Wife has a ginger allergy. Is it possible to substitute it with a different pungent spice? Maybe cumin?

Thanks for your question. We would not recommend using cumin and suggest simply leaving the ginger out.

I want to make a gluten free version of these - how would you alter the recipe? Would you just swap for gluten free flour? I feel like more moisture (maybe oil?) would need to be added so as not to lose the texture?

Thanks for your question. You can substitute gluten-free flour. Doves Farm is a very good one. Sometimes a bit more liquid is required so you could add a splash of milk to the mixture. We have an alternative gluten-free brownie recipe here:
