Recipe Notes

* A variety of white rice flour called "sweet" rice flour can be used only as a thickener. Found in Asian grocery stores.

** Zanthan gum (or Xanthan Gum) is an emulsifier, lubricant, suspending agent and thickener.  Commonly used in gluten free food to improve the texture and consistancy and is often found in sauces and salad dressings.

    These look yummy! My son is also on the GFCF diet and I am on the hunt for great-tasting recipes for him. Just a question though– don’t the chocolate chips have casein since they are made with milk?
