    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    For one 9in x 13in pans worth:

    ¾ cup butter or margarine
    ¾ cup cocoa powder
    2 ¼ cup sugar
    4 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 1/3 cup gluten-free flour (used Bette Hagmans mix plus Xanthan Gum)
    1 cup chopped nuts (if desired)
    ½ teaspoon baking powder
    ¼ teaspoon salt

    Preheat oven to 325F Grease (not oil) and lightly cocoa (instead of flour) 9x13 pan. In large sauce pan, melt margarine/butter with cocoa over low heat, stirring constantly (actually, I just put the cocoa and butter in a bowl, stick it in the microwave for a couple of minutes, until the butter is melted. Stir with a fork until its mostly smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Blend in sugar. Beat in eggs, one a time. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spread in prepared pan.

    Bake at 325F and check after 20-25 minutes (I use a stoneware pan and it takes about 10 minutes longer than in a metal pan). I consider them done when whatever is stuck in the middle to check for doneness (toothpick, butter-knife, whatevers handy) comes up a bit moist, but not with a great deal of chocolate adhering to it. Im aiming for a slightly gooey middle and somewhat cake-like edges. Its safe to say that they will not be done before 20 minutes unless your oven really cooks on the hot side.

    These were just fabulous! I would use a bit less sugar though, perhaps 2 cups. Overall, the taste was delicious, the texture was great, and my family could barely tell the difference! Thanks so much for this recipe!

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    This recipe comes to us from “Fiddle-Faddle” in the Gluten-Free Forum. I was actually trying to make peanut butter cookies, but I was running out of time, so I dumped the batter into a greased 9” x 13” pan and baked them for 25 minutes at 350F, and they were SO GOOD!
    Ingredients:
    And its the same old peanut butter cookie batter we all use:
    2 cups peanut butter
    2 cups sugar
    4 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    A couple of glugs of molasses (I like the flavor and texture)
    Directions:
    Mix, dump, bake, devour! Theyre particularly good with chocolate frosting, or chocolate chips mixed in the batter, or both.
    Note: I like...
