About how much xantham gum would I need to use for this? Which GFlour would work best? I have soy, chickpea, and teff. I also have a metric ton of oats and a coffee mill that could make quinoa flour. I was just thinking I'd use an existing recipe and replace flours. I do realize that could produce disastrous results.

Thanks!

Are you thinking of a specific recipe to convert? I think you'd be fine just replacing the flour, as long as you have an effective and tacky binder. I'd just use all oat flour and oats, keeping it simple and skip gum use, as with your existing flours I find there tends to be a distinct aftertaste that matters less when stronger flavors are being used like molasses, chocolate, and espresso but can overwhelm vanilla, light caramel and maple notes. Also, eating the dough, which I consider crucial to cookies success, would not be fun with those flours.

But here is someone who did the work for you, and I can attest to the yumminess of these- you could simply change the chips used.
