flourless brownies

I made these brownies thanks to having almond flour on hand and because I'm always interested in homemade brownie recipes.  I have talked about why I'd never make boxed brownies before, and these confirm yet again why there are so many simple and delicious homemade brownie recipes out there.

These have no flour making them gluten free.  Gluten-free things make a lot of people happy these days so consider these a good thing to know about.  Just looking at this picture makes me want to make them again which leads me to tell you about the sweet tooth I've developed since Tucker's arrival.  Maybe not just a sweet tooth but a greater love and appreciation for chocolate- good chocolate- dark chocolate.  I have a feeling chocolate cookies are in our future, many of which will go in freezer bags and these again too to celebrate the upcoming weekend and 60 degree weather of course.

This recipe is adapted from Bread and Wine and that recipe is from Nigella Lawson.

Ingredients You'll Need:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cups butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal (or ground almonds)
  1. Preheat your oven to 325.  Melt the chocolate and butter over low heat in a saucepan, stirring until done.  Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and sugar and let it cool for a few minutes.
  2. Once it's a bit cool stir in the eggs and almond meal then pour into a prepared 8x8 pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.  I really like the baking spray out there but you could also just butter the dish. 
I liked these a bit warm with vanilla ice cream but plain the next day worked just fine as well!  I'm happy to say I controlled myself and we had them several days later when my friend Kate visited and they were still delicious then!
