To begin I dumped some margarine, Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour and granulated sugar into a mixing bowl. 

I combined them using an electric hand mixer.

Once the ingredients were blended they formed a crumbly mixture.  

I then dumped the mixture into an 8 inch square pan that had been sprayed with cooking oil and lined with parchment paper.

Using my hands, I pressed the crust down to pack it evenly in the pan.

Then I placed it in a 350F oven to bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

While the base was cooking I prepared the topping by measuring some maple syrup, almond milk, brown sugar, the remaining margarine and chopped pecans into a sauce pan.

Then I stirred all the ingredients together over medium heat.

I continued stirring until the mixture came to a boil and then I let it simmer for 2 minutes.

When it was done simmering I poured it in the pan over top of the prepared crust. 

Then I returned the pan to the 350F oven for another 20 minutes.

After removing it from the oven I let it cool slightly before running a knife around the edges. 

I allowed it to cool completely in the pan before lifting it out with the parchment paper and cutting it into squares.

    Could I use butter?
    Could I use cow’s milk?

      Hi Glenda,
      I think that it is fine to use butter and cow’s milk. I just have to watch my dairy intake as well as my gluten intake. Let me know how they turn out if you try them.
      Thanks,
      Kathleen
