    Black-Bottom Banana Bars (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    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 gluten-free 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 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.
