I was looking at the recipe for "Ultimate Chocolate Brownies" on the back of a bag of chocolate chips and thought, "I bet these would be easy to make gluten-free." Sure enough, they are awesome. My husband and I actually had one for breakfast this morning with the justification of, "It's like a chocolate donut, really." :)

Here's the recipe:

BROWNIES
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup butter (melted)
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cup flour (I use a flour mix that is 2 parts white rice flour, 2/3 part potato starch, 1/3 part tapioca starch, all sifted together)
1 tsp xanthum gum
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

FROSTING
6 tbs butter
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
1 tsp vanilla

Brownies:
  • Pre-Heat 350 degrees
  • Mix cocoa, baking soda, and 1/3 cup of the butter
  • Add boiling water, Mix
  • Add sugar, eggs, and remaining butter, Mix
  • Add flour, xanthum gum, vanilla, and salt, Mix
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done (if you use one 8" pan and want thick brownies, you probably want to go a little lower/longer on the temp/time)
  • Let cool and then add frosting on top

Frosting:
  • Beat butter
  • Alternate adding in sugar, cocoa, and milk
  • Stir in vanilla

I like your reasoning, "It's like a chocolate donut, really." LOL!

Yep. Works for me. Will definitely try these :)

Proofreader, copy editor, herb gardener and an evolving gluten-free cook.

Had a reaction to wheat, oats, rye, and barley in a lab test done by a homeopathic doctor in 1997. Have been mostly gluten-free since then. Also highly allergic to MSG.

Here's a quote I ran across when researching self-advocacy for children with special needs that I like: "Our subconscious picks up on each positive action we take on our own behalf, lifting the spirit and deepening our self-respect." Kat James
