OK so we didnt like these. They didnt rise at all and were a bit dense.They seemed to turn golden in colour after 15 minutes of cooking but it could have been my oven. I used guar gum in replacement of xanthan gum because of a corn allergy. I'm not sure if my bean flour is considered white bean flour but I wouldnt want to use anything soy (soy beans are white). I did replace the butter with canola oil because of a dairy allergy. I will not be making these again.
