Gluten-Free Brownie MixMADE BY JULIE'S ORIGINAL IN BEAVERTON, OREGON
You’ll have to fight your gluten-loving, non-vegan friends for the very last crumbs of these crackly on top, fudgy in the middle brownies that want for nothing – except maybe a cold glass of (almond) milk.
Portland-based Julie Hasson may well have achieved the impossible. She created a non-gritty, not overly-sweet mix that bakes up gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, egg-free, chocolate-FULL brownies that are everything those with (and without!) diet restrictions could dream of.
Stir in oil, non-dairy milk (our coconut oil, almond milk combo proved mighty tasty) and whatever additions strike your fancy (almond extract, dark chocolate chips and sea salt over here) and you’ll have a treat perfect for birthday parties, bake sales, potlucks, book clubs – anywhere there’s a mixed crowd.
Three cheers for equal opportunity sweets!
TIP OF THE TONGUESo many ways to gussy up these brownies, so little time. We can help! Add some tart to your sweet by stirring in dried cherries. Or when you feel like a nut, how about spiced pecans? Ooh, and a swirl of salty caramel could never hurt. Shall we go on?
