Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 bars


  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, melted (6 ounces; 170 grams)
  • 1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar (9 ounces; 255 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour (6 ounces; 170 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, optional (6 ounces; 170 grams)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8x2 pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line with parchment paper or foil. 

  2. Stir together melted butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl until smooth. Add the gluten-free flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until a thick batter forms. Add chocolate chips, if using. 

  3. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake until set, about 25 minutes. A cake tester inserted into the center of the pan should come out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.
