When we take these gluten free brownies to parties everyone begs for the recipe.  They are always so surprised when they find out that I make them gluten free.  Even my husband, who doesn't prefer gluten free, LOVES these.  If you don't cook gluten free, there is a non-gluten version as well.  

Enjoy!  And Happy Holidays!  I can't wait for our upcoming Thanksgiving Feast and Christmas Parties!  Yeah, it's just around the corner.

Best Ever Brownies!  Gluten Free  by: Nicholeen Peck   

Recipe makes a 9x13 pan  (If we double it, we put it in a jelly roll pan)  

Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees.  Grease a 9 x 13 pan.   

In a sauce pan melt 1 Cup butter or margarine 

After melted add 1/2 Cup cocoa or 4 squares baking chocolate

Remove from heat and add 2 cups sugar

Then add 4 eggs stirring one in at a time until blended.  

Next add 1 tsp vanilla

1/2 Cup Rice Flour

1/2 Cup Tapioca Starch

1/2 Cup Corn Starch

(may substitute other healthier flours and even coconut oil for butter, but this may alter taste or texture)  For non-gluten free you can just use regular 1 1/2 Cups flour and omit the xantham gum. 

1 tsp Xantham Gum

1/2 tsp salt

Nuts optional  (most of the time I don't use nuts)  

Bake in heated oven for 30 minutes.  Do not overbake.  

After the brownies have cooled apply this icing.  


3 Cups powdered sugar

1/4 Cup Margarine or Butter

1/4 Cup Cocoa

1 egg or 3 TBL water

3 TBL hot milk  

Mix together then frost. 

We usually add sprinkles to the top of the frosting too.    Yummy!
