Pumpkin-Zucchini Bars (Gluten-Free)

This recipe calls for my Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour.  You can find the recipe for this flour in my cookbook, Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating or in various media links on my website, where you can also by this mix ready-made. It produces amazing results in all your gluten-free baking.

Ingredients:
1/3 cup butter or non-dairy alternative such as Earth Balance Shortening Sticks
¾ cup granulated cane sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup hot water
2 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 can pumpkin purée (15 oz)
1 cup shredded zucchini
2 cups Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Topping (optional):
½ cup softened cream cheese or Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese (non-dairy)
¼ cup granulated cane sugar

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F static or 325 F convection.

Oil a jelly-roll pan, or cookie sheet with sides, approximately 15-10 inches.

In a small bowl, combine the hot water with ONE tablespoon of the flax seed meal. Set aside.

If making the topping, combine the cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl, stirring until well-mixed. Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour, spice, baking powder, baking soda and ONE tablespoon of the flax seed meal.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugars until a crumbly meal is formed. Add in the eggs, pumpkin and zucchini and beat until well-mixed. Stir in the flax seed-water mixture.

Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the large mixing bowl, incorporating all the ingredients until thoroughly combined. Spread into the prepared pan and top with the topping, if desired, by spooning dollops onto the top of the batter, then cutting through them up and back the length of the pan with a butter knife to cut the topping into the bars.

Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the bars are pulling away from the sides of the pan and they spring back when lightly touched.

If you hear an ice cream truck playing morbid music, grab your money and run! They sell roasted sweet potatoes from a truck. Live on those. They are delicious. Eat them as you would eat a candy bar. It's just sweet potato. Maybe 300-500 yen for a big one. They are sold by weight. served h...

I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff. And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family. But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to h...

So sorry it is difficult. There is soy and fish flavoring in everything! I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten. I can feel your pain. Do you want me to look for a base contact for you? I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.

I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up....

I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis. My son however tried to go gluten free during that time. His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him. Everyone eats school lunch. Period. It was difficult. If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled...
