Easy Gluten Free Brownies From Scratch

Easy Gluten Free Brownies From Scratch

I am "anit-box-cake", in my opinion anything and everything made from scratch tastes better and is better for you.  To me - boxed brownie mixes taste as if they've added some plastic extract or cardboard fibers into the tastes very "chemically." 

This recipe that I'm sharing with you today is another one of my Gluten Free creations and to be honest with you I prefer these brownies to my other brownie recipe that uses wheat flour.  Somehow the rice flour adds to the wonderful cocoa flavor.

1/2 cup butter (melted and slightly cooled)                           Printable Recipe
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup rice flour (I used brown rice flour but white rice flour works well also)
1/3 cup (heaping) cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup walnuts (chopped) (Pecans may be substituted or you may also omit if you prefer)
1 tablespoon cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Melt the butter and allow it to cool for about 5 minutes.  In a large mixing bowl stir the eggs and sugar together vigorously (I stir by hand with a wooden spoon but you may use an electric mixer if you prefer).  Add in the butter, cream and vanilla extract - mix until combined.  Now add in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt - stir until dry ingredients are fully blended into the wet ingredients.  Finally, stir in the chopped nuts.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven  for 20 to 25 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).

Allow to cool and dust with powdered sugar. 
Cut into squares & ENJOY!

  5. Look yummy! I am printing this off for my mom...she just found out she was GI after years of struggling with side effects. Her iron/blood got so low she started having chest pains!

  6. Great recipe. My son has so many allergies gluten being one of them. I found your site through Blogging Buddies on Etsy. I am a follower and would love for you to visit and follow me!

  7. Love the simple look of the crackers recipe and the brownies. Always looking and always creating my own too... My first was a gluten-free sloppy Joe casserole... :) And; I do feel so much better gluten-free. I went gluten-free last Summer after a lifetime of "stomach issues" that went undiagnosed appropriately. My longtime blood pressure, allergies, and fluid retention problems are all much better already.

    Nice to find you here. :)

Thank You.
