*Most amazing brownies

hi everyone! this is a recipe i just got together this afternoon... is a variation on an old brownie recipe and i think just by pure luck it came together... they are really yummy! light and fluffy... so good news for everone like me whose been missing certain nummies of normalacy! (this recipe is only appropriate for people who are eating gluten)

Carob Brownies:
1 1/4 cup oat* flour 1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt 1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup homemade almond milk 1/2 carob powder
2 tsp vanilla essence(alchohol and sugar free)
stevia to taste chopped almonds*
1 tsp guar gum

1) mix together all dry ingredients
2) Add wet ingredients and blend thoroughly. a add nuts
3)spread in square tin and bake at 220C for +/- 10 minutes or until cooked.

enjoy! if anyone can think of any sort of icing replacer that would be really fun addition! also what could be nice to try would be to add unsweetened carob chips into the mix.

another little experiment that went well of late is really simple and straight forward but tasty. mix coconut milk and stevia to taste, and freeze in an ice tray. either plain or mixed with a spice like cinnamon? have only tried plain... is really nice for a quick sweet snack when you want one! and had helped my ice cream craving!

Thanks for the recipe - it sounds really good! I think I will give this a try this weekend, but I will have to use oat bran flour instead of regular oat flour.

So for anyone who isn't eating gluten, don't worry, you can still use this recipe, just with a minor substitution. Just grind oat bran in a blender for 2 minutes, and it makes it fine enough to be a flour. Tarilee has said that it is ok to eat on this diet. And it is moist and tasty like regular oat flour is. I use it for my vanilla cake.

One caution with this substitution: I've read some sources that say oat bran is free of gluten, but I have also read from forum members that even oat bran might have trace amounts of gluten in it. So if you are super sensitive to gluten, then you might want to research into that possibility first.

Thanks again!

Hey Tia-
Speaking of your vanilla cake, I remember you said at one point you would post the recipe for a yellow cake--- I read another one of your posts so I know you're busy (school straight into work).. but if you have a moment, I'd love to have that recipe!


Thanks for the reminder - I'm so bad about putting my recipes on here. I have so many that I want to post....I guess I've been waiting to make the recipe again, so that I can try to get all of my measurements exact and then post it. I do so many little adjustments and things "to taste" that it's sometimes hard for me to write an exact recipe. But I will start getting better about writing down amounts as I make things, so that I can post them.

I'll take a look at the recipe though...I can probably post it and then add any changes I make later. I'll try to look it over tonight....
