My Favorite Gluten Free Double Chocolate Almond Brownies

1 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar or 1 cup Palm Sugar omitting the brown and cane sugar

1 Tbs Pernigotti cocoa powder

1 cup dark chocolate chopped chocolate chunks or chips

1 generous pinch of sea salt

1/2 tsp dried espresso powder

1 Tbs Gluten Free Vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup Maninis Gluten Free Multiuso Flour Mix

3 eggs

1/2 cup toasted almonds chopped

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Use a non-stick cupcake pan.

Stir and melt the butter, sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate in a pan on the stove over medium heat. Once all of the ingredients are incorporated add the salt, espresso powder and vanilla.  Mix well and set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl add the GF flour.  Slowly incorporate the chocolate mixture into the flour and mix well.

Beat the eggs and add them to the mixture.  Toss in the almonds and fold in to the mix.

Use a medium spring scoop to add the brownie batter to the cupcake pan.

Bake for 18-20 minutes.

I love my Gluten Free Chocolate Ice Cream Browniewich because it is the perfect way to enjoy a little treat without going overboard.  I like making the brownies in the cupcake pan because it forms the perfect brownie for one large scoop of ice cream to fit inside.  Nothing more!  Besides it looks cute and it is so fun to eat!

I have made my Gluten Free Chocolate (or insert your favorite flavor here) Ice Cream Browniewich with just about every flavor of Gluten Free ice cream. Berry, Caramel, Espresso, Vanilla, Coconut and Dulce de Leche! Trust me you can’t go wrong.  In the picture above, I used a rocky road ice cream with – marshmallows and almonds for added fun! The hardest thing about this dessert is patiently waiting while the brownies bake and cool.

TIP – If you want to make your GF brownies faster use a mix.  I like Pamela’s Products, Trader Joe’s and Namaste.  Just add some GF vanilla and espresso powder for extra flavor. These brownies freeze beautifully in a freezer self sealing bag. Make sure that the brownies cool completely on a rack before putting them in a bag.  To defrost just let them sit on the counter for a few minutes to defrost to room temperature. Slice, assemble, dive in and enjoy your Gluten Free Chocolate Ice Cream Browniewich!
