Gluten Free Brownies (Low Fodmap & Lactose Free)

A really yummy brownie recipe I made for the kids school lunch box.  I love surprising them with extra special goodies from time to time.  Dark chocolate has no lactose (70% and up) so is safe for those on a lactose free diet.  For those on the low FODMAP dark chocolate is also suitable but for some people it may be too much so please asses your own dietary requirements.  I am still trying to work out if dark chocolate is a problem for me, i suspect it might be so will recreate these with no dak chocolate and only use cocoa.


Gluten Free Brownies

6 Tbsp dairy free spread

200 grams  dark chocolate (70%)  chopped

1/4 cup dark brown  sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1 Tbsp cocoa

3 Tbsp  corn flour (gluten free)

1 cup  toasted nuts, roughly chopped (optional) I didnt add these as they were special snacks for the kids to take to school and there is a no nut policy otherwise I definately would add them

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.   Line an 8×8 inch dish with baking paper. (I like to spray the dish first so they baking paper sticks to it.  Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, making sure the bowl doesnt touch the water.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Stir in the sugar and eggs one at a time.    In a seperate bowl sift cocoa and corn flour and stir into the chocolate mixture, stir constantly  with a spoon for 1-2 minutes.  Then add the chopped nuts (if using).  Pour into the dish and place in the oven for 20 minutes.  Dont over cook!
