Food - Wheatless Brownies 6

They are a bit crumbly, but all-in-all I’m not too unhappy with these.  This is a nifty recipe I’ve used for quite awhile.  I will keep tweaking it with different flours until it resembles regular fudgy brownies but without the wheat.  I thought this would be a good one to try because brownies don’t need the fluffiness wheat flour lends.  The biggest mistake here was cutting the sugar.  These are good, but fully sweet ones would have been better.  Oh well, it was an experiment.  Feel free to use the recipe as is, it is great.  If you try changing ingredients and you get great results without wheat please let me know!!

BROWNIES MADE SIMPLE (my wheatless version in parenthesis)

1 stick butter (or 1/2 C. good farm lard, coconut oil or a combination)
4 tbsp. cocoa (or use half cocoa and half carob)
1 c. sugar (or pulverized dates, or date sugar, here I used 3/4 C. but I wouldn’t recommend cutting it down)
2 eggs
3/4 c. flour (or a combo of corn, coconut, and millet flours)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. nuts

Yum, this looks good. I wonder if I can successfully make a vegan version. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll give it a go. Celeste 🙂

Good luck with a vegan version! These are tasty, just a bit dry. Someone else recommended to me to add mashed black beans. I might try that for the moisture, or maybe chopped zucchini. Let me know how yours turn out!
