Gluten Free Brownies Recipe

For those of you on a gluten free diet and looking for good gluten free recipes calling for minimal processed ingredients, I'll let you in on a little secret- look at Passover recipes, especially ones labeled "non gebrokts" as the first are most of the time gluten free, and the latter are always gluten free. Or check out Primal or Paleo diet websites, as their recipes are also all gluten free and without processed ingredients.
I found this gluten free brownie recipe on the site of a blogger who I've found via her linking up to the Hearth and Soul blog hop. She's got a lot of great frugal recipes there, and this one happened to be gluten free and delicious! I adapted it somewhat to make it cheaper (lowering the amount of cocoa powder and cutting out the chocolate chips and the nuts) and its been a huge hit in my family. Next goal- attempt to make it refined sugar free!
But in the meantime, here's the great recipe that simply gets devoured in our house.

Gluten Free Brownies Recipe

5 large eggs
1 cup oil (I've used sunflower, palm, and walnut but you can use whichever oil you like best)
2.5 cups sugar (I know, its a lot!)
1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla sugar (I used my homemade vanilla sugar)
1.5 cups cocoa powder
2.5 cups potato starch, corn starch, or tapioca starch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Mix the first four ingredients.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
3. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan. I line mine with parchment paper; if you don't, you may want to grease the pan.
4. Bake at 350 until a knife stuck into the center comes out clean. This should be between 20 and 35 minutes.


Are you a brownie lover? Do you like chocolate in general? What is your favorite way to eat chocolate? Do you prefer brownies or chocolate cake?
As for me, I love chocolate, ideally chocolate with mint. Lately, I've fallen in love with dark chocolate and prefer it to milk chocolate (which is a good thing, because I can't eat milk). I prefer brownies to chocolate cake, and typically don't enjoy store bought chocolate ice cream as I find it too chocolately...
