I love Yummy Bar Recipes! I don’t know about you but it seems like everyone I talk to has an issue with gluten.  It’s more & more prevalent & there are more & more products on the market that are gluten free.   I know that while I don’t always cook gluten free- when I do, we all feel better around here.  So I have been doing my best to be more conscious about what our foods have in them – which is part of why I have been so focused on making the kids breakfast for so long now.

But lately I have been really wanting to make more desserts that are gluten free in hopes that the hubs will want to eat more of what I make instead of having to pass on all the goodies.  So this time I made Gluten Free Chocolate Strawberry Gooey Bars.  Oh they turned out so tasty & you would never know they are gluten free.  Just goes to show you that gluten free doesn’t mean flavor free or no dessert.

Did you know that Pillsbury now has it’s first-ever gluten free cookie dough, pizza dough & pastry/pie dough??  I was pretty stoked to find that out & even more thrilled to try it out.  I know that many moms don’t have time to make cookies & other treas from scratch & often buy the ready made doughs & crusts.  Before now that meant that those with a gluten intolerance couldn’t eat them.  Now they can.  So many people now are looking for gluten free solutions for their families & Pillsbury has made eating gluten free easy convenient & delicious. These are all found in the refrigerated aisle of your store. These are so quick & easy to use – virtually no prep time at all.


So to celebrate these new gluten free products from Pillsbury I’m giving away a premium baking set.

  • 1/4 cup mini marshmallows


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spray glass 9x13 pan with cooking spray
  3. Add cookie dough to pan & press around to flatten & cover bottom
  4. Add preserves & spread out in thin even layer
  5. add coconut, then chocolate chips (both), then marshmallows
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes until brown on bottom.
