These look crazy good, right? Yes, they are gluten free and no one will EVER know it! I easily converted my famous brownie recipe for those who require a gluten free diet. Let me tell you, one of the things I detest about gluten free baked goods….crumbly and dry. Yuck, I feel like every time I try a GF dessert from a store, bakery, or restaurant I am eating chalk.

I feel EVERYONE on EVERY diet deserves the right to a good ooey-gooey dessert. And these brownies will do just the trick.

Not much explanation needed for this beauty, chocolate, warm, ooey-gooey brownies that are equivalent to the ones baked with flour! I hope y’all enjoy these. My family did and truly couldn’t believe these were gluten free 🙂

 

Let’s start baking…

 

 

Gluten Free Ooey-Gooey Brownies

Yields: 12-20 pieces (depending on how generous your feeling that day)

 

 

Ingredients:

 

1 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 cups granulated sugar

2/3 cup cocoa powder

4 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract (McCormicks is GF)

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup of Gluten Free All purpose flour (I used King Arthur’s for this recipe)

1/2 tsp of xanthan gum (this is your binder and acts like gluten in flour)

Pam nonstick original spray (this too is GF)

Directions:

 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil and spray with Pam nonstick original spray. Set aside.

2. In a large microwavable bowl, melt butter and then add sugar.

5. Mix in xanthan gum, followed by gluten free all purpose.

6. Batter will be thick, pour and spread evenly into the prepared pan.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes. You want them to be slightly gooey, so I pull mine out at 28 minutes. This way the edges satisfy those who like them more cooked and then the center is perfect for me 🙂

8. Optional to dust with powdered sugar, after they have cooled mostly.
