Suggested Use

Serve this family favorite with butter, honey or jam. The dough is easier to work with mixed in a food processor rather than by hand.

1 cup Bob's Red Mill GF All Purpose Baking Flour

1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Cornstarch

1 Tbsp. Sugar

2 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Baking Soda

1 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Xanthan Gum

1 tsp. Bob's Red Mil Gaur Gum

1/2 tsp. Bob's Red Mill Sea Salt

1/4 cup Shortening*

1/4 cup Milk

1 large Egg White

Cooking Spray

*Non-hydrogenated shortening, by Spectrum and smart Balance, are available at health food stores.

Preheat oven to 350º. In food processor, pulse dry ingredients (flour through salt) to mix thoroughly. Add shortening and pulse a few times again. Add milk and egg white and blend into soft dough. To mix by hand, combine dry ingredients (flour through salt) in large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture is consistency of small peas. Whisk together milk and egg thoroughly combine. Stir into flour mixture to form a soft dough. Shape dough into ball, scraping side to bowl with spatula. Place dough on surface lightly dusted with GF All Purpose Baking Flour. Gently pat to 3/4-inch thick circle with hands or spatula. Cut into 2-inch circles. Shape remaining dough to 3/4-inch thick and cut again. If dough is sticky, lightly dust with more flour. Arrange evenly on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or coated with cooking spray and lightly dusted. Bake 12-15 minutes or until nicely browned. Best when served warm or gently reheated. Serves 10.

I like it

Posted by Reviewer2569584 on Feb 03, 2009

A little bit in a smoothie makes it thick and creamy, and usually prevents separation if I put the smoothie in the refrigerator for a while. I don't taste it at all in the smoothie with other flavors, but I do taste it sometimes in other recipes. I also use it in a salad dressing made with pine nuts, and it's great - once again, thick and creamy with no separation. It should be added last, and while the blender is running to prevent clumping. It thickens immediately but there is a little additional thickening upon sitting. A little bit goes a long way, and this 8 oz package lasts a long time.

Great stuff!

Posted by Reviewer2913010 on Sep 20, 2009

I have used this in place of the xanthan gum, used it to thicken dressings and sauces with excellent results. For salad dresssings and sauces, please allow time for it to thicken as it takes time for it to absorb.

Guar Gum

Posted by Reviewer2762437 on Feb 12, 2010

I decided to switch from Xanthan to Guar Gum. I've been substituting it in all my recipes and they all still come out great.

Excellent product and service

Posted by Reviewer2413004 on Jun 04, 2009

I rely on BRM Guar Gum as a thickener for low-carb cooking and as a texturizer for no-flour baking. It gives fine, reliable results. iHerb's price (including shipping cost) was excellent, and I received my order quickly.
