    Gluten-Free Bar Directions:
    Beat egg and add other wet ingredients and mix well. Add dry ingredients. Bake in a glass 9” x 13” pan about 30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Bars will be a slightly browned. Bars will be very thin and moist. Let cool.

    Gluten-Free Frosting Ingredients:
    ¼ cup butter
    ½ cup brown sugar
    2 tablespoon milk
    ½ pound powdered sugar

    Gluten-Free Frosting Directions:
    Melt butter, add brown sugar and milk. Heat to boiling and cook 1 minute. Remove from burner and add powdered sugar, stirring until good frosting consistency. Spread onto bars.

    Note: The frosting hardens quickly, so mix it up and spread onto bars immediately while still warm. I actually added the powdered sugar a little at a time so I wouldnt add too much and dry out the frosting. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Happy fall!

    I made these for a cookie swap and they are wonderful. I could eat the whole dish of them. Plan to make more. I baked them at 350F since she didn't have a temperature for baking on them and they only took about 15-20 minutes. After you frost them, let them sit to harden up so you can dish them out without them falling apart.

In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014.
