In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
I was actually trying to make peanut butter cookies, but I was running out of time, so I dumped the batter into a greased 9” x 13” pan and baked them for 25 minutes at 350F, and they were SO GOOD!
And its the same old peanut butter cookie batter we all use:
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
A couple of glugs of molasses (I like the flavor and texture)
Mix, dump, bake, devour! Theyre particularly good with chocolate frosting, or chocolate chips mixed in the batter, or both.
Note: I like my brownies chewy, so I might bake for only 20 minutes next time or else lower the temp to 325F (my oven runs hot, anyway).
