  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients. (This step is important, especially with gluten free flour. Otherwise you’ll have lumps!)
  3. Add the organic canola oil, vanilla, vinegar and water. Mix together by hand, and don’t overmix. Stir in the dairy free chocolate chips.
  4. Pour into an 8 inch square Pyrex dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 26-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  5. Dust the top with confectioner’s sugar once cool.

Recipe Notes

I have tried this with Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, King Arthur Gluten Free Multi Purpose Flour, and Enjoy Life Foods All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour.

You can use this to make cupcakes - reduce the baking time to about 13-15 minutes. Makes about 12 cupcakes.
