Vegan, Wheat-Free Brownies

Trust me - they taste better than they sound! I like these because they don't turn out like cake the way many vegan brownie recipes do. Be sure to read the ingredients on the semi-sweet chocolate chips to avoid milk fat if you want to keep them vegan.

I used 1 cup honey instead of the 2 cups of sugars as well as brown rice flour. These were awesome, thanks so much for sharing!

These are really good, even for a non vegan wheat eater. One tip: you need to whisk the rice flour fast or it gets really lumpy! My first batch were filled with little gummy lumps as a result. But they were still delicious! Also, I used regular white rice flour, not sweet white rice flour, so I don't know if that made a difference.

I added dried cherries (which I rehydrated for juiciness) and roasted hazelnuts. I also used half raw caster sugar and half raw demerera. They were delicious. I was a bit worried when I saw the crispy top, but was delighted that the brownie had remained slightly fudgy in the middle. I cooked at 170 C in a fan assisted oven and reduced the cooking time by 5 mins. After removing from the oven and allowing to cool, I refrigerated overnight. They tasted even better the day after serving, so make lots to save! I'll definitely be making these again a.s.a.p!
