Gluten-Free Brownie Success!

Good Evening friends!

Hope everyone is out and having a great Friday night! I am staying in tonight to go to bed early for a 6:30 am shift at work followed by the WARRIOR DASH!

My best friend Jenna and I are running this tomorrow and it’s going to be insane! I am super excited but also a bit nervous (typical of me), I just hope I don’t fall while jumping across the fire!! I am really hoping to take some pictures but not sure how just yet. I don’t want to risk my camera in this muddy and messy extreme event!

Anyways, since I was home tonight, and carbo loading (warriors need their energy) I decided to take a try at gluten-free baking. Since going GF a few months ago, I have only baked from boxed mixes, which just really isn’t my thing. I haaate giving my baking credit to other people, no offense Betty. So I took a little help and inspiration from Mama Pea and got my hands dirty chocolaty!

Gluten-Free Fudge-y Pudge-free Brownies

Inspired by Mama Pea’s Double Chocolate-Single Chin Brownies

Ingredients:

1/4 cup “Sweet” White Sorghum Flour

1/2 cup Brown Rice Flour

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 egg

1/2 cup natural cane sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 vegan chocolate chips (to keep it lactose free)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

1) Measure out the dry ingredients and add them to a big mixing bowl (flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt)

2) Using a glass measuring cup, measure 1 cup of applesauce.

3) Add the sugar, vanilla, and egg; mix to combine.

4) Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until lumps are gone and a smooth mixture forms.

5) Fold in the chocolate chips.

6) Add the mixture to an 8×8 that’s coated in cooking spray

7) Bake for 22-26 minutes.

Allow them to cool before you start scoring them and trying to remove them (who would do that?).

Yummy, ooey, and oh so gooey :) There is not a hint of that gritty-GF taste, ohh no!

Hopefully these last until after the warrior dash for a celebratory treat…I can’t make any promises :)

Goodnight!

lots of love,

Em
