Fudgy Brownies with Simple Nutella Ice Cream

We had friends over for dinner & dessert last night, it was a blast!  I experimented with a few desserts and tried it out on them, thanks Jess & Lloyd for being my "test subjects" :)  I have tried a gluten free brownie mix from the store, it was pretty good, but I liked this "fudgy" version better.  Anyways we thought the gluten-free desserts turned out great, so I am sharing the recipes with ya :)

Fudgy Brownies

1/2 cup almond meal (or just buy raw almonds & pulse in a food processor or blender until fine)

  • 1/3 cup gluten free all purpose flour (I used Red Mill)
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar, or xylitol
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

Mix the dry ingredients together.  In a sauce pan melt the butter & 1 cup of the semi-sweet chips, stirring until smooth.  Remove from heat, allow to cool for 5  minutes.  Mix in vanilla, then add chocolate mixture to dry ingredients.  Last add the 2 eggs separately and mix in the remaining 1 cup of semi-sweet chips.  Pour into a square 8x8 baking dish.  Cook at 325 degrees for about 35 minutes.  The brownies should be slightly puffed all over and a tooth pick should come out moist, but clean.  Allow to cool to room temp & serve.

The original recipe I adapted this from :

Simple Nutella Ice Cream

2 cups nutella (chocolate hazlenut spread)
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Mix in a blender until smooth.  Pour into ice cream maker, run for 40 minutes-following machine's instructions, serve immediately.  Really easy & tasty.
