gluten free brownies 2 (800x450)

I can’t resist brownies and I feel terrible when someone who also finds brownies irresistible can’t partake. My sister-in-law loves brownies too and has gluten intolerance so when I found this recipe I immediately thought of her. This recipe is wonderful because it doesn’t require any specialty ingredients but are so delicious that no one will care that they are gluten free except for my sister-in-law.

Gluten Free Fudge Brownies

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

In a large microwavable bowl, heat the butter and chocolate in the microwave for 30-second increments stirring between until melted. Stir the sugar and vanilla into the butter/chocolate mixture.

These are very fudgy and chocolaty brownies. A cold glass of milk is definitely required.
