    I would appreciate the nutritional content. My stepdaughter is type 1, but also has Celiacs. I need recipes that give me the carb count so that she can have fun gluten free treats, and I can know how to count it in her daily intake.

    Love this recipe. My husband is celiac and is training for a marathon so I needed things that give nutrition and are quick and easy. Plus, my girls love them and I know they are getting better nutrients and no gluten than rice crispy treats (which this reminds me of). Thanks thanks they are tasty

    I love these breakfast bars. I found this recipe about 2 months ago and always have a batch made for something to eat on the go.

    I was wondering if anybody had an alternative to the Carnation Instant Breakfast...The label is now showing this it is processed in a factory that processes wheat. This looks like a great recipe and would love to make it for my daughter! Thanks!

    I, too, had the same concern. I found a post on another site in which Nestle had responded to a consumer's inquiry about Carnation Instant Breakfast. They said, "In response to your inquiry, some flavors of CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST contain gluten. In the ready-to-drink form, all flavors, with the exception of Strawberry Creme, contain gluten. In the powder form of CARNATION INSTANT BREAKFAST, Chocolate Malt flavor contains gluten. The source of gluten is not wheat, it is barley gluten which is found in the flavoring. The flavor is 4.2% malt syrup of which 2% is gluten. The other flavors are gluten-free." I'm thinking of trying to use a different flavor other than chocolate, though I wonder how that will taste?

    Although Carnation Instant Breakfast isn't gluten free, meal replacement pre-mixed drinks may be - Ensure and Boost both say gluten-free on their labels.

    These protein breakfast bars are excellent and a life saver!

    I've replaced the carnation instant breakfast with Gen Soy brand soy protein shake. My daughter and I aren't huge chocolate fans so I split the powder in half using half vanilla and half chocolate. I've also added a 1/2 tsp of McCormick's pure almond extract to give it just a touch more flavor. I've found that it is a bit dry and doesn't stick together well so I add a few teaspoons of water. Her whole volleyball team loves them and they don't even realize they are gluten-free! Thank you so much for this recipe.

    A little sinful? Perhaps. But, I believe everyone needs a few desserts under their belt if for no other reason than to break out on a rainy day. Homemade chocolate pudding is a nostalgic must-have and naturally gluten-free. Superfine sugar isn’t crucial, but it’s smoother and melts easier. The vanilla gives the whipped cream a little boost and can be made a few hours ahead of tim...

    I can’t say enough about the wonder of no-cook meals. When the weather heats up and you want to spend as little time as possible in a hot kitchen, easy to make salads like these are perfect. This particular salad is so delicious, refreshing and juicy, that you’ll happily welcome a few drips running down the side of your mouth. Tossing in some arugula or baby greens is a nice com...

    Messing with the beloved deviled egg can be a dangerous gambit in my family. Luckily, a little apple goes a long way in this recipe. I like a bit more tang so I tend towards equal parts mayo and mustard in my filling, but you could easily use more mayonnaise like most recipes call for.
    Ingredients:
    6 hard-boiled eggs
    ½ Granny Smith apple, diced
    ½ shallot, diced
