TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Are you on a gluten-free diet but still craving a sweet treat? The “Dessert Diva” stopped by the WFLA studios and helped Gayle and Evan bake a delicious, gluten-free chocolate treat.
GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIES
5 tbls. unsalted butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or bittersweet chocolate)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup gluten-free flour (preferably 1 to 1 gluten-free baking flour or Almond Flour)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
Powdered sugar for dusting or chocolate topping
Preheat oven to 375
Line a 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper (leave some overhang to make it easier to pull out of pan)
In a small/medium saucepan, over low heat, slowly melt butter and chocolate chips. Stir until smooth, take off heat, and set aside.
In a small bowl, lightly whisk eggs, stir in brown sugar and vanilla.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and salt.
Stir egg/sugar mixture into slightly cooled butter and chocolate. Mix until well combined. Fold this mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until smooth.
Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top is just starting to crack. Take out of the oven, cool completely, dust with powdered sugar. Pull out of the pan, cut into squares. ENJOY!
NOTES: If you want it with extra chocolate, melt 1/3 cup chocolate chips in the microwave slowly (30-40 seconds), add 1 tsp coconut oil, stir until smooth, pour over brownies, let sit before cutting. Top with some coarse salt if desired.
