baking gluten-free sweets

King Arthur Flour’s Almond Flour Brownies

1 October 2021

These brownies are — bisous! — so good! Rich, fudgy, not exactly healthy but a truly lovely gluten-free treat that is perfect for making on a Friday afternoon to set you up properly for the weekend. For o, Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns – I heartily agree with George Eliot on this one. The apples are ripe, the light shifted last week, my little girl turned eight (!) and our Northern California mornings are wonderfully cool and crisp (before mellowing into some pretty warm evenings — tomorrow it’s supposed to hit 90?!), perfect for a hot cup of coffee and a little something.

I’ve made this recipe at least four times now, mostly as written though in subsequent efforts have trimmed down the sugar a bit. I alternate between these and my other almond flour brownies recipethe latter being the one I turn to when I really want to pretend that dessert it healthy (it’s a good one too — applesauce instead of butter and a lot less sugar). But when I don’t care about pretending, King Arthur Flour comes through. Speaking of, they have a great selection of gluten-free baking recipes on their site that are worth checking out (I’ve been experimenting here and there as I pursue more gluten-free eating. A reason I’m planning to update this site is so I can make recipes a lot more accessible, especially ones that are g-f, v and vg).

    Nice post with the expected literary quote which elevates the entire piece. Keep them coming! Love that you experiment always with ingredients… very courageous. Thank you!
