A new warning about eating raw flour has come out. To keep this gluten free cookie dough safe, I highly advise you do one of these things to toast the flour before using it in this recipe:
- Toast the flour for 5 minutes. Just spread the flour out thinly on a piece of parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cook on 325 for 5-8 minutes. This will cook out any potential bacteria issues.
- You can also toast raw flour in a frying pan. Cook while whisking constantly over medium heat for 5 minutes. Cook in small batches so that all flour toasts.
