    Baking powder isn’t in your ingredient list, but is in the instructions.

      Hi there!

      Thanks again for commenting. We’ve just heard back from the recipe creator: 1 tsp is the amount you’re looking for.

    what egg replacer is it? any particular brand? or can I make my own flaxeed egg?

    • TheNETeam on May 7, 2018 at 9:36 am

      Hi, Nadia!

      Thank you for the comment. No particular brand is needed – you can absolutely make your own using flax seed!

    Can I replace the glutenfree flour by a normal one and shall then other ingredients be removed completely or does the recipe remain the same?
    Thanks, Caroline

      Hi, Caroline!

      You can absolutely replace gluten-free flour with a standard, all purpose flour. Shouldn’t require any additional changes!

    Hi! I’m willing to make these but I’m going to use regular all purpose flour; question is.. is the guar gum still necessary?

    • TheNETeam on October 31, 2018 at 11:20 am

      Hi, Silvia.

      We can’t say for certain, but it may not be necessary given the more binding nature of all purpose flour. The only way to find out is to give it a try!

      Good luck and let us know how it goes,

    It did not work… Very greasy and not puffy enough!

      SAME! This didn’t work for me at all and I’m a skilled baker (used to own a bakery!) Mine turned into flat toast LOL. Flavour still good though!
