Cocoa Brownies

browniesMy girlfriend made these brownies the other night.  It is so nice to have friends that are also living the gluten-free lifestyle!  You know that you can go to their house and eat without getting sick.  It is even better when these gluten-free friends like to bake!  Enjoy…


½ cup (1 stick) Earth Balance margarine
½ cup cocoa powder
1 cup  Sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. gluten free vanilla
½ C Bob’s Red Mill all purpose flour (or other GF baking flour blend)
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x8x2 pan (or a 9 x 12 pan if doubling recipe) or 12 muffin tins.  (I usually line the pan with parchment paper so that I can easily lift out the brownies and slice them when they are done!)

Melt butter in a sauce pan or in a 1 quart container in the microwave.  Remove from heat.  Add cocoa until blended, then add sugar and mix well.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Stir in vanilla, flour, salt & xanthan gum – do not overmix.  Bake 25-30 minutes (less if using muffin tins).  Cool and serve.
