Gluten Free Bars: Rocky Road Brownies

For the brownies

3/4 cup gluten free flour blend ( I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour)
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend has it already)
1/4 cup butter or non-dairy margarine
1 1/2 cups gluten free semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. gluten free vanilla extract

For the Topping:
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 cup gluten free semi-sweet chocolate chips, to drizzle


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

Whisk the flour,baking soda, salt and xanthan gum (if needed) and set aside.
In a large microwavable container, melt the butter and 1 cup of the chocolate chips in 10 second intervals until smooth. Mix the eggs and vanilla together in a medium bowl.

Add the melted chocolate to the eggs and combine. Add the dry ingredients and stir together. throw in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips into the brownie batter. Pour into the 8×8 baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Immediately sprinkle with the marshmallows. Turn the oven to broil and broil until the marshmallows turn golden brown. Take out and sprinkle with the peanuts and the chocolate chips.

Cool and cut into squares.

Remember: Gluten free brownies are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with some crumbs on it. It is better to have your brownies a little undone than overdone and dry.

Surprise someone you know with a pan of homemade brownies.

Happy Baking!
