Easy, healthy & yummy gluten & dairy free chocolate browniesIMG 0454 compress compress

Due to popular demand I’m sharing my amazing gluten and dairy free, paleo choc chip brownie recipe!  All ingredients used were organic but I’m sure it will still work otherwise… They are perfectly gooey in the middle, lightly crusty on the outside, and simply delicious!

Set the oven at 190°C. Beat the eggs in a large bowl and then add the ingredients above in order. Once they’re all in, use a wooden spoon to mix very well until evenly consistent.

Line a (approx) 20cm X 26cm tin with non-bleached parchment/baking paper, and pour the mixture in.

A happy, brownie eating, yogini

Bake on the middle shelf for 25-30 minutes until the top has gone golden and a toothpick comes out clean.  Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before carefully lifting the baking paper and placing the brownie on a flat surface.  Wait a further 10 minutes for it to set a little further before cutting into square.  Store in a (non-toxic) tupperware, if they even last that long;-)
