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.

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.

I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain l...

Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac test...
