Just wanted to post that the Betty Crocker Brownie mix is amazing. Tastes so good like real brownies.

I found the mix at the grocery store (Schnucks in St. Louis). They also have cake and cookie mixes.

The cookies were very good also except after eating a couple the first time I had some stomach pain, tried again a few days later and wound up with bad cramps. Made sure everything was on the up and up with gluten-free and pans, unless something else caused the trouble. Sorry to be a downer, I will try the brownies next.

The brownies are also good if you add chocolate chips to them. :D

If you like Fruity Pebbles, you may also like Cocoa Pebbles (be sure the boxes are marked gluten-free as they haven't been gluten-free for that long). There's another kind available, too, and I can't think of the name of it. There's also another kind that's not gluten-free. The boxes are well labeled though...just make sure it's marked gluten-free.

I think they are fairly new. And its only at one local grocery that I've seen. Maybe they will come to Canada soon!

The pebbles were definitley marked. I saw someone post on here about them and immediatley drove to the store.

And inside was a free fruity pebbles snack bar, that was also labeled gluten free! I was so excited like a little kid getting a cool toy in my cereal box!

I make a pan of 8x8 of the brownie mix. Let it cool completely ( I let it sit on my counter for about a day or two) flip out of pan cut into 9 pieces and wrap and freeze individual servings. When I need a quick snack/dessert, I just take one out of the freezer and nuke for about 15-20 seconds....AWESOME! The brownie mix already has chips in it.

I love the brownies as well! When I treat myself, I frost them with gluten-free Betty Crocker icing. Paula Dean made brownies once and put candy bars in the middle. I thought that would be a good idea to kick up the gluten-free brownie mix, but haven't tried it.

Do you remember what kind of candy bars she used?

I bet you could frost them with a chocolate ganache glaze, too, which is so easy to make and so sinfully rich. Or how about Andes Mints?

Maybe you could order some online or make a request at your grocery store to the manager? Good luck!

I'm not sure...there's a Mennonite-type store near here that used to carry them but no longer do so. I think there is another shop somewhere that carries them but have no clue where.

I failed to tell you that I make about 3 batches.........and my significant other does not eat chocolate (yeah, I know "who doesn't eat chocolate?") But that's ok with me becasue I never have to worry about him eating my things. I eat lots of chocloate!

Just not available in Canada. I have tried ordering from the General mills site but they don't ship to canada I can buy them and ship a package to anyone in the States...but that doesnt help me :( I signed a petition last week to hopefully bring them here. I can't get Chex cereal or bisquick either. And I know the Chex has been available for a while. If anyone hears of a site where I can buy them from Please let me know :)

Have you asked your local grocery stores where you shop regularly to start carrying them? That's always worked for me.

yeah sometimes you can find a 2nd hand distributor or store that will order it just for you.

There is a bakery here in STL called Andrea's gluten-free and they will ship your order to a grocer or market and you can pick it up. Maybe someone on the site could put together a package for you if that doesn't work. There seems to be a lot of helpful nice people on here.

I believe she used Symphony toffee almond candy bars by hershey. I think you could use anything gluten-free. Pour half the batter in then add any gluten-free candy bar, pour the rest on top. Then why not use a galze....Yum! ;)

Nope, but I am a firm believer in the squeaky wheel gets the grease theory.

They are a tad tricky to bake. I've made them and didn't cook them long enough and they were too wet for my tastes. I think as with anything gluten-free it's often a compromise. When they're perfectly done you get a slightly drier and chewier outer perimeter (which I prefer), ie. the brownies on the outside part of the baking pan. And the brownies on the inner part of the pan are more moist and soft, much richer and also very delicious.

I've also made the cookies several times, and they are very good IMO. I've never had any reactions to them. I put lots of nuts in mine and bake them a little longer as I like a crisp cookie. They are very difficult to keep crisp however. I finally found that if I use a locking tupperware type product such as the more expensive Rubbermade and Sterilyte products, the cookies can stay crispy for several days (about as long as it takes me to eat them all).

best regards, lm

What is in canned frosting that is bad for a celiac? I'm 6 months in and doing well with the obvious but I think I need a lot of work on the not-so-obvious. Have my first follow-up w/ the GI doc this Friday and I'm a bit nervous. :(

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. 
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Hi! So I've never posted in a medical forum but y'all seem super helpful so I figured I'd throw this out there! Sorry if this is long lol. Basically, I'm a 22 year old who has stomach problems for as long as I can remember and it's recently gotten worse. I remember having bad stomach aches and diarrhea off and on since I was little. I finally told my parents and saw a GI in high school who took an xray, said it was IBS, and told me to eat more fiber. Around the same time I was feeling weak all the time and I was having what kinda felt like panic attack symptoms without the actual psychological panic. It kind of felt like a hot flash or too much adrenaline? I just kept telling the doctors that I felt "off". I was also diagnosed with atrial flutter, sinus tach, and asthma for no apparent reason, and I just felt like crap in general some days with no explanation.  I leaned to deal with my stomach problems because everything seemed to come and go. Oddly enough when I went away to college it was a little better for my first year or two. Fast forward to about a year ago, and it started getting more consistent so I went to a new GI. She ordered an ultrasound of my abdomen and from there I actually found out that I had a poorly functioning gallbladder (without stones). I had that taken out in November and have not felt any better since. What's weird is that I never had what I would consider "gallbladder pain", as there really isn't a particular spot that hurts every time. Also I want to add that I am a super levelheaded person, so my doctor telling me it's IBS and to cut stress and see if it helps makes me roll my eyes. This is often how my diarrhea starts off these days: I'll feel bad hot flashes or just "off" and foggy for no reason, then hear the gurgles, get pain, and then diarrhea. Most of the time I feel better after that; sometimes I don't. But I think it's weird that I often feel fluish before my stomach even starts hurting.  Basically I just have all these weird vague symptoms that don't seem related and have been coming and going since at least high school. My current GI doc ordered IGA and IGG tests last summer which came back negative. She also did a colonoscopy a few weeks ago and that was negative too. Now she wants to do a small bowel xray with barium.  Here are my main symptoms: diarrhea 2-6 x a day (it ranges from just loose stools to full-on watery)  severe bloating to the point I look pregnant weird hot flashes that seem correlated to my stomach problems headaches had my gallbladder taken out even though I'm 22 and normal weight short stature (4' 10") nausea bad eczema   Does this really seem like IBS or could my blood results be wrong? My doctor seems to think she's thoroughly tested me for celiac. Would the small intestine xray show any of that? Thanks in advance!!!    
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
