These Gluten Free Strawberry Brownie Bars are so good! Nobody suspects they are gluten free; everyone just loves these brownies.
Gluten Free Strawberry Brownie Bars
Looking for a great treat to make that is Gluten Free, but doesn’t taste like it? I know it can be hard to include gluten free treats that aren’t rice krispy treats when you’re asked to bring something to a group function, and if you aren’t comfortable baking with gluten free mixes, then box mixes are your friend. These gluten free strawberry brownie bars start off with a gluten free brownie mix and yummy Lucky Leaf strawberry pie filling, which is naturally gluten free. I’ve added a gluten free pretzel crust, then layered on some frosting and a chocolate layer. These gluten free strawberry brownie bars will be everyone’s favorite, regardless!
Now, if you don’t want to make these gluten free, you can totally swap out regular pretzels and brownie mix. It’s all good with me. However, if you are interested in dabbling in gluten free baking for friends and family, this is an easy recipe to start with. Since it’s all from premade ingredients, you don’t have to worry about mixing flours or using xantham gum. I’ve had a few gluten free failures in the kitchen. UGH!
Your gluten free friends will appreciate your hard work in the kitchen.
And your non-gluten free friends won’t even notice the difference.
