  • 1 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp. Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Flour
  • 1/2 cup Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp ginger spice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp all spice

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/4 cup melted dairy free Earth Balance Butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 18 oz container of cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

* For dairy free Frosting swap out the regular cream cheese for ” Wayfare ” dairy free cream cheese.


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Line an 8 x 8 glass baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl cream your egg and sugar together for approximately 2 minutes until fluffy and light in color.
  • Next add in your butter, vanilla, and molasses. Blend for one minute. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine your flour, gf oats, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Mix together.
  • Next slowly pour flour mixture into the wet mixture. Mix with a spatula just until combined.
  • Spread mixture into your pan and bake for 25 minutes. Cover with foil and then bake an additional 15  minutes ( give or take a few ) Oven temperatures vary so keep a close eye out on it.. check with a toothpick for doneness.
  • While the bars are cooking start your cream cheese frosting.
  • In a large bowl blend your butter, vanilla, and cream cheese.
  • Slowly add in your powdered sugar… Mixing and scraping drown the sides of the bowl between each addition.
  • Cover and refrigerate until bars are done baking and cooling.
  • Once bars have cooled spread your frosting over the top of your bars and top with some festive sprinkles.

Enjoy 😊🎄


Keep in mind that oven temperatures vary … so I highly stress to keep an eye out on them and check with a toothpick.
