Paleo Gingerbread Bars

Okay, we’re on a roll with the treats.  Really, we usually don’t eat this much sugary type things, but we’ve been doing some experimenting lately because a few people at church are gluten free and paleo, so we like to nurture by brings treats for coffee hour.  Originally, this was meant to be a snickerdoodle brownie type cookie bar thing.  Well, the coconut sugar gives it that sort of molasses type of taste to it, so I added some ginger and I’ll be, it tastes just like gingerbread.  Amazingly, it really does.  I think this is the cakiest (is that a word?) type of cake type thing that I’ve made grain free.  Anyway, it is very tasty with a cup of coffee. Here’s the recipe:
