Flourless Chocolate Brownies a.k.a. Gluten Free Brownies! I’ve been wanting to try out this recipe for a little while now, not only because a few of my friends are gluten free but because I wanted to see what they would be like compared to brownies I’ve made before. I’m a big fan of brownies, the ultimate chocolate indulgence – but what about the gluten free version?! …
Turns out they are even better!! They’re a lighter and more cake like brownie but they still have that recognisable fudgey and super chocolately taste – YUM! With a more cakey bake they are extra crumbly so you’ll have to work a little harder to eat every last crumb, but it’s so worth it! I’m definitely going to be making these flourless brownies again … I always feel like a clear indicator of the popularity of a bake is how long they last … these brownies didn’t even make it 24 hours before being polished off, which for me is so great as I love to share what I’ve made! ❤️
If you’re looking for a chocolate indulgence then look no further than these flourless chocolate brownies – super delicious you’ll probably (definitely!!) need more than one! A great sweet snack or a scrummy dessert – just warm through in the microwave and serve with ice cream or cream – utter heavenly bliss!
