Gluten-Free Brownies

Who doesn’t love a good brownie?  There are two types of brownies, ooey gooey brownies, and cake like brownies.  I love them both.  But this whole-grain, gluten-free recipe is the latter, a cake like brownie.

It’s perfect for a light, whole-grain treat when the chocolate urge hits.  Or top with this cream cheese icing or chocolate buttercream frosting for the ultimate indulgence.

It’s okay, go back for seconds.  These whole-grain brownies are packed full of fiber, manganese, folate, and B-6.

These are sure to be a hit with children, and great for a pot luck, just double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 inch pan.

While the brownies are still warm, serve topped with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and chopped nuts for a delicious brownie sundae.

*Don’t have a double boiler?  That’s okay, you can make your own.  You will need two pots, one larger than the other.  Fill the larger pot with water, and set the smaller pot into the larger one, making sure the water sets just below the smaller pot.  Turn the heat on medium high.  As the water heats up it will warm the smaller pot and melt the chocolate, coconut oil, and honey gradually as not to burn it.

  1. I have never made black bean flour. How did you do that? Did you grind the beans dry and unsoaked?

  2. Jennifer, yes I ground dry, unsoaked black beans into a flour using the wondermill!
