Co-Co-Mo Bars

Kari's Co-Co-Mo Bars (24 bars)

1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup oats
3/4 cup turbinado sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
3 Tbsp water
1 cup chocolate soymilk
1 tsp vanilla
4 oz unsweetened applesauce (1 individual-size container)
1/2 cup brewed coffee

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.

In small bowl combine flax meal with water; set aside.

In large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, rice flour, coconut flour, wheat germ, oats, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.

In another bowl combine flax mixture, applesauce, chocolate soymilk, vanilla, and coffee.

Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir well to combine until moistened. Spread batter in prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.

Cool on wire rack and cut into bars.

These bars have a brownie-like texture and a mild chocolate flavor. For a stronger chocolate flavor, you can add more cocoa. You could also add chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts, or you can sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips over cake while hot from oven; then when they melt, spread over cake. Cool and cut.
