These brownies are gluten-free, oh-so-delicious and super easy to make. They’re fudgy and chocolatey, with just the right amount of sweetness. This recipe is adapted from my Grandmas; I’ve made them gluten-free and added some chocolate chips because you can’t have too much chocolate.
My grandma didn’t enjoy cooking or baking, but there was always a tin of Plumy grandmas brownies ready to have after lunch with vanilla ice cream. They’re fudgy and chocolatey and hold their shape nicely, with the added nuts contrasting to the soft, gooey chocolatey texture.
A perfect sweet treat for any time of day, that are so quick and easy to make all in one pot. You’ll be eating them in no time.
