gluten-free elephant ears

One of my absolute favorite things about going to the beach is having elephant ears.  When I went gluten-free, I had to give it up but I just could not let go of having a piece of fried dough dripping with honey and cinnamon.   When I lived in Arizona, this was called Indian Fry Bread and in Oregon, they’re called Elephant Ears.   This recipe is soft yet has cripy parts that just make you not want to share.

It is egg-free, dairy-free and vegan. This recipe uses white rice flour, coconut flour and psyllium husk powder.

Hey Kelly. I was interested in joining your joyful kitchen club. But when I tap on it, it says it's closed right now but will be open again in June. It's August, so just wondering.
