Brown rice flour has gone from a very obscure ingredient to a mainstream one with people who want to go gluten-free.

There are several layers to a grain of rice and depending on the level of processing to remove the outer layers leaves you with brown rice and white rice.

Studies have indicated that the husk, the layer that makes brown rice brown, contains several vitamins and minerals and high in fiber.

Brown rice flour can be purchased in pretty much any grocery store today and but it can be very expensive compared to a bag of regular brown rice. I personally didn’t want to spend that much so I decided to see if I could mill it myself.

The conclusion was a resounding YES! It is a simple process. It takes some patience, but it is totally worth it in the end. I usually mill more than I need and then store it in an airtight container on my counter.

I used this brown rice flour to make homemade cookies for my dogs. You can find my recipe here.

Total Time

30-45 minutes

Equipment

brown rice flour - 1
Blender (I used a Magic Bullet with a tall cup and cross blade)
Bowl
Fine mesh strainer*

*The size of the mesh will determine how fine your end product will be. If it has really small holes then your end product will be very fine. If it has larger holes then your flour will be more coarse.

I love my Magic Bullet! Get your own here!

Ingredients

1 Cup Whole brown rice grains*

*1 C rice = 1.14 C brown rice flour, according to TraditionalOven.com.

Instructions

Place about 1/4 cup of brown rice into the cup and attach the blade.

Pulse the rice in the blender

Rice grains will stir up and down in the cup as they are being milled.

Once you see that there is powder in the cup, stop and dump all of the contents into the strainer over the bowl. There will still be lots of large grains of rice but you will see that the grains have been ground down.

Run your fingers through the grains to help push the finely milled rice into the bowl.

Return the unmilled rice back to the cup. Add some fresh grains too.

Pulse the blender again. Repeat the whole process until you have milled enough for your recipe.*

*If the Magic Bullet becomes too hot, you should give it about a ten minute break so it doesn’t overheat.
