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.
