    @seasideliz, If you can add a comment for each thing you did I’ll give you an entry for each. I know it’s a pain but it’s too hard to go through and read everyone’s comments and figure out what they did. That’s why each entry item says “leave a comment.”

    Thanks so much. Sending hugs. :)

    I would love to be entered for this giveaway – I had been toying with wanting Sweet Freedom, but going gluten-free, I was not so sure, but reading your review made me realize just how many gluten-free recipes are in the book.

    Amy,
    Thanks so much for this amazing review! (And thanks for mentioning Canada AM–it was such a blast!) Glad that the bars worked out well with the grind-your-own oats option, too. :) And I didn’t realize they don’t freeze solid–will have to keep that in mind next time I bake them!

    I should also mention for your GF readers that during cookbook testing, two of my testers were entirely gluten free. They made many of the spelt-based recipes using all purpose GF flour, and had great results–so GF readers can still have access to many of the non-GF recipes, too. :)

    PS I appreciate including my twitter page as one of the entry options–I think I’ll have to copy that idea next time I do a giveaway ;)

    Hi Amy,

    I made these tonight and oh my goodness they are delectable. I did make a lot of substitutions, based on what we had in the house, so I thought I’d pass them on just FYI. I used palm sugar instead of Sucanat, egg instead of flaxseed, cow milk instead of soy or almond milk, coconut oil instead of sunflower, and Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose GF Flour mix instead of oat flour. And they were truly delicious! Thanks so much. :)

    These are incredibly delicous! I substituted agave nectar for the sucanat and reduced the liquids as I’ve seen recommended online. Also used slivered almonds instead of coconut. I now have a healthy and sinfully delicious (not to mention LOW prep time) breakfast every morning. LOVE your site and thank you so much for sharing.
