meals and enabled my daughter to have a Christmas like any other. I made sausage rolls and scotch eggs as well a Christmas pudding, mince and apple pies. These were enjoyed by all, not just my daughter and comments received were that you would never know they were free from foods. With her birthday looming another free from fairy flour cake is on its way.
Without the Free From Fairy flour my daughter would miss out on many yummy meals, puddings and foods.

Best GF bread ever! Have tried processed brands but been unhappy with all the added rubbish. Have also tried making my own from other GF flours but the taste was poor. The loaf I just made from Free From Fairy flour was just lovely, texture, taste everything, and has frozen really well. So simple to make too.. just need a high-sided loaf tin now!
