These perfectly delicious brownie bites should fill that empty chocolate spot! (Not only are they just the right size for a little treat – they’re also gluten-free, which is splendid!)
OVEN: 325° F | BAKE: 10 minutes | YIELD: 40-44 Mini-Muffins | NOTE: Gluten-Free
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum
1/4 cup potato starch
2 Tb. tapioca starch
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup evaporated cane juice or sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 Tb. vanilla extract
1/2 cup hot coffee
In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop batter in lightly greased mini-muffin pans with small scoop. Bake for 10 minutes at 325° F. Let brownies stand in muffin pans for several minutes to set up. After setting, tumble the brownies out onto a cooling rack.
These freeze fabulously! (You could easily make a double or triple batch, freeze lots, and have ready-to-eat chocolaty brownie bites.)
Fact: You can stir the batter as much as you would like to! This is because there is not any gluten, which, when over-stirred, could stiffen the batter and make the brownies tough!
