    Did I see these at the party today? If I did I am sad I didn’t try them!

    I really must try these in bar form! I have made GF chocolate chip cookies, but not in the bar form. Wow, those look good!

  3. So happy to find these! Used to make these bars growing up. I have little patience for cookies so bar style is wonderful. Still challenged by gluten free baking. Most does not meet my expectations.

    I have been gluten, dairy, and soy free for a year. In all this time I have tried many, many baking recipes. Some were edible, most were awful. This is my favorite recipe of all. Thank you so very, very much for posting it. I stumbled upon it way back in the first couple of months having to eat this way. For most of the past year it was my go to recipe when I felt like I was never going to be able to eat a decent baked good again. I don’t live where there are any bakeries that make even one item I can safely eat. Finding grocery items to try all the many different recipes has been difficult, usually I have to mail order items. This recipe tastes like something I used to bake full of gluten, dairy and soy. I can’t say it enough times THANK YOU!

  5. These bars are amazing!! I make them with Earth Balance instead of butter and enjoy life chocolate chips. Hands down one of the best things I have baked and I bake a lot.
