Organic quinoa flour or organic amaranth flour can be used instead of tapioca flour. Since some individuals are senstive to xantham gum, guar gum is also an acceptable substitute. Instead of the cane sugar, organic agave syrup can be incorporated into the mixture . Agave syrup has a low gylcemic index, so it is suitable for those with diabetes.
