Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • cup vegan butter*, melted I use Earth Balance
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or honey if not vegan)
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar 57 g
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract I use Rodelle
  • teaspoon almond extract optional
  • 1 ½ cups almond flour, packed (not almond meal) 223 g
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour, packed 31 g
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

Vanilla Frosting

Optional

  • sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, add cornstarch and water. Whisk to combine. Add melted butter, agave, cane sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Whisk again to incorporate. 
  • Add almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Using an electric mixer, mix on medium speed until dough starts to form, about a minute. If the dough is not sticking together, you may need to use your hands to press together and incorporate into one big ball of dough.
  • Transfer dough to prepared pan. 
  • Using an extra piece of parchment paper, flatten dough into an even layer, making sure all corners are filled. 
  • Bake for 14-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack. 
  • While bars are cooling, rinse out and dry bowl, and add frosting ingredients. Using electric mixer again, beat until frosting becomes smooth. 
  • When ready to frost, gently lift bars out of pan using parchment flaps and place on a cutting board. Using a spatula, frost bars and add sprinkles if desired. Cut into large bars or bite-sized squares. 
  • Store in an airtight container.
