You could, but I'm not sure anyone would eat them
I don't use much in the way of grains, but for GF baking for special occasions I buy premixed flours. No one flour really gives you the right consistency, and if I actually used grains I'd learn how to mix them myself. Bob's Red Mill makes an all purpose flour mix that is great and really tastes just like wheat. You just sub cup for cup. I've had great luck with it. I also like the Gluten Free Pantry mixes.
