Homemade Baking Powder

So today I decided to give the homemade grain free, aluminum free baking powder a try. It was pretty easy. These are the ingredients. I went to Whole Foods to buy them and it is a ratio of 2 parts Tartar, 1 part arrowroot and one part baking soda.

I am in a cooking mood and may make some waffles in the morning for my little family, (shhh don’t tell) and when I do I will hopefully have found a truly grain free substitute that will work trouble free.

In the future I will post some recipes that I enjoy making so keep an eye out for them. I may even upload a video or two, forgive any rough spots, I am not a pro cook!

    Heres more of a question yhat a comment.
    While trying to get away from grains hidden in everything I’m having a difficult time finding a cheese sauce or any sauce with dairy products thickener that’s grain free. So far I’ve read tapioca, arrowroot, sweetpotato, and water chestnut starches are excellent substitutes as thickeners. Also almond flour, coconut flour, and flax seed flour as thickeners. I can’t say one is better than the other since I’ve not tried any of them yet but was leaning arrowroot. Except… arrowroot does not work for any dairy sauce, AKA cheese sauce. Purportedly only makes the sauce slimy, not thick. So I may try egg yokes to thicken.
    Does anyone have any experience with this and can offer which may be best all around? Looking forward to learning about it. Thanks!
    This is becoming one helluva learning curve. But hopefully one of great benefits down the road.
