Okay… stick with the plan. ….. ….. Seriously.
The second day of baking, I decided to ramp up the brown rice flour content, and while I was at it I added some sorghum in the mix too. This turned out to be a bad Idea. The cookies were awful. Oh, they tasted fine, but they were NOT normal. Sort of spread out in a weird fashion and all I could tasted was overbaked brown sugar.
Third attempt- I used egg replacement powder mixed with hot water instead of the flax gel. The cookies were “sturdier”, and tasted great, and they look like the Keebler elves made them. So cool.
My advice? Stay with the recipe.
