development – gluten-free brown rice brownies

09.09 001

The title may not sound like much, but after the dancer and I made five batches of brownies the other afternoon…(the other batches were made with whole wheat flour) these were the clear winners!  My gf and non-gf eating extended family raved about them.

Taken from Robyn Ryberg’s You Won’t Believe It’s Gluten-Free  cookbook:

(The only thing I substituted was raw sugar for refined, and half the amount).  If you want it dairy-free, try using coconut oil instead of the butter.

1/2 c butter, melted
1/2 c raw sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c brown rice flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp xantham gum

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×9″ baking pan.
2. Mix all ingredients together (don’t bother creaming the butter and sugar first for the batter will get too thick). Spread batter into the pan and Bake for 30 minutes.
3. For moist and chewy brownies, remove and allow pan to cook a few minutes outside of the oven before serving.

Makes about 9 brownies (unless you cut them smaller :))

Next time I’m adding pecans.  🙂

    • Welcome Kathy 🙂 I enjoyed reading through your site as well! I think the kiddos and I will have to try the ginger snaps this week. 🙂

  1. Okay – So when I was once a Madsen, I knew that your family had some food issues. However, I never knew exactly what the issue was. Is it gluten? Is it Celiac Disease? I found that I have a gluten intolerance within the last year and it’s been difficult but I feel so much better eating gluten free! I can’t wait to try your GF peach pancakes. Peaches and pancakes are both favorites of mine to together? Oh – I bet they’re yummy!

    My friend just introduced me to the whole NAET thing and I just got in touch with someone up in Midway and am considering that route. Not just for the gluten stuff, but just to feel better in general. It’s great to hear that it’s helped you so much. I’m wanting my husband to try it because he has such bad allergies.

    • Hello beautiful. I have much to say about allergies, food allergies, health…but it will not fit in this comment box. 🙂 NAET has done more good for my family and I in the past 3 months than any other health practice/medical thinking in my past 32 years. I go to ZD in Midway, and she is absolutely incredible. I was treated for grains wednesday evening and am slowly reintroducing them into my diet. When I was 20 I was told I was allergic to wheat, cows milk, and had sugar sensitivities. I’ve always been allergic to pollen, plants, all animals, and over time have become allergic to perfumes, chemicals (especially the cleaning kind), and other things I wasn’t even aware of. I promise to write more about my health and NAET as soon as one of our computers is working. I feel ready to write about it. Till then, call me if you like or just go. Sean and my cuz Sara are now driving up to see ZD once a week. You could carpool with them if you like or take your hubby. It is such an amazing journey, it would be great to support each other, and it sounds like he has plenty of allergies as well. We’ll chat more soon. luv to you both!
