Gluten Free... I forgot on Friday, so here it is SUNDAY!

So here’s my Friday. Actually, here is my everyday.

Wake up; want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I have a shake, or maybe egg whites.

Lunchtime; want something sweet & delicious to eat….so I have a salad.

Snacktime: want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I have some almonds.

Dinnertime: want something meaty & delicious to eat.... so I have some turkey/chicken, sweet potatoes and veggies.

Random points throughout the day: want something sweet & delicious to eat…. so I BAKE!

To quote my friend Erin;

“Alli, you spend more time in the Kitchen than anyone I know. You have literally baked everyday this week.”

….. and today is no different!.

Here are my gluten-free brownies.

Be aware that they still contain brown sugar. They fit into a gluten-free lifestyle, but not necessarily all healthy living lifestyles. They are still a TREAT!

Ingredients

1 bar 60-70% cocoa dark chocolate

1/2 cup organic coconut oil

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup quinoa flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla

1 serving of applesauce


Optional:
1 cup mixed nuts (walnuts, pecans etc.)
Handful dark chocolate chips


Full serving of veggies in the brand!

To make:


Preheat oven to 350.

Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan. Gently stir.

Whisk together brown sugar, quinoa flour, salt and baking soda. Add in mixture of beaten eggs, vanilla and melted chocolate/coconut oil. Whisk or beat until smooth and creamy.

Add in nuts, and spread in a nonstick pan.
