Just curious if you could make these with Gluten Free flour? If so any, recommendations so they don’t spread too much? I really have trouble with adapting regular flour and GF flour when baking cookies especially. Thank you.
Hello Joann! Thanks for your note here. I haven’t made these with gluten-free flour and as you noted below GF flour can certainly change the texture. Assuming you have tried a GF blended flour that has multiple sources of GF grains? These are usually much better for baking than a source of only one single grain such as only rice flour etc. We have a good GF muffin recipe on our site here https://www.healthstandnutrition.com/gluten-free-blueberry-muffins-with-lemon-zest/ and for my favorite GF cookie recipe I would google a top-ranked Macaroon recipe which is fast to make and yummy for all! The one from the Kitchn is a good one 🙂
