Flax Farm Linseed Porridge for delicious Gluten-free baking – and it’s healthier too
Linseed Porridge is one of Flax Farm’s best-kept secrets. I bet even people who buy it for their breakfast don’t know how good it is. It’s probably my fault because I don’t eat porridge but I find everyone else here loves it, so any leftovers from making a batch are taken home by one of the baking team and enjoyed.
However, I am guilty of keeping the best gluten-free flour secret! I have been wheat-free/gluten-free ever since Flax Farm started nearly twenty years ago. I have never bought ordinary gluten-free flour because they are usually just refined carb starchy flour with not nutritional merit. Flax Farm Linseed Porridge is different, full of goodness and delicious. It has been my go to “gluten-free flour” for most recipes for almost two decades. I use for almost all my baking and even if using standard recipes I find I seldom, if ever, need to make adjustments. The other ladies here also love it for their baking – some aren’t even gluten-free!

I used our Flax Farm Porridge (gluten-free naturally) to make a pizza base for Vegan pizza, (no mozzarella) and everyone in the office wanted a second slice and that includes Nigel, who is one of those totally anti-anything-vegan-it’s-not-food-unless-it’s-meat-or-real-cheese-people!!!
