I just want everyone to know (new to gluten free and been having a hard time coping, so maybe you all know this) but I bought the Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownies, at first they seemed REALLY thick...but YUM!!!! They taste just like the brownies I have always made. I take comfort in knowing at least when I crave brownies, I will be able to get my fix :) Have a good day everyone!!

Yep, I agree! (And I'm extremely picky.) Those are the BEST brownies--I can't tell that they're gluten-free. My husband and kids love them, too. And their chocolate chip cookie mix is really good--not too crumbly and not too cakey. Hooray for Betty Crocker!!! Now, if I could only find a GOOD gluten-free yellow cake mix.

There are alot of ways to do brownies. I love Trader Joes and Bob's mixes, can't do betty crocker because of the soy. The hands down favorite are my peanut butter swirl brownies. I use a mix of canola oil and palm shortening in the place of butter or vegetable oil.

Peanut Butter Swirl

1 cup(s) creamy peanut butter (I have been known to use more than a cup)

1/3 cup(s) sugar

4 tablespoon(s) butter or margarine ( I mix palm shortening and canola oil)

2 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour ( I use Bob's all purpose baking mix, about 1 1/2 teaspoons with just a little bit of zantham gum) I know I stink at actual measurements

1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

1 large egg

I mix this all together well :)

I plop glbs of the peanut butter mixture on top of the brownie mix and push it down into the pan and swirl it a bit so that there's less seperation when you've baked it. Still some of the peanut butter mix will seperate but its still awesome. This is more of a fork brownie than a grab and bite brownie.

more things to add to brownie mixes-

comstock cherry pie filling- great blackforest brownies,I want to find a good DF gluten-free fudge top top these with.

marshmallows, pecans, and caramel (smuckers or homemade) made great rocky road brownies

more when I have time to post...enjoy. I'm making 2 huge batches and freezing today.

I've always made The Barefoot Contessa's Outrageous Brownies... you can find the recipe at Food TV. The recipe makes TONS and they're super chocolate-y and rich. There's so little flour in them (1 cup I think) that my gluten-free blend (Analise Robert's) works really well!

The Betty Crocker brownies also freeze well (I freeze and hide a few just for me - forget my husband and boys!)

The Betty Crocker yellow cake is good, too. I used it to make a pineapple upsidedown cake and it was great.

Just cover the bottom of the pan with a paste of dark brown sugar and melted butter. Cover that with crushed pineapple. Bake as the box directs. When done, invert on serving plate.

The Betty Crocker gluten-free Devils food cake mix is also good.

I can find the white cake, the cookies, and the brownies pretty much everywhere around me - but I have NEVER seen the Devil's Food. Looks like I have a mission after Thanksgiving!!

I'm sure this is because here in WI we have all the Devil's Food and none of the White cake!

    It’s so awful isn’t it. Do you ever get dizziness and a numb face? Mines just awful atm and I constantly think oh it must be something more serious   It’s so awful isn’t it. Do you ever get dizziness and a numb face? Mines just awful atm and Iconstantly think oh it must besomething more serious  
    Vomiting, passing out, abdominal pain that occurs as soon as my stomach empties into the small intestine (I consume mushy, well-cooked foods then), hives, allergic reactions are way more severe, indigestion, anxiety, irrtability, fatigue, achy body, tingling, become lactose intolerant, constipation, diarrhea.  Yep, many things.  Symptoms can change too.  Celiac disease is like a chameleon.  Symptoms for me can last for about six months.  Most severe the first week and gradually getting better.  
What symptoms do you get?
