Pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, pumpkin carving, and chai tea are just a few of the fall activities and treats we have been dying to get to. To kick off this fall season, we made Gluten-Free Coffee Cake Bars that you can pair with your morning, afternoon, and evening coffee.
These bars look and tasted so delicious, so we won’t waste any more time and get right into the recipe.
There are two parts to this recipe. Part one results in making the main mixture and from that we’ll also get the topping for the cake bars. Part two of the recipe will turn the mixture into batter and that’s when the fun stuff happens! Let’s get started!Jump to Recipe
Pour gluten-free flour, SweetenFX, and brown sugar into a large mixing bowl. Stir using a whisk to make sure that everything is evenly mixed in.
Next, pour the salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and Select Tea chocolate flavored coffee grounds into the bowl. Mix them in with the flour, sweetener, and sugar. You could just pour everything in together and not do this in separate parts, but we found that this helps even out the flour, sugar, and other ingredients evenly.
Once mixed, pour in vegetable oil. WARNING: It’s going to get really clumpy, so if you have a blender whisk, we recommend you use that to mix the oil in instead of a regular whisk. Reserve ½ of a cup of the mixture. This will be the topping of the cake bars and the rest of the mixture will become the batter.
You’re now ready to move onto PART TWO!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray your 9×13 pan with a nonstick spray.
Add baking powder, baking soda, an egg, cream of tartar, and the rest of the cinnamon to the mixture. Now… MIX, MIX, and MIX!
Pour the mixture into your pan and spread it evenly so that the mixture reaches each corner of the pan. Sprinkle the topping you set aside earlier across the mixture evenly.
Put the pan into the oven and bake for 25 minutes!
You now have your Gluten-Free Coffee Cake Bars! WOOHOO You did it! Enjoy these crumbly goodies with any type of coffee whether it be a latte, iced, espresso, you name it. Or you could just eat them by themselves. No shame in that either!
