If you are looking for a gluten free brownie that is a little healthier than your normal brownies these are for you.
A few weeks ago I posted this picture on Facebook along with this,
“Asked my kids if they wanted to try a new flourless brownie recipe I tried today. I guess this means it was good. 🙂 I won’t tell them it was actually a pretty healthy brownie.”
By the looks of the picture you can tell they approved. They had no idea that secret ingredient in these brownies was quinoa. Yes, I eventually told them, but not until the pan was almost gone.
Now I will say these are a healthier type brownie. If you are expecting a super rich and fudgy brownie, these are not them. These are really good and I will be making these again and often, but they do have a slightly healthy taste.
