In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together mashed banana, palm sugar, oil, milk, eggs and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour blend, baking soda, cinnamon, xanthan gum and salt. Dump dry ingredients onto wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in carob chips.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes until snack cake is firm and a toothpick tests clean. Let cool completely in baking pan on a wire rack before slicing. Freeze individual pieces for an easy snack for lunches, enjoy with a cup of afternoon tea or serve as a breakfast cake.
