Let's say that you are not using wheat, corn, or oats. Is it still possible to make some sort of granola type bar? What do you use? I have read that you place the ingredients on a cooking sheet, bake, and then cut the pieces to the desired size (bits may be better than bars). Anyway...what have you tried? Also, I was told that sharing a microwave with someone who uses wheat is probably okay, but what about an oven? It isn't too risky?

Oven should be fine-- just be sure you put things on cookies sheets etc.

i use nuts and seeds ground in a coffee grinder mixed with some sort of nut butter, honey/agave syrup, an egg, a splash of oil, and spices. Generally, I add in a bit of flour (buckwheat, corn, or rice) or quinoa flakes until I like the consistency. Go easy on the sugar. You want something that holds together, but that doesn't stick to your hands.

I usually press the dough into thin rounds, like crackers or cookies, between my palms. Bake at a low temp until lightly browned (325 F), then bake at 200 F or as low as your oven will go until as dehydrated as you like. I've also pressed the dough into the pan and baked the first time, removed, cut, and baked the second time. Sort of like biscotti.

2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable
3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG
4/2010 Negative biopsy
5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)
5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

Just to clarify...make sure it's the Quinoa flakes...you wouldn't cook those for this. (Think oatmeal...cooked, wouldn't work for bars...uncooked it would)
