Recipe

Doubly delicious, these moist, fudgy brownies appeal to the eye as well as the taste of every chocoholic!

Yield: Makes 16 brownies

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) yellow pea flour
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) potato starch
  • 1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) GF baking powder
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) xanthan gum
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  • ½ cup (125 mL) chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup (125 mL) shortening
  • 2 oz (60 g) unsweetened chocolate
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

Glaze (optional):

  • 2 tsp (10 mL) shortening
  • 2 oz (60 g) white chocolate

Equipment:

  • 8-inch (2 L) square pan, lightly greased

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

1. In a large bowl or plastic bag, combine yellow pea flour, potato starch, brown sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and walnuts. Mix well and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, microwave shortening and chocolate on Medium for 3 minutes or until partially melted in a saucepan over hot water. Stir until melted. Add eggs, one at a time, blending after each. Stir in vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients, stirring until combined. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Let stand for 30 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center still has a little moist crumb adhering to it. Let cool for 15 minutes on rack. Meanwhile, prepare glaze, if desired.

3. Glaze: In a small bowl, over hot water, partially melt the shortening and chocolate. Remove from heat and continue stirring until completely melted. Spread on warm brownies. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Variation: Substitute an equal amount of whole bean flour for yellow pea.

Notes

One individually wrapped square of baking chocolate is 1 oz (30 g).

Keep extra brownies in the freezer. Crumb them and use as a base for cheesecake or cube them for a chocolate trifle.
