Quick, Easy Gluten Free Brownies



This is a great simple and easy brownie recipe which I came across. They turn out chewy, very chocolatey and delicious. My wheat eating husband said it was the best brownie he'd ever eaten!

I like the fact it's so simple and only uses corn starch.

So here is the recipe:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or dark chocolate pieces (60-70%)
  • 1/2 cup macademia nuts (optional)

    Method:

    Preheat oven to 350 F. and lightly grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.

    In saucepan, melt butter and add cocoa powder. Whisk.

    Mix in the brown sugar, eggs and vanilla to butter/cocoa mixture.

    Add the corn starch and salt and mix well.

    Stir in chocolate chips or dark chocolate pieces.

    Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Until toothpick comes out clean.

    Allow brownies ample time to cool and set before serving.

They can be stored in the freezer and thawed before serving.
