Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (Congo bars)

If you don't need the GF version, Bakerella has a fabulous one here. But, if you need a fabulous, you'd never-know-they-were-gluten-free recipe, you've come to the right place.


(I cut them whilst they were warm because it is so very, very impossible to wait... Hence the gooey goodness.)

Without further introduction, from the pantry you'll need to fetch:

1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup sorghum flour
3/4 cup tapioca starch or potato starch
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp guar gum or xanthan gum
2 cups brown sugar
2/3 cup coconut oil or butter, softened
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup nuts of choice. I've used peanuts, walnuts and cashews alternately.

Mix brown sugar, oil/butter and eggs with mixer. Add in remaining ingredients and mix or stir by hand. Spread into a 9x13 greased pan and bake at 350 for about 30 minute until the batter is set and nicely golden brown. If you resist the urge to dig right in, then do. If not, then a nice cold glass of farm milk is a fine accompaniment.
