Using gluten free bread mix for other things beside bread

paw1717 | Nov 27, 201411:04 AM     2

I inherited a package of Bob's Red Mill Gluten free Wonderful Bread mix. It contains a mixture of stone ground garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, corn starch, sweet white sorghum flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, guar gum, and also comes with a package of active dry yeast.
I rarely ever eat sandwiches and don't particularly have a need for traditional bread. But I was wondering if I could use this mix to make a dessert bread such as banana bread, pumpkin bread, coffee cake, etc. Or even better yet, muffins-- as I don't currently have a bread pan. OR can I somehow doctor this up to make herb biscuits or something like that?
I'm gluten free and do fine with cooking but I don't have much experience with gluten free baking and am not sure how those flours work.
Thanks for any ideas!
