Brownies are in the Air by Allison (Gluten-Free Brownies that is…..)

It is Valentines week, you like how I’ve extended the holiday to the whole week now?! Well I like to celebrate, what can I say? Not only is love in the air but brownies can be too! Brownies are just classic. My friend M and I used to make brownies on Friday nights out of box (how illegal I know) at her apartment back in college on 21st street. This decadent treat was usually accompanied by Mexican food beforehand and a movie afterwards. Sometimes when we felt a little dangerous, we added a generous scoop of  Haagen Daz coffee ice cream to the top of our brownies (if we found it on sale of course). These brownies are quick to put together and ready in a flash and delicious as ever let me tell you! Brownies out of a box are good in a pinch, but not as good as homemade brownies! This recipe makes a really yummy fudgy brownie. My friend Nikki made these for me about a year ago and it was the first time I had eaten homemade brownies since going gluten-free and they tasted like a million bucks then and they still do now! Thank you Nikki for sharing this recipe with me!




Gluten-Free Brownies by Allison
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup gluten-free flour (I use Schar Mix C gluten-free flour blend)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional – need to make sure the chocolate is gluten-free)
Mix eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Add in the remaining dry ingredients and mix until combined. Pour in a greased 9″ by 9″ pan and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 18 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes clean. Enjoy!
Schar Gluten-Free flour can be purchased at the following places in Prague: selected Billa grocery stores, Na Zlate Krizovatce (Prague’s Gluten-Free Restaurant) and the Diana stores (one near Billa Labut).
