Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies

Brownies, brownies, brownies…It’s rich, chocolatey and is insanely delicious…

I wonder if there is anyone who can possibly ignore this particular dessert. I can only hear them say ” more please”. It’s that delicious and everyone knows that. I had tried brownies from many pastry shops and restaurants, but was lacking the expertise to make this on my own. You can only wait for a while but not for a lifetime. That happened to me too, I couldn’t wait till I became an expert to make this. Last weekend, I got the feeling that I am good enough to bake this in my kitchen. When your mind tells something like this, no one can stop you.

When the brownies came out pretty good, I felt I shouldn’t have waited this long to make this. Anyway, it’s better late than never. Also, I ended up making a second batch of these as the first batch got over in the blink of an eye. I shared the brownies with my co-workers on Monday which also helped to beat the Monday blues.

As part of my husband’s gluten free diet, I had bought a pack of Clubhouse potato starch. On the back of the pack, there was a recipe for brownies. The recipe sounded so easy and good to me, hence I decided to give it a shot. The brownies came out pretty great in just 25 minutes of baking. You don’t need an electric mixer nor a stand mixer to make the batter, just a whisk will do all the magic.
