Gluten Free Brownies

My first attempt at GF brownies!!

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar (I used *sucanat sugar)
2 eggs (I used *flax seed subsitute)
3/4 cups rice flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 t salt
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t xanthan gum

*Sucanat sugar is dried sugar cane juice that is much healthier to use when baking versus white, refined and processed sugar. Sucanat has a smaller proportion of sucrose, fewer calories and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Info from HERE

* 1 T ground Flax + 3 T water = wonderful egg substitute! I use it all the time =)

  • Preheat to 350~ grease a 9 in square pan
  • Mix all ingredients together
  • Spread into pan
  • Bake for 30-35 min

They are a little thin....I think I used too big of a pan, I like them thicker. They are very soft and chewy though.


I love garage sales for so many reasons. But today I love garage sales because I bought 43 antique jars for 15 bucks! It was a steal. So now I am reorganizing.

lovely stash of Jars

I made chalk board labels. Hobby lobby has the adhesive chalk board paper and I just ran it through my cricut to get cool shapes- but you could always just cut out squares with scissors.

As of March 1 I gave up eating anything with gluten, so here are some of my new flours I am learning to cook with!

David and I were given this when we first got married, its taken us almost 3 years to actually paint it. We got some cheep discounted paint at Walmart, and I am not fond of the shade of green. I will be looking for some cool stencils and jazz this up later, haha.
