Fudgy, Homemade Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Brownies!
You guys. You guys! I am so so so excited about these brownies.
I’m not even exaggerating saying I was tearing up when I tasted the first one out of the pan. The first bite crackled as it hit my tongue and then dissolved into a dense, chewy, moist, fudgy bite of perfect brownie.
But why all the dramatic tearing up, you ask?
Here it is: I struggle with restrictive-diet foods. I hate making something that is only “ok”, or even “good, for being gluten free”. I currently don’t have anyone in my immediate family on restrictive diets, but I have so many friends and loved ones who are. And it breaks my heart to only have half-way things to offer them.
Food matters to me.
Beyond nutrition and basic needs, food is important. Food cements our memories and our experiences, infusing them with an unforgettable taste and aroma that have the power to bring up the face of our beloved grandma with just a bite of her famous cookie recipe. Or a memory of the day we gave birth to our firstborn, because we ate spicy thai food that morning.
However your experience looks… food matters.
And even when I can’t serve the people I care about my favorite treats, I want to serve you something great. Something memory making. Something that makes you forget that there is any other option of that type of treat. A just-as-good treat, if not better that the memory you have, instead of a good-enough treat that just barely reaches the edge of a craving.
