*You can use guar gum or equal amount of flax or chia. Ideally it would be better made without any substitutions. lf you have a good gluten free flour you could use that for the equal quantity of flours and starch mentioned. Make sure to check if it has xanthan gum, if it has then you skip xanthum gum.

**You can use non dairy butter
