Introducing Gluten Free Classic Snacks!

Everyone, this is Classic Snacks. Classic Snacks, this is everyone! I’ve been waiting what feels like forever to introduce you to one another! Gluten Free Classic Snacks, my next cookbook, is coming in just a few short months (March 2015, if you preorder**!). Since I just got the proofs for the book (my last chance to make any edits before the book goes deep into the bowels of production at my publisher!), I’m able to show you the actual Table of Contents (well, without page numbers since that hasn’t happened yet!). My editor thought that was a great idea, and I took the liberty of including some of the actual photos from the pages of the book itself (photos taken by the incredibly talented Jennifer May (whose name will be on the final cover and that’s a promise!), styled by the magical Erin McDowell) . Fingers crossed that no one is mad at me for that little executive decision! In the coming weeks and months, I’ll be announcing plenty of exciting giveaways designed to get you as excited about pre-ordering** this book as I am excited to share it all with you!

**ETA: The book is available everywhere now!

Gluten Free Classic Snacks Table of Contents

We start off with alllllll kinds of important basic information, as you can see for yourself in the first Table of Contents page above. Ingredients, substitutions (because I know you want to know about substitutions, you tinkerer, you!), equipment (hint: precious little is necessary this time around!), tips and tricks, and (of course) Shoestring Savings info. Then we jump right into the first recipe chapter: cookies!!

Gluten Free Classic Snacks Cookies Chapter Opener

Each recipe chapter has an amazing chapter opener, like the one you see above and below. Which cookies can you spot above? It’s like Where’s Waldo, but much more important!

Gluten Free Classic Snacks Crackers Chapter Opener

Were you missing all the name brand crackers you used to love? Well, miss them no more. We’ve got you covered.

Snack cakes are in full representation in this book. FULL.

Gluten Free Weight Watchers-Style Chocolate Brownies

Just look at these Weight Watchers-Style Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies. Oh, didn’t I mention that there would be some Weight Watchers copycat recipes? *my bad* And in answer to your question: YES! Each Weight Watchers copycat recipe has only as many PointsPlus as there are in the original. Of course. Otherwise, what good is that recipe, amIright?! It doesn’t hurt that these brownies taste as good as, if not better than, any other rich, chocolate brownie I’ve ever had. Score!

Gluten Free Little Debbie-Style Star Crunch

Weren’t you just daydreaming about Little Debbie Star Crunch? I thought so. And these are not just glorified Rice Krispies treats, by the way. Just like the original, there is an actual thin cookie inside, covered in caramel-chocolate-crispies. Amen.

Breakfast and fruity treats also abound!

Gluten Free Pop Tarts-Style Toaster Pastries

Every type of Pop Tart you can imagine is in here—and they’re light and flaky and sweet and they are nothing short of amazing when you pop them in the toaster-oven. Just like the original.

We wrap up with a chapter on every type of gluteny candy imaginable—all safely gluten free. But before we get to those candies….

Gluten Free Vita Tops-Style Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops

We have VitaTops. Lots of VitaTops. How delicious are these? Don’t have the proper pan to make larger, flatter muffin-top-style cakes? Just make them as regular muffins (instructions for how to bake are of course in the book). (don’t tell but that’s what I usually do—and I freeze them in batches and defrost on the counter overnight and feel great giving them to my kids for breakfast.

Gluten Free Kit Kat-Style Crisp Wafers in Milk Chocolate Candies

I leave you with these amazingly crispy, crunchy Kit-Kat-style wafers in milk chocolate. Please excuse my melodrama when I tell you that this is the recipe that I’ve been working on (off and on of course!) for 10 years. If you google “homemade Kit Kats,” every gluten-containing recipe you’ll find will make use of something called “tort wafers.” They come in sheets and everyone just buys them, layers them with chocolate and voila. But we are gluten free! We can’t buy tort wafers. And coming up with just the right ingredients and just the right method to make gluten free tort wafers that stay crispy in milk chocolate—and aren’t hard to make? Well, let’s just say it was a proud moment. *sniff*

    I think I need this in my life. Kit-Kats are my favorite candy bar and tagalongs my favorite cookie. I was so sad when I realized I couldn’t eat them anymore. I love baking for the sake of baking, but I have struggled a bit with gluten free baking. I think I could have some fun with this.

    I’ve been reading about the arsenic in rice and was wondering how that would pertain to your recipes as they are almost all rice flour. I have asked Bob’s about it but haven’t gotten an answer yet.

      I’m afraid that is pretty far outside my area of expertise, Karen. I would speak to your doctor for some comfort on that!

    Do you have any idea how long after publication we’ll have to wait for the Kindle version. I do need a larger print these days!

    • December 22, 2014 at 10:19 AM

      Hi, Phoebe, you should be able to preorder the kindle edition before publication (no delay!), and it will automatically download for you on the pub date.
