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. :(

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      after nearly 6 years gluten free, i still have some balance/anxiety/neuro issues.  they're the last to leave the symptom party, i'm afraid.  i attribute this to the years and years i went undiagnosed and untreated (25 years~! )  i don't have much faith in the medical field's intelligence or in their ethics. funny story:  my obgyn bill had a charge on it that my insurance denied - $25.00 for 'smoking cessation intermediate 5-8 min'  WHAAAAAT?!  (the doctor said it would be a good idea if i quit smoking.  i'm like 'no shit, sherlock')  called the billing office and told them i'm not paying it.  WHY?  1.  do you have any idea how much money i would owe my dad????!!!  2.  i don't smoke with my vagina.  they took off the charge
    • 9 year Old going through testing
      because they make more $$ treating symptoms   every time i see the new 'miracle' pills for 'ibs-c' and 'ibs-d' it just makes me crazy.  ibs is just a symptom..........  as are all these other things that can be reversed just by changing the diet.  but shhhh let's not talk about it, keep the patient ill and miserable, and keep that $$ rolling in.   and to leave a child ill and in pain is just deplorable.  i'm sorry for him.  go git 'em, mama!
    • Do I have Celiac?
      My IgG is 37.6.  B12, D3, and iron deficient.  Hashimoto's thyroid.  Do I have Celiac?  
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Not really. She just got out of the hospital for the 2nd time. Upon discharge, they said she will continue to vomit. Makes it very hard to go to school. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      You are misunderstanding the term hidden gluten.  A food item, of which probiotics are not covered under, can legitimately have trace amounts of gluten and still be gluten free.  There is no test that can test down to zero, regardless of what you hear.  Most testing generally tests down to 5ppm and the vast majority........  most likely 99% of Celiac's, will not have an autoimmune reaction to the food.  I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and I eat some processed foods, from reputable companies, and I am doing phenomenal, 11 years gluten-free.  Lots and lots of other people have this experience also. This is not an example of hidden gluten. There can be food ingredients that may be made from a gluten component that may not be as easy to distinguish but if you learn label reading as you should, with time you will be easily able to identify what is safe or something that is questionable. Can it be daunting at first to learn all this new information?  Absolutely, but if you can read, you can learn. There are also many probiotics which are completely safe.  I have been taking them for 30 years and have never been glutened once from them.  The news reports (for what they are worth now) say that there was gluten discovered in probiotics.  That does not mean all probiotics are suspect. You can find out from the Gluten Free Watchdog which ones failed and which ones did not, then make your choice to buy.  Supplements are not covered under the food laws but again.....read those labels and check with manufacturers!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
