I recently made a gluten free version of one of my favorite desserts and knew I had to share it with you. This is a dessert I made many times before going gluten free and I can’t believe it took me so long to make it gluten free.
You may have noticed that I have a lot of favorite desserts. I don’t have a problem admitting that I do indeed love desserts. I love make them and I love to eat them. I especially love them when chocolate is involved!
Now I will also admit that these brownies are a treat. A totally unhealthy, but utterly delicious gluten free treat. These are rich, so you can easily cut them small. And these are one of those desserts that no one would know was gluten free, so they are perfect to serve guests or take to a potluck type dinner.
