Reviews for Gluten-Free Brownies
"This was my first attempt at g-f brownies and was excellent! I replaced the three egg whites/one egg with two whole eggs and it turned out great."
"This was surprisingly delish! I substituted black beans instead of the garbanzo beans; coconut oil instead of canola oil; 3 eggs instead of 3 white and 1 egg; and 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 of sugar blend with stevia. I think it is awesome! Try it...you might be surprised!"
"This was my first attempt at baking a gluten free desset for my friends. They absolutely loved it and couldn't believe it was gluten free."
"My nieces love these!"
"Fantastic recipe! Very fudgy and tasty. I used Instant French Vanilla coffee granules and it was great. Had some friends at work try it and they thought it to be very good and fudgy - quite shocked when I told them that it was made with Garbanzo beans and no flour."
