GFCF Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

GFCF Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

4 oz. unsweetened baking squares
11 tablespoons GFCF Margarine (I used Crystal Farms Dairy Free)
1 7/8 cups sugar (2 cups minus 2 tablespoons)
3 eggs
1 cup GF Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF mix)
1 tablespoon Xanthan Gum
½ chopped nuts

1 tablespoon GFCF Margarine
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup peanut butter

Melt chocolate and 11 tablespoons of margarine. Stir in sugar. Add Eggs and mix well. Add flour, Xanthan Gum and nuts; stir until well blended. Spread in a well-greased 13 x 9 pan that has been lined with parchment paper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter. Stir in sugar and peanut butter. Drop by spoonfuls into batter. Swirl with knife several times.

Bake at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted n center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool in pan. Lift out of pan and cut into squares.

Oh, my gosh, that looks good! I'll have to try those next weekend. Tried the corndogs and they turned out great! Thanks.

A question for you...my husband is reacting to the GFCF recipes I try. He can't eat the muffins or brownies. Last weekend, when I cooked the corndogs, he said he could tell they would make them sick if he tried them just by smelling them. Have you ever hear of this? I'm thinking it's the xantham gum...

I'm glad the corn dogs turned out for you.

I'm not sure about your husband, it could be a number of things - your best bet is to probably to look and see what they all have in common and eliminate them one by one. The Xanthan gum is such a small quantity I doubt he would be able to smell that, but maybe. It could be one of the flours - or anything really.

Sorry - not much help -
