December has begun . . . Cold nights and cozy almost winter days . . .
Lots of wool and decorating . . .
Board games . . .
And toasty fires to warm our dinners outside . . .
Where we live it is cold enough to need the fire, but still warm enough to eat outside . . .
And then there were these . . .
Chocolate Carob Fudge Brownies . . .
Gluten and Dairy Free
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a large bowl combine:
1 + 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil melted
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a separate bowl combine:
1 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup carob powder
1 teaspoon guar gum
1 teaspoon baking powder
Mix dry ingredients with wet.
Pour into an oiled loaf pan.
Bake at 300 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes
or until the middle is pretty steady.
Let cool before serving.
I love this time of year . . .
