  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together tapioca flour, corn starch, gluten-free all purpose flour, sugar, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt. In a separate medium bowl mix together butter, oil, greek yogurt, and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed through.
  3. Roll dough into balls then roll in sugar and cinnamon mixture and place on baking sheets.
