For cookie swaps or family get togethers, bake these Gluten-Free Brownies for guests with gluten allergies.
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mist a 12-cup muffin tin and 4 cups of a 6-cup tin with gluten-free cooking spray.
In a bowl, whisk rice flour, almond meal, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Place chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl; set over a pan of simmering water. Let stand until chocolate and butter have melted, stirring often. Remove from heat; whisk in cocoa.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar on medium speed until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Slowly add chocolate mixture; beat on low for 1 minute. Beat in flour mixture.
Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick stuck into middle of a brownie comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Let cool in pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then remove to rack to cool completely.
Fabulous brownie that doesn't give itself away as a gluten free snack! I am gluten intolerant and wanted to be able to make something both me and my husband could enjoy. This did it! I happened to have almond flour instead of almond meal and it worked well.
Fantastic!! I have made these four times since my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease five weeks ago - they single-handedly convinced him that he could still enjoy the foods he loved. They are so good that our boys, who are celiac-free, beg for them. Thanks so much for this recipe - it helped our family through a tough transition.
