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.
