Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Rather than a fork to press the dough into the classic criss-cross pattern, use a cookie stamp or potato masher.
  • Xanthan gum is a sugar-based ingredient that is used as a thickener and stabilizer in recipes and can be found online or in grocery stores.
  • Store leftover bars in an airtight container.
