The yummiest GF brownies!!

Last fall, I was at my son's regional band competition.  At the snack table there was a plate of Gluten Free Brownies, so I bought one for $.50 to try it!  YUM!  I was amazed how good they were, so I asked for the recipe.  Here it is, and included is a basic baking mix.

Gluten Free Buttermilk Baking Mix
2 C fine white rice flour (or Bean Flour Blend or brown rice flour (which I used))
2/3 C tapioca flour
1 tbsp sugar (or add 1 tbsp to brown sugar)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp Xanthan
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 C powdered buttermilk
Mix and store in airtight conainer.  Makes approx. 3 cups.

Delicious GF Brownies!
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 (12 oz.) sticks butter
2 C sugar (brown for lower glycemic)
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1 C buttermilk baking mix
In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and cocoa squares.  Microwave on high for 2 min.  (I used the stove on a very low setting until they were both melted.)  Mix until chocolate and butter are melted. Mix in sugar and add the vanilla and eggs. Finally add the baking mix and stir well. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350o for 25 minutes. Enjoy!!

  1. Xanthan is expensive, approx. $14 per 8 oz. (Bob's Red Mill), but as you can see from the recipe, it needs very little. It calls for 1/6 of a teaspoon for one large (9x13 size) batch of brownies. It is a thickener. Something else may work as well.
