I have many recipes for brownies but these are the first successful gluten free chocolate truffle brownies I made. They are made with quinoa flour and are a delicious basic brownie recipe. The kind everyone should have.
Since quinoa is so popular it seems reasonable to me that you would share a recipe like this with friends and family who don’t need to cook gluten free. Tell them all the health benefits of quinoa, tell them you have a recipe for these awesome chocolate truffle brownies and maybe, just maybe, they will try making them. One small step toward gluten free baking and increased awareness of living with a restricted diet.
I take brownies to school meetings, work meetings or Pot Luck dinners and I send brownies to teachers, neighbours and friends. I give them as a thank you or just a nice surprise. Whether I deliver them in little cellophane bags with pretty ribbon or pile them on a tray topped with m&m’s (gluten free!) everyone loves them.
I enjoy making brownies look like a magazine photo but for everyday you can simply cut them in the pan. When a gourmet presentation is called for follow the tips in the recipe notes to cut them perfectly. Then use your imagination to present these gluten free chocolate truffle brownies in your own style.
Have fun with your brownies and share your best photo with me on Instagram.
