Gluten Free Fudgy Almond Brownies

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Wow, Gluten Free Fudgy Almond Brownies are breathtaking. This is a fantastic healthier brownie recipe for those of you who are trying to watch your sugar and gluten. I started with my regular brownie recipe, but used coconut sugar instead of the regular sugar and gluten free flour instead of regular flour. I added sliced almonds, almond extract and a package of carob-flavored healthy chocolate chips without all the preservatives in the batter and on top before baking. On top of that I used 90% dark chocolate that made these brownies so chocolaty they were to die for! These healthier brownies turned out way better than my expectations. They were so thick and fudgy I wanted to eat the whole pan at once! I almost did…..

Back in September, I decided to try to make a dessert that was enjoyable, yet without cane sugar or flour. I was also trying to use more natural ingredients so I found a package of chocolate chips at Sprouts that didn’t have all the preservatives and bad ingredients most chocolate chips have. These brownies are fudgy, dense and thick just the way you want brownies to be. They have plenty of sweetness from the coconut sugar (which is almost like working with brown sugar or sucanat), and plenty of crunch from the chocolate chips and sliced almonds.

All I can say is Gluten Free Fudgy Almond Brownies turned out spectacularly. They were gone in three days and I ate the whole pan. Yes, gluttony describes the situation accurately. 🙁 I really couldn’t stay out of them. I had a handful with lunch, another handful for dinner, a handful for snacks. You get the picture. Yes, they are and were extremely addictive.

If you’re looking for an alternative to regular brownies and want a healthier version, this one is sensational. Give Gluten Free Fudgy Almond Brownies a try the next time you have sugar cravings. You’ll never be able to tell they’re made with healthier ingredients or that they’re gluten free. They’re amazing.
