Gluten free baking just got super exciting!
A while ago my mom had told me to check out this blog called The Wannabe Chef. Being stubborn, I refused to look at because I was convinced that there would be nothing interesting to read, and it would just be a list of recipes that I was going to have to ignore anyway since I’m gf. A few weeks later she tried again. “Kate, you really need to check out this blog! He has tons of gluten free recipes, and they all look amazing”. Again, I ignored her. I’m not into cooking. Why would I want to check it out?
So what happened a few days ago? I stumbled on his blog while reading a bunch of different blogs about the Healthy Living Summit (looked like such a fun time!) Since I got there of my own accord, I got to reading. Then I got to following. And THEN I got to baking!
I have been craving brownies lately, and one of the posts I read was one about chocolate peanut butter swirl brownies. Heaven? I think so! So off I trucked to Whole Foods to pick up all the ingredients that I would need to make this fabulous dessert.
Then I got to use my new kitchen scale, and chopped up the bakers chocolate.
Then I poured everything into the pan and poured the peanut butter swirl on top.
Then I put it in the oven. To be completely honest with you, it wasn’t that hard! (Don’t tell my mom or sister that!) Even for a baking newbie, I was able to easily follow this recipe. He even lets you know which brands he uses for different ingredients which is a huge help when trying to decide what is safe and GF.
I let them cool completely, and then The New Yorker and I dug in, the final decision? They were awesome! The only thing I would have added would be chocolate chips. I’ll save that for next time 🙂
A huge thank you to Evan at The Wanna Be Chef for this awesome recipe! I can’t wait to try another one of your delicious creations!
