Wholegrain gluten free flours (teff, sorghum, buckwheat), tapioca starch, potato starch
- Flatbreads (wraps)
- Pizza base
With baking powder added:
- American pancakes
- Soda breads
As a scientist and mum of a coeliac child with food allergies and intolerances I developed my unique rice free, wholegrain gluten free flour blend 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.
Now I know that whatever I make for her, from pasta to bread, cakes and pastry she is getting some goodness with every mouthful.
To create a self-raising flour add 1tsp gluten free baking powder (I use Dr Oetker) per 100g plain flour.
If you are following a recipe that calls for xanthan gum you can add that to my flour (or if your current blend contains it), or use an equal amount of psyllium husk. Generally with cakes and biscuits I don’t use it.
My blend does not need extra liquid like most gluten-free flour so if following a gluten-free recipe add liquid slowly until you reach a consistency you expect to have.
If following a ‘normal’ recipe the liquid should be the same as for wheat flour in cakes, biscuits and pancakes.

This is what others have said about my gluten-free flour blend…
Lovely Tasty Quick Bread Alternative!
This is a lovely tasty and quick bread alternative, thank you Vicki. I like to make it alongside a 'picky tea' or with soup or a stew. My only problem with the recipe is the 'leave to cool' part! 🙂 I can never resist the warm end of a fresh baked loaf!
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.
I've been following Vicki for some years via her website
The flour is amazing, the best flour bar none. And I've used a few.
I've made bread, cakes, sponges and a whole lot of other stuff you'd normally think of with flour, thickening, cooking, and general baking. I don't do a huge amount as I'm single and like to watch my weight, so I resist making cakes apart from when I've got the house open to my Church and they love the cakes as I make them all GF and people never seem to realise that we're all eating the same thing, but they taste so good. Highly recommend, to quote an old advert, "Why choose cotton, when you can have silk.?"
Very tasty and well worth the money!
Having met Vicki at a Free From food show, we decided to try her flour as I was also concerned about the amount of rice in my gluten free daughter's diet. It did seem expensive compared to some supermarket flours (although they have rice flour in) but it is well worth the money. The flour is tasty and hasn't crumbled like others have. We recently made cupcakes to take to a party as between them my children are gluten, wheat, dairy, soya, egg, banana, kiwi, tomato and sulphite free. We used a recipe from Vicki's website and made very tasty chocolate cupcakes. Well worth the money and this is what I will be using going forward for the kids.
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.
One of the best flours I've ever used
"It's very rare these days that a basic free from ingredient makes me stop and think as there are so many out there that all serve a purpose. But the wholemeal GF, WF and rice free flour from Free From Fairy is that one product.
This has to be one of the best flours I have used. It is so versatile and easy to use. From tacos to tarts pasta to pies this flour is amazing. I have taken to using it more and more.
Not only that but the story and Vicki’s support is brilliant.
Try it! You will be amazed and if you're stuck on how to use it then check the website for some inspirational recipes."
Makes Delicious Bread!
Made your bread for the first time yesterday. It's delicious. Actually it's too delicious I will be eating far too much of it. It was also so easy to make. Won't be buying bread anymore. Thanks.
Brilliant wholemeal flour full of goodness.
I've made scones and brownies so far with this flour and it's brilliant. So good to know there are so many healthy grains in it making it definitely worth buying
Excellent and easy to use product, supplier has and excellent website with recipes and ideas and is very friendly and helpful if you have any questions. We love eating things made with this flour.
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).
Best flour out there - period!
Whether you are Coeliac, wheat intolerant or just after a healthy, gluten, wheat & rice free flour, this is tops.
The flour is fantastic. My daughter is a coeliac, my husband and I are not but we really enjoy the bread we make from the flour. We don"t have to worry about cross contamination, the bread is delicious!
It is better than competitors for making bread in a breadmaker with a few simple ingredients.
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
We're all able to enjoy bread again...
After becoming gluten intolerant
Delicious and nutritious free from flour.
I've use this flour to make the family pancakes which were delicious and have every intention to use it making pastry too...anyone who's gluten free will probably share my fear of making gluten free pastry but The Free From Fairy has also written an ebook on how to make pastry with her flour...It's on my to-do-list for 2017 to master the art of pastry once and for all!
I've been wanting to try the flour for a long time. I got some a few weeks ago and only just gotten around to making some. I followed the bread baguette recipe on the website, so easy to follow and the best bit.. They rose! I've tried so many times to do bread and don't always get a rise, this was amazing. I made a diy baguette pan as I didn't have one, so they are rustic looking. They taste amazing and not a bit gummy.
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
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.
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.
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.
The best gluten-free flour I've used...
My order arrived this morning and I've just tried my first loaf with Free From Fairy flour and the recipe from her website... for the first time in years I have proper brown bread! I used aquafaba (liquid from a tin of butter beans) instead of the eggs and it worked perfectly. It looks like real bread, tastes like real bread, wonderfully crusty with soft, light inside and a good, tasty but not overpowering flavour. And easy to make. After so many attempts with various blends that never came out right, I'm absolutely delighted.
