Gluten Free Mama Pumpkin Brownies

Recently I ordered some gluten free all purpose flour from Azure Standard. This was a new brand for me, Gluten Free Mama- Almond Blend. They make a coconut blend that I also intend to try later on.

To try out this flour I decided to make Pumpkin Brownies from the Gluten Free Mama web page.

These brownies are super moist and have an almost pudding like center even when totally cooked. The texture is not of a typical brownie at all so don’t don’t expect a chewy cake consistency. These were simple to make and delicious.

The Recipe

Original Recipe Yield 16 squares

Ingredients

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup butter or dairy free margarine
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
***
¾ cup Mama’s Almond Blend or Coconut Blend Flour
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking power
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. xanthan gum
***********************************
Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients
8 oz cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1-3 Tbsp. milk (dairy, rice, nut, soy)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease and flour 8×8 inch cake pan.
Using a double boiler, slowly melt chocolate chips and butter.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and xanthan gum.

In large bowl, combine pumpkin puree, sugars and vanilla. Mix well. Pour melted chocolate mixture into bowl. Mix well. Slowly add flour mixture until combined. Mix well.

Spread batter into pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely. Remove brownies from pan by placing a plate over the top of pan and flipping the pan upside down. Then place a serving plate on the top of the brownies and flip again to have brownies right side up.

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until combined. Add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until frosting reaches a spreadable and creamy consistency. Spread frosting generously over top of brownies. Cut into squares and serve.

Quibbymade Made is a work at home mom shop on Facebook. The owners name is Melissa and she is a very talented woman and mother. She makes a variety of products ranging from body care, menstrual care and household items.

The three products featured in the picture above are reusable sandwich bag, reusable snack bags and Booty Balm.

My favorite product so far are the snack bags. They are well constructed and the perfect size for my little man. They have a velcro closure and are machine washable!

The Booty Balm is another great product and is for the diaper area but can be used on irritated skin anywhere on the body as well. All natural ingredients such as calendula and shea butter make this balm a delight to use.

I plan to purchase some mama cloth from her in the future when the need arises and I will be sure to write a follow up post about those when the time comes.
