This is the best flour substitution. I use it in most of my family recipes. It's important to add the extra xanthan gum indicated at the bottom.

2 1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup potato starch flour
2/3 cup tapioca starch flour
3/4 cup sweet rice flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons xanthan or guar gum

You always need to add guar gum or xanthan gum to gluten-free flour, it is an essential ingredient that binds our baked goods. The mix has some xanthan gum in it so you can make pancakes, waffles, some cookies without adding extra but if you are going to bake a cake or bread, use the following:

Pizza Crust - add 1 teaspoon per cup of flour mix
Cakes/Muffins/Quick Bread - add 1/2 teaspoon per cup of flour mix
Cookies - add 1/4 teaspoon per cup of flour mix
