I bet you could easily do it with organic oat, wheat, or rice flour! Here's how I make my dumplings... 1 stick unsalted butter, softened. 2-3 cups flour 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp black pepper 1.5 tsp baking powder 1 cup skim milk
Cut the butter with a fork in until the dry mixture resembles cornmeal. Blend in the milk until the dough is completely blended. If one cup is not enough, add milk one tablespoon at a time. Drop the dumplings into the broth one rounded tablespoon at a time.
I bet by using a low sodium chicken broth, especially a homemade low sodium chicken broth, you will also be making a healthier version. Using skim milk cuts the fat. Using organic whole wheat flour or oat flour will add more fiber. HTH! ~Abi, a creative cook

I found acouple of recipes that might work for you. The first one is an overall reduced fat version of chicken and dumplings. The second one is similar but it uses cornmeal for the dumplings. I hope it works for you!! :)
