Beware of Cooking Sprays
So yeah, I made these yummy brownie chocolate chip cookie bars that are supposed to be gluten-free, but my gut is telling me there is something wrong. What gives?
As I curled up in bed last night with Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s book, The G-Free Diet, I may have come across a partial answer. She spends a great amount of time talking about cross contamination in the kitchen, but she also mentions cooking spray with grain alcohol’s as a possible source of gluten. Did I contaminate my seemingly gfree cookies? I know when I ate a little bite of one tonight I started to swell up like a puffer fish. I’m taking some benydryl and calling it a night.
More research is obviously needed, but more than likely in the future I will probably just end up coating my baking dishes with butter or oil and skip the cooking spray.
