Please note that I originally created this recipe with Enjoy Life All-Purpose Flour Blend. It has been discontinued. The recipe will likely work well with other blends, but I haven't tested them all!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 to 16 bars
  • 1¼ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour blend
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder (1/2 teaspoon above 3000 feet)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅜ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar (finely ground in a spice grinder; can sub brown sugar)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted (can sub grapeseed, canola, or rice bran oil)
  • ¼ cup mashed banana (see post notes above for other options)
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ to ⅔ cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and grease and flour an 8x8-inch baking dish, or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together the flour mix, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
  3. In a mixing bowl, blend the maple, sugar, oil, banana, and vanilla with a hand mixer. Add the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish and even it out.
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly golden and pulling away from the edges.
  6. Let cool completely before cutting.
