  1. Could this be made with regular flour?

    • Yes, they are similar in nature, the only difference maybe that the GF flour will not be quite as lift as regular flour as it is the gluten that holds at the height they rise rise (also helps to get that high rise)

  2. I agree Sharon. I’m off sugar and wouldn’t go near this because of the high sugar content in the dates. I’d have a few raspberries Though! 🙂
