A good morning

This is a good recipe for an all-purpose snack or a breakfast bar. My kids call these "cereal bars" and they easily could be modified.

Ingredients
------------
Flour mix: 1 cups sorghum flour, 1 cup chickpea flour, 1/2 cup potato starch, 1/2 cup tapioca flour/starch, 1/2 cup carob powder.
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups water with 1 tsp lemon juice in it.
1 cup brown sugar (Wholesome Sweeteners brand is good)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a baking sheet with Spectrum shortening (actually, I cover sheet with foil, and grease the foil because later, when done, it's easier to remove the bars.)

In a bowl, mix flour, cinnamon and xanthan gum.

In another bowl, mix water, lemon juice, brown sugar, salt and soda.

Stir wet mixture into dry.

Should resemble thick pancake batter but not runny. You should be able to spread it on the sheet with a spatula. If too dry, add water. If too runny, add starch.

Spread dough on cookie sheet. Bake 25-30 minutes. Let cool.

When cool, lift foil off the sheet. Peel the baked square off the foil. Then, put it back on the foil and use a pizza cutter to cut into bars. I freeze half.

Also, you can make this without the carob. Generally, eliminate the carob and add another 1/4 cup chickpea and 1/4 cup tapioca.
