The Best Gluten-Free Brownies

If you are missing your traditional brownies that you used to love, then give these gluten-free brownies a try. These are loved by my pickiest gluten-loving friends (and gluten-free friends alike!). And the best part? They are easy to make!

Oh, and they have that little layer of crisp on the top with all of the ooey-gooey goodness below. Nom-nom!

Delightfully-rich Gluten-free Brownies
1-1/2 cups sweet (glutinous*) rice flour 2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum 1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, mix sweet (glutinous*) rice flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, corn starch, xanthan gum, and salt with a wire whisk. Stir in oil, eggs, water, and vanilla. Add chocolate chips and stir. Don’t over mix. Mixture will be very thick. Pour into greased 9 x 13-inch pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes 18 to 24 brownies.

*Glutinous rice flour is often found at your local Asian Market and refers to a type of rice also known as "sweet rice" or "sticky rice." Glutinous means sticky, not "containing gluten."