Edit: After trying a few more recipes I can confidently say this is the best gluten free flour I have used. It's easy to work with and tastes great. It makes the perfect crust for quiche with the shortcrust pastry recipe in Vicki's ebook - maybe even better than wheat! It's not just "good for gluten free", this is seriously good flour in its own right. I now look forward to making FFF flour a regular purchase.
This flour is very good , even though it is slightly darker than ordinary flour.
My cooking skills are not brilliant but cakes were fine.
I've made ordinary sponge cake with it.
You may be able to find a less expensive gluten free alternative flour to bake with, but you are far less likely to achieve the same amazing flavour!
The wholegrain gluten free ‘Fairy’ flour blend created by Vicki Montague is simply brilliant.
Not only does it deliver superb and very consistent baking results, it is flavoursome, nutty, delicious and, being wholegrain, healthy too! I do love buckwheat, in my opinion a very underused ingredient. It is actually an Asian plant of the dock family, producing starchy seeds. When milled into flour, these seeds add great flavour – traditionally used for blinis, (buckwheat pancakes to accompany caviar), Vicki has harnessed the great potential of these seeds in her flour blend. Teff and sorghum also add a depth of flavour.
I thoroughly recommend these two flour blends and would also like to say to any coeliac, whether recently diagnosed or not, that you won’t find anyone anywhere more dedicated that Vicki who is prepared to offer invaluable advice and help others in their quest to overcome dietary restrictions.
Being diagnosed with coeliac disease is not the end of the world, it is the beginning of an entirely new and exciting one.
You may be able to find a less expensive gluten free alternative flour to bake with, but you are far less likely to achieve the same amazing flavour!
Love it--don't use anything else now.
Other flours are mostly rice based which is bad news! I really like the honesty which Vicki shows in all her products and any communication I have with her
I've made so many things with it! Victoria Sponge, Mince pies, little marzipan cakes, and yesterday I made an amazing ginger cake from Glutenfreecuppatea :-)) If I was clever enough I would post a picture! Nothing made with wheat in our house!
Early days for me with this gluten free game and as a mere 77 year old male I have struggled over the last 18 months or so since I found that I had a problem with wheat and found it difficult to eat either in or out. The great majority of GF products and meals are revolting, the GF flours I have tried are gritty and tasteless. The flour is expensive, especially for a pensioner, but food should be enjoyed and as my old mum always told me back in the 1940s/60s " you only get what you pay for with any commodity, so don't go for the cheapest".
To date, I'd say this flour was far better than your competitors.
I've made Bread, Scones, Yorkshire puds and fruit crumbles with it!
Hello Vicki, I am finding your flour really good for baking and any recipe requiring flour as an ingredient. I like it better than the doves ones I used to use.
I was looking for a wholemeal gluten free flour and this flour ticks all the boxes! It is very tasty and doesn’t give that ‘white carbs’ suger rush you get with some gluten free flours.
I’ve also used Dove’s and it performs just as well. I think things made with free-from-fairy flour have more flavour and texture.
I have tried bread, pancakes and my favourite courgette and lime cake.
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.
I really like that your flour is wholegrain. I have never been very happy with using white gluten free flour, and I didn't feel good after eating it so I was delighted to find your flour
It's much better than your competitors.
I have tried loads of recipes with it. I love all your recipes and have tried lots of them. I recommend your flour to anyone interested in gluten free cookery.
The flour is lovely to work with and...dare I say it on this site..! it works beautifully in a bread maker, too!
I use the flour for bread making all the time and it's the texture which is so great, especially the crust which, with other flours, never gets that non-gluten feel to it; gorgeous.
I mainly make my own bread 'recipe' (made up over the years)
The Free from Fairy Flour is exceptional and has transformed my gluten free baking for my daughter with coeliac disease.
Both the self raising and plain flours perform much better than others meaning that I can use them just like wheat based flours. Most importantly they are actually gluten free rather than having low levels of gluten. My daughter remained unwell for years after diagnosis and moving to a gluten free diet and only eliminating processed food and commercially produced substitutes has resulted in her being well again.
I use the flours in all my recipies - cakes, biscuits, breads, pastry, batter, sauces and gravy. My non coeliac extended family also thoroughly enjoyed their gluten free Christmas!
Brilliant flour! Being intolerant to gluten and rice it is impossible to find a flour to bake with until I discovered yours!
It performs brilliantly and I have used it in several recipes.
I’ve made cakes, including a fruit cake I made at Christmas, and it performed brilliantly as a replacement for standard flour. Finally I can bake again x
Love the plain flour, have found it very versatile.
Performs much better than rival brands in my experience.
Have used the flour to adapt my cooking to suit my husbands dietary needs from pies, pasties, scones and cakes to using it as a thickening agent in sauces, stews and casseroles.
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.
Best 'free from' flour I've ever used...
I have been using Vicki's flour for a couple of months now and I have to say that it's the best 'free from' flour I've ever tried. So far, we've made baguettes, sauces, chocolate cake, brownies and pancakes with this flour and it doesn't have the grittiness you find in blends rich in rice flour. Our pancakes taste a lot better than before with this blend and I won't go back to other flour blends!
