    Thank you so very much . Apart from the gluten I also have an allergic reaction to peanuts. Can you suggest an alternative to almond flour? Thank you

      Check out the article Secrets to Baking Gluten Free Bread under the Flour/Starch Substitutions section. It will list the other flours that can be substitute for almond flour (look under the High Protein Flours column). Although having said that in this recipe almond flour is the only flour used, and it is used in a large quantity, and since its texture is very different from other flours, you may not get the same results if you substitute in a quinoa flour (for example). You may not need as much liquid as the recipe calls for, so use only just enough liquid until a spreadable dough is created. Please let me know how it turns out, and what you used and I can update the recipe. Thanks!

      Since peanuts are legumes and almonds are tree nuts, how do they relate.
