    Thank you for these gluten free recipes.
    I am need to baking and really appreciate the depth of information
    provided. I have two questions regarding flax seed in stead of gums.

    1. What is best way to turn flax seed into a flax seed flour?
    2. Is measurement the same when substituting flax seed for
    xanthan gum.

    Thank you for your assistance and I am sure this will be only
    the first of many more questions as I undertake baking let along

      Hi Mary,

      Glad you enjoy them.

      So to answer your questions, for the first one, I will write an article on how to properly grind it into a flour. So stay tuned!

      And the second question, to substitute for xanthan gum, use the same measurement of flax as the xanthan gum, but then mix the flax with double the amount of boiling water. This creates a jell-like mixture that will add the necessary binding in breads. You can also reference this article, https://gluten-free-bread.org/make-substitutions-xanthan-gum-baking

      Does that answer your questions?
