I am newly gluten free and I have been grinding my own wheat flour for years.

Has anyone tried grinding the flours used for gluten free baking?

I'm thinking that rice and chickpeas should be doable.

I have been thinking about quinoa. Would it need to be rinsed and dried first?

I grind my own flours all the time. I use a flour mill for chickpea flour and grind rice, quinoa, millet, etc. in a coffee grinder. I use quinoa straight from the package, but I found it to be a bit bitter, so maybe rinsing and drying is a good idea.

Thanks, Mihl!

My coffee grinder is really small. Why do you use the coffee grinder for everything except chickpeas? Do they clog the mill?

My coffee grinder is also small. I use it because I usually only need small batches of those flours. Or because stuff like amaranth is to small for my flour mill. I have a grinder similar to this one. There's no mill you can clog.

I used an old little grinder I found at a farmer`s place for a while to make my own rice flour with brown rice. The machine was very heavy and incredibly loud but it made wonderful rice flour!
