{gluten-free fudgy brownies}


Good morning!!  I was crazy productive yesterday.  Even crossed off a few of my Intentions I set for the week.  It totally works.  Write that shit down.  Cross that shit off.  It feels so good.

Let’s chat about this….when is the last time you took EVERYTHING out of your refrigerator and wiped everything down, threw away outdated condiments, organized drawers?  Gratifying AF!  Who knew such a task could make me that happy?  I vow to do this monthly.  I opened the fridge about 28 times last night to admire it.  Swear!  Haha!

Another Intention I was able to mark off….Gluten-Free Brownies.  Kinda!  Bailey the baker actually did this for me!

Against her will.  She said, “I don’t do that gluten-free stuff.”  I promised her they would turn out and she’d dig them.  I totally lied.  I was a little skeptical too.  I was really counting on Martha to pull through on this one.  I read the 569 reviews on this recipe.   Well, maybe just like 5 of the 569.  Let’s be real.  It sounded like a slam dunk.  I only made a couple of slight modifications.  Oh and by the way, I’m certainly not on a gluten-free diet or anything.  I just like to try out recipes that peeps swear by.

No flour.  Just cornstarch?  Then I read the ingredients.  Not funky items I’d have to make a special grocery store run for?  Let’s do this!!

They are totally fudgy.  Perfectly chocolaty!  So chewy.  Full of tasty toasty walnuts.  Yummm!  I swear, you will NOT believe these are a gluten-free dessert!

I was so damn impressed, I drove to my parents house at 10pm to have my Mom try them.  Well, and to do another load of laundry.  Washer is coming Friday….can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!

She LOVED them too!  Told ya!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped + toasted

*optional: 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.   


{my favorite mess maker…I mean baker}



Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter (or spray) a 9 inch square baking pan.  You can line with parchment paper, leaving about an inch overhang on all sides.  (I don’t do this, but it would definitely make them easier to remove).

Mix together cornstarch + cocoa powder + salt, set aside.

In a large microwave safe mixing bowl, melt butter + chocolate chips together in 30-second increments, until melted + smooth.

Using a mixer, add sugar + vanilla to the melted chocolate.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Mix well.

Add cornstarch mixture and combine well.  Stir in walnuts.

Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake 25-30 minutes.



Would you look at that?

Looks like a brownie!

Tastes like a brownie!



Bay requested to have these a la mode tonight.  I love the way that girl thinks ♥


Store these bad boys in an air tight container.  They should keep for about 3-days…that is if you can keep your hands off them!  Good Luck!!!


I bought these chocolate chips a couple of weeks ago, completley by accident.  I couldn’t taste any difference.




If you’re craving a sweet treat, try these out and let me know what you think!!
