I was pleasantly surprised at these! I used Arrowhead Mills GF all purpose baking mix instead of Pamelas (that's what I had here) and did everything else the same, using nuts.
These taste just like regular brownies. 25 minutes in a metal pan, 30 in a pyrex square. Perfect.
Pamela's is my best friend for baking, but I hadn't found a "scratch" brownie recipe yet...this recipe is PERFECT! My 11 yr old daughter made these by herself for her brother, who has celiac disease and they were fantastic! Of course, she took some creative license & used 2/3 c. chopped pecans instead of just 1/2 c., and mixed that with 2/3 c. butterscotch chips & 2/3 c. chocolate chips. Absolutely decadent with a scoop of ice cream on top. Our new favorite!!
I can't wait to make this recipe! I also tried a boxed Betty Crocker mix and found it to be gritty and unappealing. This recipe sounds much better. I can't wait to try it and add my special Paula Deen secret in the middle...Hershey's candy bars! Makes a great, gooey center. But don't forget to warm them up before you eat them or the candy bar gets hard. But this recipe sounds great!! Finally, gluten-free baking!
I added chocolate chips, and the brownies were wonderful!
Thank you so much for posting this recipe! This is only my second try at a GF brownie, but it was a great improvement. I tried a box mix that someone had recommended and found it gritty. This recipe was much better. I found it to be cake-like, but with a definite brownie taste. Yummy! Even both of my girls liked it. It is more economical, too. I like how quick it was to make because of the mix. It will be nice to have this recipe on hand for when I want a quick desert/snack. Now my problem will be not eating it all.
Awesome brownies! I used my own gluten-free flour blend and they came out perfect. Wonderfully fudgy!
So glad this was posted here. I couldn't find a Pamela's recipe for brownies with cocoa powder. Makes big, puffy, cake-like brownies. Very happy celiac person right now.
