Preparing the gluten-free brownies

Tip :) For our recipes or for weighing the flour, only use a kitchen scale.

  1. Briefly roast the walnuts (or pecans) in a pan without oil and chop roughly. Be careful: the nuts burn quickly, so it's best to stick with them!
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and simmer for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. The butter should be lightly browned, i.e. it should have a light brown color. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Melt the chocolate over a water bath and let it cool slightly.
  4. Mix the eggs with the sugar for about 6 minutes until creamy. Briefly stir in the browned butter and melted chocolate.
  5. Mix cassava flour, corn starch, xanthan gum, psyllium husk flour, salt and cocoa powder in a separate bowl and add to the chocolate mixture and fold in. Just enough so that everything is mixed well.
  6. Set aside a small handful of the chopped nuts and fold in the rest as well.
  7. Grease a rectangular shape measuring approx. 24 cm x 24 cm or line it with packing paper and fill the brownie batter into it. Smooth the surface and sprinkle with the remaining nuts.
  8. Bake the brownies in a preheated oven at 160 degrees, top and bottom heat, for about 25 minutes. Do a stick test, if there is too much dough stuck, continue baking the brownies for another 1-2 minutes.
  9. Let cool, sprinkle with cocoa powder and serve.
