Gluten Free Chewy Cake Bars

I have no idea why it is called chewy cake, it is more like a cookie bar than anything else. Nevertheless, my husband has  been hinting for me to make these bars for awhile now and I finally gave in, LOL.

These bars are really for the sweet-tooth-a-holic…. it has one pound of brown sugar in them and are so good you can’t just eat one and you’ll probably be eating the crumbs up as well.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking pan very well.

In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients until well combined. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan and bake for 35-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted through the middle comes out clean. Cool the cake completely in the pan before cutting it into squares.
