Gooey Gluten Free Brownie Recipe

Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their gluten-free organic brown rice syrup to try. My first thought was either to use it in an ice cream or in a baked dessert. Brownies, I thought! Oh, I couldn’t get them out of my mind! I already have a couple of gluten-free brownie recipes, however, I really was looking forward to making a healthier one, and one that was super gooey! I performed a search online for brown rice syrup recipes and stumbled upon just what I had in mind, a brownie recipe made with brown rice syrup! I converted it to gluten-free brownie recipe and 1 1/2 times’ed the recipe, as it originally made such small brownies. So, here it is – my newest gluten-free brownie recipe. It’s ooey, gooey, sticky and tastes almost like a chocolate caramel. I added a bit of flaxseed meal to make it a little more healthier, but using organic brown rice syrup was such a great start. Brown rice syrup may look like agave, but is barely sweet, and especially when this recipe is made with bittersweet chocolate. Definitely a decadent delight. Enjoy! And stay tuned in tomorrow for the Tropical Traditions brown rice syrup giveaway with 5 winners!
