Two rules for converting a baking recipe to its gluten-free counterpart.

These bars look so good and will be perfect made with leftover cranberries.  When looking for recipes to make with gluten free ingredients, there are two rules of thumb:

1.  Most of the ingredients are naturally gluten free

2.  The recipe doesn’t rely on the gluten-ous texture of the flours to create the texture of the whole thing.

This beautiful bar fits the bill:

1.  The filling is gluten free.  If you use gluten free oats, the crumb crust & topping is mostly gluten free too.

2.  Substitute the 1 cup flour with the standard gluten free mix that you use, plus 1 tsp guar gum.  Since the texture of the bar doesn’t rely on the flour, you’re golden!
