Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

The secret to cutting perfect bars is to line the pan with foil so you can lift out the baked bars. Spray the foil as directed in the recipe.

Betty’s mixes won gold. The Edison Best New Product Awards are given annually and are voted on by a not-for-profit group. Enjoy this recipe using one of the mixes.
