Gluten-free desserts can be just as scrumptious as others. It is a common misconception that gluten-free equals less taste. As you will see with the recipes below, that simply is not true.
As more and more Americans begin to follow a diet without gluten, the recipes grow in variety and taste. An article in Forbes states that 3.1 million Americans follow a gluten-free diet.
Do you love pecan pie? Maybe you enjoy the hands free desserts. Then Maple-Pecan Bars are for you. For an added perk, cut the bars in a variety of sizes to please all your guests. Bars are a popular option during the holidays. It is easy to split up the bars to bring along to more than one event.
The recipe shows a winning hands-on prep time of only 9 minutes. Leave plenty of time to cook, though. From start to finish, the estimate is two hours.
If cutting into the suggested 20 bars, each one will only contain 149 calories. Compare that to a thin slice of pecan pie that has 503 calories. All the taste, but not the calories..
