    Orange Jar Bars (Gluten-Free)

    This recipe comes to us from Connie Sarros, author of the following cookbooks:

    • Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook.
    • Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook.
    • Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Working Adults.

    This one is from the just-released WFGF Cookbook for Kids and Working Adults:

    Ingredients:
    3 eggs
    ½ cup sugar
    ½ cup corn oil
    ½ cup orange juice
    1 Tablespoon grated orange rind
    1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
    1 cup gluten-free flour mixture
    2 ½ teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
    ½ teaspoon salt
    Confectioners sugar

    Directions:

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Break the eggs into a 1-quart jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and shake 15 times.
    • Add the sugar, oil, orange juice, orange rind and vanilla. Cover the jar and shake 20 more times.
    • Sift the flour mixture, baking powder and salt onto wax paper, then add to the jar. Shake 40 more times or until mixture is smooth.
    • Pour batter into an 8-inch square pan that has been sprayed with gluten-free nonstick spray.
    • Bake for 20 minutes or until the bars begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Have an adult help you take the hot pan out of the oven.
    • When the bars are cooled, sift confectioners sugar over the top, then cut into bars.

    Yield: 16 bars. Serving size: 1 bar
    Diabetic Adjustment: Use 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites in place of the 3 whole eggs. Use brown sugar substitute in place of the white sugar. Omit the confectioners sugar.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    This is one of my favorite desserts to make; it’s so fun to cook and serve. The sauce becomes incredibly aromatic as it cooks down. As simple, yet exotic desserts go, it’s a perfect way to top off a meal with flair. I usually poach peaches or pears in wine, but the rosemary in this recipe does something magical with the peach, I didn’t want to hide it behind the wine.
    Ingredients:
    2 pounds firm, ripe peaches
    ½ cup sugar
    ¼ cup water
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 strips lemon rind
    2 tablespoon lemon juice
    2 sprigs fresh rosemary
    Directions:
    Cut unpeeled peaches into 1-inch slices and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
    In a large saucepan, heat sugar, water, honey and remaining lemon juice over low-medium heat. Simmer until sugar dissolves completely. Add rosemary sprigs and lemon rinds and continue to simmer for 5-7 minutes, sauce will thicken. Add peach slices and cook until just tender, no more than 5 minutes.
    Remove from heat and discard rosemary and lemon pieces. Serve peaches slices over vanilla ice cream or yogurt and drizzle with sauce.

    Celiac.com 11/05/2013 - Halloween is over, and this year we offered a fun alternative to the standard store-bought fare--marshmallow caramel puffs.
    They are fun and easy to make, and kids just love to help make them, and, of course, to eat them. They turned out great, so I thought I'd share them here for next year.
    This recipe makes a dozen marshmallows, but it's easy to scale accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    1 dozen regular marshmallows
    1 dozen Kraft caramels
    ¾ cup almonds, crushed
    6 ounces melted dark chocolate
    Directions:
    Place crushed almonds into a bowl.
    Melt caramels in a double-boiler.
    Dip marshmallows halfway into the melted caramel.
    Remove, and let the excess drip off, then dip in crushed almonds.
    Place on a lightly oiled parchment-lined baking sheet until set.
    Drizzle white tops with melted chocolate.
    Allow to cool and serve.
    Note: Any marshmallows made by the Kraft, or Doumak companies are gluten-free. This includes Jet Puffed, Campfire, WalMart, and CVS brand marshmallows.
    Kraft caramels are also gluten-free.

    8-10 fresh yellow Ataulfo mangos, peeled and seeded ⅓ cup fresh whole milk yogurt ⅓ cup fresh cream ¼ cup coconut milk ⅓ cup sugar, as desired pinch of kosher salt Directions:
    Special equipment: four 4-ounce ice-pop molds or six 3-ounce molds, 4 or 6 ice-pop sticks
    Cook the coconut milk, cream, sugar and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely melted, about 5 minutes.
    Let cool completely at room temperature, at least 30 minutes.
    Put coconut mixture and mango pieces into a blender and blend well.
    Pour the mixture into the molds, leaving space at the top for expansion. Insert the sticks. Freeze until solid, 5 hours to overnight.
    Remove from molds, and serve frozen.
