Expert Tips

  • Look for vegan chocolate chips in the health food section of your grocery store. They may also be labeled as dairy and gluten free.
  • To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then stirring constantly until almonds are light brown.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
