Gluten Free Brownies

Filed under: Chocolate,Desserts,Recipes,Uncategorized,Vegetarian — Tags: , , — admin @ 11:18 am

This recipe is adapted to be Gluten Free from the Brownie recipe on the back of a Meijer Chocolate Chips bag.   These were my favorite brownies before going GF, and they remain just as good as the original after removing the wheat flour.  These are great with a tall glass of cold milk, or as a base for an awesome Brownie Hot Fudge Sundae.  Just top with Vanilla Ice Cream, Hot Fudge (We love Sanders!) and whipped cream.   What a treat!

You’ll need:

2 Cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

2/3 Cup Gluten Free Flour  Mix

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Salt

3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum

1/3 Cup Butter, Softened

1/4 Cup packed Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup White Sugar

2 Eggs

1 tsp Vanilla

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter an 8 x 8 baking dish.

2) Melt 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips  in microwave on high power for one minute.  Stir until completely melted.

2) In small bowl, combine 2/3 cup Gluten Free Flour Mix (I use Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose GF Flour), 1/2 tsp Baking Powder, 1/4 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum.

3) In mixing bowl, combine 1/3 cup softened butter, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar.  Beat until fluffy. 

4) Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla to butter mixture.  Beat well.

5) Slowly stir in melted chocolate. Blend.

6) Slowly add flour mixture to chocolate mixture.  Stir until smooth.

7) Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup nuts, if desired.

8 ) Spread batter in prepared pan.

9) Bake for 30-35 minutes.  Cool and dust with powdered sugar, if desired.

10) Cool and cut into squares.
