  3. In a blender, combine remaining ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
  4. Add liquid ingredients to dry and stir to incorporate. Pour batter into loaf pan and spread evenly.
  5. Baking for 35 minutes or until the batter is slightly firm to touch and a toothpick comes out mostly clean but with a bit of moisture. Allow to cool at least 30 minutes before slicing.

  1. Place sugar and starch in a high speed blender and blend until a powdered texture forms, only 10-15 seconds. You can mix it up and reblend to get all of the particles.
  2. Take half of your powdered sugar and mix with 1 tablespoon almond milk or water plus zest. Drizzle generously on bars.
