Super Bowl Brownies

It’s especially difficult to go to social gatherings when you have food allergies.  I definitely try my best to not be a hassle and have everyone go out of their way for me!  I always bring something that I can eat and I find it even better when I bring more than enough for everyone and the “allergen eaters” help themselves to seconds!  It’s definitely a good feeling to know that your food tastes good enough for everyone to enjoy, not just those who have to eat that way.  

This recipe was good enough for our allergen eating friends at their Super Bowl party!  Hopefully your allergen eating friends will feel the same way!

Super Bowl Brownies!

Organic Ingredients:

½ cup gluten free all purpose flour

1 cup tapioca flour

½ cup coconut flour

1 cup + ½ cup cane sugar

½ cup cacao powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ tsp himalayan salt

1 cup gluten free, soy free, nut free, dairy free, egg free chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand recommended) + more for greasing pan

¼ cup + 2 tbsp Earth Balance - dairy, egg, soy free butter spread

1 tsp vanilla 

¼ cup + 2 tbsp gluten free oat milk

1.5 tbsp ground flax meal 

3 tbsp hot water

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. 

2.  Use your Earth Balance spread to throughly grease a 8x8in square baking dish (if you use a metal one, you may want to line with parchment paper for easier removal.)

2.  Combine the ground flax meal and the 3 tbsp of water and whisk together.  This is your egg replacement and should have a gooey, egg-like consistency.  

3.  In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients: flours, cacao powder, salt, baking soda and set aside

3.  In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and Earth Balance spread.  If you don’t have a double boiler (which I don’t), you can use a large bowl with boiling water.  Just place a smaller bowl inside with the chocolate chips and Earth Balance spread and stir until smooth.  

4.  Whisk in your flax egg mixture, sugar, vanilla, and oat milk to the melted chocolate

5.  Pour your wet chocolate mixture over your dry ingredients and mix well.  This is supposed to be very dry so don’t worry if your mixture looks crumbly like mine! 

6.  If you prefer, you can add in ¼ cup chocolate chips to your mixture if you like having chocolate chunks in your brownies!

7.  Put your dough into the baking dish and press down firmly with your hands.  Make sure your brownie mixture is compact because the end result will be a bit crumbly so you want to make sure there is as little air as possible in the dish!

8.  Bake your brownies for 30-34 minutes.

9.  When your brownies are finished baking, let them sit for 1.5 hours.  Do not attempt to cut or remove brownies or they will crumble and fall apart and you’ll be forced to eat them out of a bowl like cereal with a spoon.

10.  Cut, serve and enjoy!  Your delicious, secretly gluten, dairy, soy, egg, nut free brownies will last up 5 days in an airtight container!  Go Niners!!!
