Regular all purpose flour is full of gluten. The rest of the ingredients are ok. Try substituting with a Gluten free flour such as Knicknick, or Bob’s Red Mill brands. We get it at Walmart or health food stores, but be prepared to pay a lot for it. You can cook anything you want just by substituting flours in the regular recipes and making sure the other stuff does not contain gluten.

Answer by Mr. Smartypants

Gluten is what makes bread bread! It’s the protein in wheat that causes dough to be ‘gooey’ and trap the gas bubbles made by the yeast. In fact the difference between ‘bread flour’ and ‘all purpose flour’ is that bread flour has MORE gluten so it will rise higher.

Some people have a medical condition where they can’t process gluten, so it makes them sick. It gives them stomachaches and diarrhea So someone figured out how to remove the gluten from wheat and find some artificial substitute to make the bread rise. I’ve never had gluten-free bread but I’ve had gluten free cupcakes and pastries and they are not bad at all. But unless you have this problem (called celiac disease), you have no reason to want to avoid gluten.
