These brownies are a delicious treat that should please almost everyone in the family. Fudgy and rich, they’re also gluten-free!

Ingredients (yield 12 servings)

  • ½ cup reduced calorie trans fat-free margarine
  • 5 oz dark chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup almonds, processed into a fine meal/flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips, optional

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with foil and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In the microwave, melt margarine and dark chocolate chips in a large, microwave-safe measuring cup, in 20-second intervals, until melted. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs until frothy.
  • Add brown sugar and whisk for 1 minute, or until the mixture is smooth.
  • Gradually add the melted chocolate mixture into the egg-sugar mixture, and mix well for 1 minute, or until the chocolate is smooth and glossy.
  • In a bowl, combine rice flour, almond meal, salt, and baking soda; whisk together. Add to the chocolate mixture and mix well for 1 minute. Add vanilla and mix for 30 seconds.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Tap the pan on the counter to even out the batter.
  • If desired, layer nuts and/or semisweet chocolate chips over the top of the batter and press them in slightly.
  • Bake for 33 to 35 minutes or until the brownies are set. Cool on a wire rack; remove the brownies from the pan by gripping the foil edges. Chill before cutting.
