GLUTEN FREE PEPPERMINT BROWNIES

January 22, 2014

Lots of gluten free baked goods can claim “gluten free” only if you’re willing to buy at least one speciality ingredient. I like dabbling in the GF world to keep my sweets a bit healthier, but I’m non-committal.

If you’re like me in that way, this is a great dessert to dip your toe into the gluten free water (weird) and try it out. No specialty flours needed, only a regular can of black beans!
