Food on Fridays with Ann
This is the perfect time of year to satisfy my sweet tooth with fresh cherries and blueberries, plums and grapes.And yet…
…every now and then I gaze at a pan of brownies and feel a pang. A longing.
It’s a chocolate thing, I guess.
So I looked into various gluten-free brownie recipes and landed at the blog recommended by so many people: Gluten-Free Goddess.
I whipped up her brownie recipe in no time and when I took a bite, that morsel traveled down to a place inside of me that blueberries can’t reach.
Some of you will understand.
My family left them all for me, so I cut up several single servings, stuck them in plastic snack baggies, sealed them shut, and froze them for picnics or road trips or lunches.
Or any time blueberries aren’t quite hitting the spot.

Those brownies look sinfully delicious.
They were worth every calorie!
Hazel Moon says
I will need to shop for the rice meal but the rest I can handle. Looks good and I bet it tastes good too!
They tasted much better than expected, Hazel. If you can eat gluten, there’s no reason to stray from your favorite brownie recipe. But if you can’t tolerate gluten, or if you are baking for friends who need gluten-free, I think this is a tasty alternative.
I’m impressed you have all those ingredients on hand!

Just so you know, The Chocolate Tree in Beaufort, where Uncle Don buys his candy gifts, is having an “all you can eat night”! $15 for a 2l/2 hour orgy of chocolate. We will NOT be going!
What a fun idea! Will they just set out those big hunks of chocolate that you see sometimes at the grocery store? How could they afford to otherwise?
My girls would go. Sounds like crazy fun!
Barb @ Frugal Local Kitchen says
Oh, be still my heart – gluten-free brownies! I checked the recipe – I have the ingredients. Do I have the time today? One would say it’s a question of priorities.
Priorities. Well, today I don’t crave them and I don’t have the time, so that worked out nicely. But the other day, I wanted some brownies really bad, so I *made* time! 🙂

Oh my! Thank you so much Ann. We buy the premade boxes of gluten-free cookies/ brownies and it is just not the same. I have been very hesitant to try a recipe online. Gives me great peace of mind to know they passed your taste test.
Trish, I bought a premade box once about a month ago, and they were gooooood (considering they were gluten-free). But so expensive! For this, I still had to use some unusual and pricey ingredients, but overall they are less expensive and yummy. Again, considering I am no longer able to have regular brownies, I was thrilled that these tasted normal.

The Chocolate Tree’s all you can eat night is for all their usual goodies!
Golly! You should go!
