Toffee Bars

Recipe from Mama Me Gluten Free (dot) com

Projected prep time: 10 minutes; Projected bake time: 15-20 minutes



4 oz. (whole stick) salted butter

4 oz. dark brown sugar

1 large egg yolk

2 oz. gluten-free flour blend (I used blend of millet & tapioca and a blend of millet & brown rice the other time - both were good)

1 tsp. ground chia seeds (I useĀ Salba brand)

2 oz. certified gluten-free rolled oats


3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 oz. butter

2 oz. chopped pecans (or walnuts - I like pecans better)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 7x11 baking pan.

Cream butter, sugar and egg yolk together until smooth. Mix in flour and oats. Spread mixture in pan, pressing down to even the surface.

Bake about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on oven, or until golden brown. Let cool about 10 minutes.

Add chocolate chips and butter into a small bowl and microwave 30 seconds, stir and then microwave a few more seconds until you can stir it smooth. Alternately, heat over a bowl of hot water until it can be stirred smooth. Gently spread chocolate over bars. Top with pecans (or walnuts).

While warm, cut into bars but leave in pan until cool. Cool completely before serving.
