Here's a post by Gluten Free Girl about not needing gums in gluten free baking.

It's interesting, I know some gf ppkers dislike xanthan, I don't often use it, the only recipe I can think of is chickpea cutlets. I've never though cupcakes, muffins or cookies needed either of them.

i have read that same article. i have yet to have non crumbly success, which leads me to believe that xantham gum is needed if you want a baked good to not fall apart.

i'm one of those who really dislikes xanthan gum. in a lot of recipes i can kinda taste it and it can upset my stomach. i've always just subbed in 2 tbsp of ground flax + just 2 tbsp of water (for a thick flax "egg") and it's always worked well for me. i make my pizza dough and pierogies, cookies, cakes and cupcakes this way and they've never fallen apart or been crumbly. which is a good thing, because i can't see xanthan and i being good friends any time soon. ahahhahahaha!
