Gluten Free Chocolate Snack 'n Cake

 Here is a recipe you are going to want to keep handy I think.  It's delicious and simple!
The texture of this simple little cake is so soft and tender. and it has just the right amount of chocolate.

If you count weight watcher points, you are looking at 6.5 points per serving.

You can make this recipe with regular flour or gluten free, eggs or any egg replacer, and regular brown sugar or use date sugar like I did.  If you use regular all purpose flour leave out the xanthan gum.

Gluten Free Chocolate Snack 'n Cake                 Serves 9
3 ripe bananas - medium size, not super huge.
3/4 cup date sugar, brown sugar is fine too.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 egg, or egg replacer. I used EnerG Egg Replaceer.
1 cup gluten free flour baking mix. I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour.
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, I used Enjoy LIfe Allergy Friendly Mini Chocolate Chips.
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8"x 8" pan with a non-stick spray.
Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and mix well. Add applesauce, vanilla, and egg or egg replacer. Mix well.

In a small mixing bowl add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt. Mix well.
Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan.  Top with 1/4 cup of chocolate chips.
Bake for 28-30 minutes.

Serve at room temperature…unless you are like me and can't wait and dig right in!!
