(No one seemed to notice that there was no cocoa in this recipe. I am editing it now, for my own benefit. They aren’t very brownie-ish without that cocoa!)
Congratulations to Iris, my Pampered Chef lady and unstoppable cook! Her brownies won 1st place at the OC Fair and deservedly so. I have had them. They really are amazing. How the heck you can make brownies without all the brownie stuff like butter and eggs? But it’s for real!
You have to try these if you have any food allergies in the house. Even if you don’t, these are just plain good. And Iris likes to use the Pampered Chef brownie pan for lots of chewy edge pieces. The picture is small though, sorry. It does not do them justice.
2 CUPS GF FLOUR (I use Bob’s Red Mill), you can make your own GF flour too.
2 cups brown sugar 3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthum gum (if you use regular flour you don’t need to use xanthum gum).
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup express coffee + 3/4 cup water (total of 1 cup of liquid)
1 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
mix all the ingredients together. pour into a brownie pan (13×9 pan), and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes.
Yep, that’s it. I know its hard to believe. No creaming or special instructions. Just the best way. Mix, pour, bake.
Then she wins 1st place at the fair. Way to go Iris!
