Special Instructions for baking Montana Gluten Free
Montana Gluten Free mixes offer the baker as many options as the baker can imagine. We recommend that you change only one ingredient at a time, and then if it isn’t right you know what ingredient caused the problem.
Don’t hesitate to add raisins, craisins, nuts, cinnamon, toffee, or fruit.
Moisture is extremely important and your elevation determines the amount of water to add. Our recipes are written for sea-level since that is where most people live however if you live in mile high Denver Colorado or Bozeman Montana, like we do, you will be adding an ounce or 28.5g of water. If your bread doesn’t rise like you would expect your mix may be to dry or your yeast didn’t work properly. If your bread falls or has a heavy area above the bottom crust you have added too much water. We usually weigh our water instead of measuring because a small reading error on a large measuring cup could cause your bread to fail.
Please email us email@example.com with questions, concerns, success, failures, and ideas; let us know how we can serve you better. We would love to post your recipe on our recipe page.
GF Pumpkin Pastry Mix egg free/vegan: Substitute ¾ cup Apple sauce and 1 tsp Baking Powder for eggs)
Bread Mixes Egg Free:
- 50 to 70 grams of Silken tofu Puree (soft or liquid); or
- 70g golden flax meal, flax meal needs 10 to 20 grams of water or oil to compensate for moisture lost;
- ¾ cup of apple sauce, reduce water by approximately 40 g and increase oil by 20 g.
Bread Mixes Yeast free: use 1 ½ ts lemon juice plus 1 ½ ts baking powder (or baking soda) instead of yeast. We have had some success substituting 7up for water.
Rye or Pumpernickel: Add 1 Tbs caraway seed to Timtana Dark Bread Mix. Anise and fennel are often used also.

May we recommend, when baking with Timtana™ flour that you do not store bread in an air tight bag or wrap. Timtana™ bread is very moist and will stay fresh much longer if you place the loaf cut face down on a plate or in a paper bag.

Cover and allow the dough to sit at room temperature for 90—120 minutes, until risen. If you use immediately, take about 700 grams and shape into a smooth ball on parchment. Allow the dough to rest for 30-40 minutes while the oven preheats to 400 degrees. Slash the top just before baking. Bake (with steam) for 45-50 minutes.
Refrigerate the remaining dough. Let the cold dough sit for 90 minutes after shaping.

Gluten-free Banana Bread with Timtana flour
(Makes one 8 1/2” x 4 1/2” loaf)
Timtana flour is a gluten-free flour made out of timothy grass by Montana processors. It is very high in protein, and helps
create nice moist baked goods. It is particularly good in yeast-raised baked goods, but really shines here, adding structure
and volume as well as a nice nutty undertone which complements the banana flavour. This is a plain banana bread, showcasing
the natural flavour of the fruit, but if you want, you can fold in 1 cup or so of nuts, raisins or even chocolate chips!
If you don’t have Timtana flour, you can substitute another high-protein flour such as teff, garfava or defatted soy.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk well to mix.
• 3/4 cup Timtana flour (90 grams)
• 1 cup cornstarch (128 grams)
• 1/4 cup almond flour (30 grams)
• 1 teaspoon xantham gum
• 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Mash bananas well and add other liquid ingredients in a large bowl
• 3 large ripe bananas, mashed well
• 1/4 cup buttermilk
• 2 large eggs, beaten
• 6 Tablespoons grape seed oil (or other neutral vegetable oil)
• 3/4 cup evaporated can juice or granulated sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients, and mix very well. Pour into a well greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. After 15 minutes, slash lightly down the centre to prevent cracking on
the sides. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove and let cool to room temperature before slicing.
Well loved by Lucille's family, both the celiacs and the non-celliacs. The Buns are really versatile, great for hamburgers, toast nicely, easy to take along to restaurants (ie Carabas to use in their dipping oil), or take along for a fast food burger. No gritty taste, mild flavor.
