BUT, I came across these Mocha Fudge Brownies from Crystal Carver’s cookbook, Sweet & Simple Gluten-free Baking and I had to take another “go” at it. Needless to say, they turned out Ah-Ma-Zing even though I changed some of the ingredients to make it dairy & egg free.

The Cookbook

Crystal loved baking, but when both daughters were diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, she decided to help others and shoe them how gluten-free baked goods can be delicious, nutritious, and simple to make! Within the pages of her cookbook, you’ll find dozens of irresistible recipes like Mocha Fudge Brownie,  just waiting to please your family’s palate! Crystal includes handy baker’s notes, substitution solutions, and full-page color photos, as well as walks you through each recipe showing how easy it can be to bake gluten-free.  (Keep reading for our cookbook giveaway).  You can also check out her blog, Gluten-free for even more recipes and resources including this scrumptious Gluten-free Chocolate Cake.

Mocha Fudge Brownie

This Mocha Fudge Brownie combines 3 elements that makes my heart happy!  Chocolate, coffee & a buttery shortbread crust.   YUM, YUM & YUM!  If you can do dairy & egg,  just follow the recipe as is.  I found this sweetened condensed coconut milk that works perfectly as a substitution if needed.  It’s like drinking liquid gold! Pick up several cans of it so you can use it later of your Coffee Granita, like we did.

As for the egg replacer, the first time I made this, I used an aqua faba egg.  Everyone loved the taste of the brownie, but it was a little too soft and gooey for my liking.  I also made this using a flax egg and the consistency was much more like a chewy brownie, so base your replacer on what type of brownie you prefer.  These delicious looking Gluten-free Vegan Brownies from Beaming Baker also flax eggs.
