Gluten Free Elderflower Marmalade Oat Bars

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Elderflower Marmalade ** (available at Ikea)
  • 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 cup Cloud 9 gluten free flour blend (available at Costco)
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup Earth Balance non-dairy butter
  • 1 1/2 cups oats (Only Oats is non-contaminated oats)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 9×9 square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer combine the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, coconut sugar and baking powder.
  • Cut up the non-dairy butter into small pieces.
  • With stand mixer on low speed add the butter until batter resembles pea size sand.
  • Add the oats, coconut and almonds.
  • Press 1/2 the batter into the baking pan.
  • Spread the marmalade over the oat dough.
  • Top with remaining dough and lightly press down.
  • Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.
  • I find placing whole pan in refrigerator until bars are cold is the easiest way to slice them.
  • ** You can replace the marmalade for any kind of low sugar jam you would like to use.
  • Enjoy!

Gluten Free Honey Mustard Dressing



Ahhhh paninis….have you heard about paninis lately?
Do you know what a Panini is?
If you watch Oprah at all, this season, one of Oprah’s favorite things was the Breville Panini Press and her Panini sandwich.
A Panini is basically a fancy grilled cheese sandwich. Oprah’s was made with sourdough bread, turkey, pepper jack cheese, mayo, and fresh basil. That sounds good, right?
Well, if you are gluten free, like I am, you are not able to eat this sandwich. In fact, what do you do if you want to make a Panini?
Solution!
Try this great recipe for gluten free focaccia.
My Panini was filled with gluten free deli ham, swiss and cheddar cheese, spinach, and honey mustard dressing. The varieties are endless. My daughter likes ham, thinly sliced granny smith apples, brie cheese and fig jam (or cranberry relish). You decide.
Here is the recipe for my honey mustard dressing.
I like to dip my Panini in the dressing, it is a great dressing for chicken fingers too!
