BROWNIE RECIPE & APOLOGIES

Hello everyone!  I know.  Where have I been?  Well truth is I started a new job, went on a trip to TN with my mom, and then got a cold.  So, some sacrifices had to be made.  I'm still a little sick, but figured I'd update and share a modified Bob's Red Mill brownie recipe.

I purchased some Gluten Free Bob's Red Mill Brownie Mix at Big Lots recently, and I thought I'd share my experience with the GF brownies.  My mom went gluten free this past summer and has been experiencing wonderful results.  Many people are gluten sensitive and there are many people who are actually gluten intolerant; meaning gluten may kill them if consumed.  I'm not going to go into all the recent research on the matter just because I'm not an expert, but I do highly recommend researching more about gluten and it's ties to depression, lethargy, obesity, and other conditions.
 
THE RECIPE

The recipe on the package reads:
1 package Bob's Red Mills Brownie Mix
Beat in 3/4 cup or 1/2 sticks melted butter or margarine
1 egg
2 tps. gluten free vanilla
3/4 cup warm water
Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until just combined

MY RECIPE

1 package Bob's Red Mills Brownie Mix
Beat in 3/4 cup of Safflower Oil
1 egg (next time I'm trying egg substitute)
2 tps gluten free vanilla
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 a package of white chocolate chips (I had these already and I don't really like white chocolate, but I like the chips in cookies and brownies)

Then you just heat the oven to 350 degrees, then cook for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.  I have a gas oven, which typically cooks faster, but with these was closer to the 30 minute mark.  






























These are a bit dense, but they are still very good.  I say try it out and see what you think.  If it's better for your health, why not try it?  Enjoy!

**ALSO Stay tuned for an E-book that is coming out soon by my lovely mother.  It's all about making gluten free staples on a budget.  Really good E-book, will be on Barnes and Noble and through my blog soon!
