Tips from our Bakers

  • To make a non-dairy version: Substitute 1/2 cup butter with 1/2 cup vegetable shortening.
  • Egg replacement tips: both the flax egg replacer, and the starch egg replacer worked well with our GF cookie mix. The flax replacer made chewier cookies, the starch recipe, crisper. If you like chewy cookies, go with the flax gel.
  • To to make this mix into a bar: mix in up to 3 cups of assorted chips, dried fruit, chopped nuts and coconut then spread into a greased or parchment lined 9"x13" pan. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes. Our favorite bar so far? We used a 1 cup of chocolate chips with ½-cup each of dried cranberries, shredded coconut, gluten-free oats, and chopped walnuts.
