RECIPE: Gluten-Free Zucchini Brownies
So, since I can't get the kids to eat zucchini any other way, I decided to try my mom's Zucchini Brownie Recipe and make it Gluten-Free.
I chose to use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour for this recipe. This is the first mix I saw at the local health food store, and it doesn't contain the gums (xanthan, guar, etc) that I don't particularly care for. So far, I am pretty happy with it in the 3 recipes I have used it in. (See Elderberry Adventures post from yesterday for the other two recipes I experimented with.)
The only thing I changed from the original recipe was the flour: rather than regular flour, I subbed the Bob's Gluten-free flour 1:1. I think it was just fine, and filled my chocolate need.
This makes more of a cake-like brownie, for you brownie conoisseurs.
Mom's Zucchini Brownies
2 c grated zucchini
2 c flour
1 1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c cocoa
1/2 cup nuts(I don't usually add these)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c oil
2 beaten eggs
Mix all of the ingredients together and spread in a greased 9 by 13 pan. Bake at 350* for 20 min or until done (my glass pan takes a bit longer).
