Who Has Gfcfsf Brownie Recipe?

Recommended Posts

A lot of the commercial chocolate I've seen has soy lechitin in it. Has anybody figured out how to make these -- without butter or margarine? I have coconut oil that could be used in place of shortening, but not sure what to do about the chocolate.

Cocoa powder I believe is soy free?

Here's a recipe that needs to be modified for gluten-free:

Vegan Brownies

INGREDIENTS

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (substitute gluten-free flour)

2 cups white sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup water

1 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking pan.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is no longer shiny. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

Enjoy Life has soy free chocolate chips so if you want to do a double chocolate brownie with the chocolate chips folded into the batter.

Here is a link to the best brownie recipe I have had since going gluten-free. It is free of wheat, gluten, dairy, casein, and eggs. I serve it to gluten eaters all the time, and they love it. So you know it is good! To make it soy free, use Enjoy Life chocolate chips.

Use Bob's Red Mill brownie mix - coconut oil instead of butter - then add some Enjoy Life chocolate chips. Sooooo good :)

I don't know why I didn't think of a mix, DUH!

Namaste has a great brownie mix also, you use oil as the fat.

*Pamela's Brownie Mix and gluten-free Pantry Truffle Brownie Mix both have chocolate chunks added tot he batter so they are out if you are eliminating soy lecithin.

If it does not have to be "brownies" exactly, here's something I concocted (through inspiration) last night in the kitchen:

1 cup of pecans (soaked overnight then dried again)

1/2 cup coconut

handful of cried cranberries

handful of raw cocoa nibs

5/6 dates or so

dash salt

dash cayenne pepper (weird, I know)

some agave if you want it sweeter

some nut butter to make it stick together (I used walnut, also good would be pecan, almond, cashew?)

You process this in the food processor until it just sticks together. It needs to stick together in order to roll into balls. You then roll the balls in coconut.

Anyway, I was trying to emulate some kind of Lara bar or something, but less sweet. It ended up being pretty sweet. The cocao nibs are PURE CHOCOLATE, which you may know does not taste good on its own. But with some sweetner, it is tasty and probably way better for you than cooked chocolate.

Good luck.
