I created this recipe with inspiration from a really good traditional fudgy brownie recipe and the techniqes I've learned from Barbara Cousins (Cooking Without series). They are quite good, just not right out of the oven. The batter tastes lovely and they are chocolatey when they are cool. I didn't create these as allergy free, but to meet the health choices we have made, not eating wheat or sugar, or using milk. Sorry to disappoint anyone!
