Gluten free, vegan dessert

I have the WORST sweet tooth in the world and when it comes to finding delicious desserts that are gluten free. it can be a struggle.

I have found a few packaged items from Something Sweet Without Wheat and a brand at the grocery store that has great brownies. Yes, I know sweets aren’t good for you, but we can treat ourselves once in awhile (or once every few days).

I can across an awesome recipe that includes bananas and chocolate, not sure if it gets better than that. You can taste the sweet chocolate in every bite and the healthy banana adds a great touch.

Let me know what you think when you try this Chocolate Chip Banana Square!

Chocolate Chip Banana Squares | Gluten-free, Vegan

1 1/2 C. gluten-free flour (I use a mix of Bob’s Red Mill white rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch)
1/2 tsp. gluten free baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder (I like Rumford’s because it’s aluminum-free)
1/4 tsp. salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed
5 Tbs. coconut oil (or any vegetable oil)
3/4 C. cold water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. chocolate chips (Enjoy Life are gluten, dairy, soy, nut -free).
If walnuts weren’t an issue for me, I would have added 1/2 C. of those as well.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line a 9×9 square cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mash bananas and stir in oil, water, and vanilla until well blended. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour in wet mixture. Stir until just blended. Add in chocolate chips and give it one last toss. Pour into prepared cake sheet.

Bake 40 min, or until toothpick comes out clean.
