Recipe Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Brownies

5 oz Dark chocolate
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
6 tbsp Splenda
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup water

Recipe Directions for Dark Chocolate Brownies

  1. 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, if desired

  2. 1/2 cup extra semi-sweet chocolate chips for the top, if desired

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8-inch square baking pan.

  4. Using the microwave, melt the dark chocolate and butter in a large (microwave safe) measuring cup. Stir together to combine. Set aside.

  5. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs on medium high till frothy. Add the splenda and beat until the mixture is smooth.

  6. Add the melted chocolate mixture into the egg-splenda mixture a little at a time - incorporate it slowly- and beat well for a good minute. The chocolate will look smooth and glossy.

  7. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond meal, rice flour, fine sea salt and baking soda; whisk together. Add the dry flour mix into the chocolate mixture and beat well for a minute. Add the vanilla, beat another half a minute or so.

  8. You now have your brownie batter.

  9. If you are adding nuts, stir in the nuts by hand and spread the batter into the prepared baking pan.

  10. Layer the semi-sweet chips all over the top of the batter and press them in slightly, if adding.

  11. Bake in the center of a preheated 350 degree F oven for 33 to 35 minutes, or until the brownies are set. Don't overcook. (Err on the side of gooey, if you must- that's what I do; I find gluten-free brownies taste better slightly undercooked and soft in the middle than over-cooked and crumbly.)

  12. Cool on a wire rack; and remove the brownies from the pan by gripping the foil edges. Chill before cutting.
