Chewy Ginger Bars

Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens! The girls are mighty impressed by these straight up, but the bars would also be a good dessert warmed and topped with vanilla coconut milk ice cream.

2 cups GF flour blend
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar (or 1 1/2 cups brown sugar plus 1/4 cup applesauce)
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan, set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the dry ingredients, set aside.

Combine coconut oil, brown sugar, molasses and vanilla. Beat in eggs. Add the flour mixture and stir until combined. Spread batter into prepared baking pan. Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until center appears set (center will sink slightly). Cool in pan on wire rack. Sift powdered sugar over the top, if desired, and cut into bars to serve.
