Gluten-Free Brownie Recipes
Who doesn’t love a moist and fudge-y gluten free brownie?
Unfortunately, in most cases, those little morsels of chewy goodness come with a lot of ingredients we don’t want:
- Simple carbs (from high glycemic rice flour and potato starch)
- Refined sugars
- Low quality “chocolate”
But when you make gluten free brownies using intelligent ingredients and superfoods – like antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, fat-burning coconut oil and nutrient-dense grass-fed butter , sweetened naturally with low glycemic sweeteners like erythritol and stevia – you can enjoy brownies that actually benefit your health.
In fact, eating a brownie made with pure, organic cocoa can help to fight free radicals, ward off cancer, boost your memory, reduce inflammation and much more.
All this from a brownie, you ask? You bet!
Finding the Right Gluten-Free Brownie Recipe
The key to creating a perfect, healthy gluten free brownie is in choosing the right cocoa, sweeteners and healthy fats.
When choosing chocolate for your brownie recipe, you’ll want to choose organic, unsweetened cocoa powder for the most benefits and rich chocolate flavor. Avoid Dutch processed cocoa, as it has been treated with chemicals (alkalizing agents) that reduce the antioxidant value by half!
To add the perfect level of sweetness – without a single calorie or a gram of sugar – opt for non-GMO erythritol. You can use it cup for cup in all of your recipes just like sugar. Boost the sweetness of your gluten free brownies with stevia or luo han guo. And be sure to avoid “natural” sweeteners that are often promoted as a healthy alternative to sugar, such as honey or maple syrup. They are very high in fructose which can promote a wide range of health issues.
Beyond Basics: Making Artisan Brownies
Of course there are a wide range of handcrafted products you can use to create decadent and healthy gluten free brownies. Products like raw cacao, cocoa nibs and artisan chocolate bars have better chocolate flavor and all the health benefits to go along with them.
Follow those rules when making brownies and you’ll be sure to maximize the health benefits without minimizing flavor.
