I know I’m cutting it close, but I thought that easy to make, fudgy gluten-free brownies would be perfect for Memorial Day cookouts. I’ve made 4 different batches and this version is definitely our favorite.
When I make brownies, Joe has one consistent complaint – my brownies don’t have that neat crust that brownies made with white sugar have. I used palm sugar for these and though the crust isn’t the same, it’s close. He says that this batch tastes like ‘real brownies.’ They’re moist and fudgy with the perfect balance of sweetness and chocolate.
In the spirit of quick and simple, I used Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix. No need to add xanthan gum or baking powder – it’s already in the mix.
If you want to reduce the fat, replace the butter or oil with an equal amount of plain yogurt or unsweetened applesauce. The brownies will be more cake-like but still delicious.

“Progress, Not Perfection” is my topic – I hope you’ll take a few minutes to stop by and see what I have to say. And, yes, even an occasional brownie has it’s place in a healthier diet.
