Smores Topping

Enjoy!

For a gluten-free version of these bars substitute 1 1/4 cups gluten-free baking mix (with xanthan gum) for the all-purpose flour in the recipe and use gluten-free graham crackers in the topping.

Out of gluten-free baking mix? Mix your own with gluten-free flours you have on hand. Try using 1/2 cup oat flour, 1/2 cup sorghum or brown rice flour mixed with 2 tablespoons each of potato starch and tapioca starch. Then sift in 1 teaspoon xanthan gum.
