    What is xanthan gum??? What can you substitute instead. Also, what flours can you use instead of the three listed?????

    These muffins were delicious and o so light! I used a cup and a half of GF mix instead of the 3 separate flours. And I also added a package of plain gelatin to the dry ingredients to help with holding everything together. I would definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe!
