Black-Bottom Banana Bars (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to use from Joy Mendez.

½ cup butter or margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
1 ½ cups GF flour mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
¼ cup baking cocoa
(optional: ½ cup chocolate chips added to the dark batter--I did this and the result is delicious)

You could also add chopped pecans...will do this next time! You could also dust with powdered sugar after they cool.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract; beat until thoroughly combined. Blend in the bananas.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide batter in half. Add cocoa to half; spread into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Spoon remaining batter on top and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes or until the bars test done.

Yields about 2 ½to 3 dozen bars.

These black-bottom banana bars are to die for! I put nuts in the entire batter, then split it and put chocolate chips in the portion with cocoa. They are delicious.

This was really good. My kids loved it! I would have to say though that it's not like bars at all. Mine came out exactly like a cake. Still tasty though!

This is great. I doubled the cocoa powder and put it in all of it. I used ground flax meal instead of egg and coconut oil instead of butter to make it vegan. I added coconut flakes with the pecans. It was a huge hit.
