A Note About Gluten Free Flour
Different brands of gluten free flour will produce varied results, largely due to the differences in ingredients. I prefer Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten free baking flour, which usually works very well as a 1-to-1 substitution for regular all purpose flour. This flour contains xantham gum, which works as a binding agent to help hold on to moisture and keep baked goods from falling apart. If your flour does not contain xantham gum, I recommend adding in ¼ teaspoon to this recipe.
I prefer to use whole food ingredients when I can, so I make these using coconut oil. If you can't have coconut, you can also substitute it with melted vegan butter or a neutral tasting oil like canola.
