Banana Flax Blondies

Recommended Posts

My daughter and I made this up as we went along today. It was really good!

1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 brown bananas

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup gluten free flour

1/2 cup flax seed meal

1/2 cup cornstarch

pinch of salt

1 tsp xanthan gum

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add bananas and mix well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until moistened. Bake in a 9x9 (or similar) brownie pan on 400F for 25 minutes.

Let cool. Cut into squares.

These really held together well for me and weren't "crummy." If you cut them into 16 squares, each square is 141 calories with 6 grams of fat. So, not very healthy, but at least you got some flax!
