    1. Thank you, Kelly! This is definitely our go-to… we used to do home-made yeast cinnamon rolls, but they aren’t so great gluten free. I should probably spend some more time and see if I can figure that one out!

  2. Do you use a GF flour that contains xantham gum or is it not needed for this recipe?

    1. Hi Tara!

      I normally use Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour, which does not have xantham gum in it, I believe. But play around with it and let me know what works best for you!

      Merry Christmas!

  3. I don’t have Gluten Free AP Flour, could I use almond and/or coconut as a substitute? And if so in what amounts?

  4. Yummmmm. These look delicious!! My gluten – free crew would LOVE these. They are apple fanatics! Definitely repinning & coming back for more Gf fridays.

  5. Is the stevia 1/2 CUP? Not specified in recipe. Or can I cut it back some? Thanks bunches!

    1. Hi Pamela! Yes, it should be 1/2 cup. Thanks for letting me know about that. And I’m sure you could decrease it if you want. Just play around with it and do what suits your taste!
