Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place a piece of parchment paper in an 8 inch square baking dish so that it hangs over both sides.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon.
  3. Add the melted vegan buttery spread, unsweetened applesauce, and non-dairy milk. Stir until smooth.

  4. Stir in the dairy free chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, and smooth it out with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 24-29 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  7. Allow the bars to cool before slicing with a sharp knife.

Recipe Notes

Store leftover bars in an airtight container for up to five days.

You can freeze these - wrap each bar in waxed paper, then store in a ziploc freezer bag. They should stay fresh in the freezer for about 3 months.

Use any kind of chocolate chips you like - dark chocolate, chocolate chunks, or white chocolate chips will all work well.
