      If you’re following a recipe that calls for graham flour and you don’t have any on hand or can’t find it at the store, here are some graham flour substitutes you can use instead.

      What is Graham Flour

      Graham flour is a type of wheat flour, basically- whole wheat flour. The major difference between graham flour and regular whole wheat flour is that the components of the wheat grain, the bran, germ, and endosperm are separated and ground separately. Wheat berries have 3 parts, the germ, the endosperm and the bran. In graham flour, the endosperm is finely ground until it resembles traditional flour. The germ and bran parts are coarsely ground. Then the three are recombined, thus creating graham flour.

      Substitute For Graham Flour

      If you don’t have graham flour you can substitute:

      • Equal amounts of Unbleached, unrefined, whole wheat flour
      • OR – Per cup needed, substitute 1/2 cup unsifted whole wheat flour + 1/2 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
      • OR – Use 1 cup minus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour + 3 tablespoons wheat germ.
      • OR- 2/3 cup White flour + 1/3 cup Wheat bran + 1.5 teaspoon Wheat germ

      You might be tempted to use GRAM flour. Be aware this is an entirely different type of flour made from chickpeas. Gram and Graham flour are entirely different and absolutely NOT interchangeable in any way.
