EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Gluten-free ingredients, such as almond butter made from ground almonds, provide vitamin E and monounsaturated fat. Look for almond butter in the baking aisle of your grocery store.

When measuring brown sugar for baking recipes, be sure to firmly pack it into the measuring cup.
