    Unlike some gluten-free cakes and bakes, these brownies have a pleasant texture as well. The fact they are made with no refined sugars is an added bonus!

    I have made other gluten free brownies and I thought these were pretty good. I followed the recipe, except for the coconut oil I used half vegetable oil and half butter with canola oil. I didn't want them overly sweet, so I subbed half the honey with coconut sugar. I added the optional walnuts and highly recommend that. I lined an 8" pan with heavy duty foil and sprayed with Baker Joy spray. The lifted right off the foil. I got 16 brownies. ty  -  02 Sep 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were so good. I doubled the recipe and baked in an 8X8 pan. I didn't have coconut oil so I used veg oil. They are so chocolatey and delicious without the refined sugar.  -  26 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought it might be a little weird with the honey, but it is fine. Also thought maybe more cocoa would be wanted, but 5 T is more than enough for this.  -  14 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
