Best Browines – gluten-free!

These brownies are simply delightful.  I received this recipe from my pre-school and converted it for my gluten-free needs.  They are so easy to make that I’ll never go back to boxed brownies!

Best Brownies

1/2 cup butter/margarine melted

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract (gluten-free)

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour (I use Namaste gluten-free flour)

1/3 cup Cocoa powder

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9″ square pan.  Stir butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl (I use a fork and hand mix).  Add eggs, beat well.  Stir flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.  Gradually add to egg mixture (I never do this separately. I just add it all to the bowl).  Beat until well blended.  Spread in pan.  I always sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips… or two, to the top of the batter.  It makes the brownies extra moist and gooey!  Bake 20-25  minutes for regular flour.  It usually takes more like  25-30 minutes in my oven with the gluten-free flour.  Double recipe for 9×13 pan and expect a little extra baking time.  I bake a double batch for 25-30 minutes and keep an eye on them after that until a tooth pick comes out clean. 

Sometimes when the brownies have cooled, I frost them as well.  Depending on how indulgent I’m feeling.

Happy Baking!
