With the wide variety of gluten-free, allergy-friendly snack bars available these days, why bother making your own? The answer is that fresh homemade bars are easy, delicious and budget-friendly. Plus, homemade is a great way to control ingredients. You decide how much sweetener to add. You pick the kind of dried fruit you like. The amount of fiber (think flax meal, oats, coconut and nuts) is in your hands. If you’re allergic to nuts, you can use sunflower seeds and sunflower butter instead. And you can pack extra protein into your bars, making them a healthy, filling snack or in a pinch, a grab-and-go meal.

Gluten Free & More editors tested gluten-free pancake and waffle mixes. Each made the mixes to their own dietary standards (for example, egg-free or dairy-free). Each mix was tested as either a pancake, a waffle or both. Samples were then frozen and reheated for the ultimate round of testing. After testing 71 mixes, we can tell you that many mixes are very similar. Those with non-traditional flours—like sorghum, buckwheat, coconut or almond flour—stand out for taste and added nutrition. Note that having too much of a unique ingredient can influence overall flavor.
