Frosted brownies (gluten & sugar free)

Brownies[Update: Due to allergies to dairy and eggs, I can’t eat frosted brownies anymore.  But they’re a nice gluten-free option so I’ve left the recipe on the blog]

One of the troubles with being both gluten-free and sugar-free is that it makes desserts practically impossible.  I can never eat them at holiday parties or bakeries, which normally isn’t a problem but sometimes my sweet tooth kicks in.

Thanks to all the sweet, gluteny they’ll-likely-go-straight-to-your-waistline-but-totally-worth-it holiday temptations from last month, I’ve been in need of a chocolate fix.

I wanted a nice big slice of chocolate cake, but this frosted brownie and a big glass of milk did the trick just fine.


Allergen/Sensitivity Info: Gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free, and egg-free.

Yields: About six slices (or less, depending how how much you’re in need of chocolate).

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix together mashed bananas, applesauce, Splenda, butter, and vanilla.  Then, add in gluten-free flour, chocolate, and baking soda.  Mix until mixture is smooth.
  3. Pour batter into a pre-greased 9×9 backing dish.
  4. Bake for about 35 minutes.  The brownies should still be soft but shouldn’t jiggle when you shake the pan (if it looks like Jell-O, you’re not done).
  5. Let cool before adding frosting.  Heap on as much as you like.
  6. Slice and enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk.
