This baguette is great warm or toasted the next day. You can also use it for paninis. Amaranth grain imparts a nice crunch when toasted. This recipe can be made with egg replacement with good results; see instructions below.

1 cup white rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch/flour
⅓ cup corn flour
⅓ cup amaranth flour
⅓ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend of choice
2 tablespoons amaranth grain
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 eggs*
3 ounces coconut yogurt or plain yogurt of choice
¼ cup agave nectar or honey
¾ cup water
