With Easter just around the corner there is no better time to make these Gluten Free Decadent Chocolate Brownies! They’re truly the BEST gluten free brownies I have EVER tasted and make for a fabulous Easter gift.
The original recipe comes from Kirsten Tibballs “Chocolate” Cookbook which I slightly modified and adapted to be gluten free. I also need to give credit to my husband for making this week’s recipe. He has been nothing short of amazing lately, cooking, cleaning and caring for both Lyla and myself while I’ve been struck down with a back injury.
Fingers crossed I will be on the mend soon and back in the kitchen!

So it’s time for another product review and this time I’m reviewing Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix – Gluten Free.
Jesse brought the mix home from the shops the other week and I had a chocolate craving, so thought why not bake brownies? The packaging mentions adding other ingredients like peanut butter, chocolate chips and walnuts to add some extra texture and flavour. I chose to add some pecans to mix it up!
Pros for Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix
– Only two ingredients required from your pantry (eggs & butter)
– Option to individualise the brownies with an extra ingredient or two
– Simple one step recipe that only requires one bowl
– Takes 10 minutes to prepare and bakes in 30 minutes
– The brownies are moist with a rich but not overpowering chocolate taste
– Brownies remain fresh for 3-4 days
Cons for Bob’s Red Mill Brownie Mix
– The brownie mixture although moist inside becomes quite dry on top
– There is no guidance regarding the amount of extra ingredients you should add to the brownie mixture
Finally, would I bake these brownies again? Yes, but only if the mixture was heavily discounted at the supermarket and I didn’t have time to make one of my own brownie recipes for visitors.
Please note all opinions are my own and I purchased this product of my own accord.
Growing up it was rare to have a packet mix cake or muffins in our house. Both my mum and grandmother were whizzes in the kitchen and the reason why I love baking.
Living in such a fast paced society, I realise not everyone has the luxury of time or motivation to bake from scratch though. So with a growing range of gluten free packet mixes available in the supermarket, I’ve decided to have a go at baking and reviewing a packet mix product.
For my first review, I chose to bake Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownie Mix having eyed off the product in the supermarket for a few months. Rather than providing you with the recipe, I thought I would talk about the pros and cons of the product, but please know I have not received any form of payment or sponsorship for my product review.
Pros for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– Only 2 ingredients required from your pantry (eggs & butter)
– Easy recipe: simply whisk together all ingredients in one bowl
– Takes 10 minutes to prepare
– Bakes in 15-20 minutes
– The caramel flavour is spot on
– Lasts for 4 days without going dry
Cons for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– The caramel fudge bits are too small for my liking
– Could pass for cake more than a dense brownie
Finally, would I bake these brownies again? Yes I would.

I’m a big believer in telling your loved ones how much they mean to you every day, rather than on a designated day once a year. BUT, I still celebrate Valentines Day. Call it a hazard of growing up working in a florist.
So what better way to celebrate Valentines Day with a special someone than by baking these Red Velvet Brownie Bites?! I know red velvet isn’t the “trendy” flavour at the moment, but it is the go-to for Valentines Day being red and all.
I also distinctly remember baking red velvet cupcakes for Jesse when we had just started dating, so it’s a flavour I always think of when it comes to love. Might I add, it’s pretty damn tasty too!
If you like these red velvet brownies you might also like my Red Velvet Cheesecake, or for something not red velvet flavoured, what about my Linzer Cookies in a love heart shape?
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentines Day for Sunday!
Nutella has been such a big hit these past 12 months, so I finally got on the bandwagon and made these Gluten Free Nutella Brownies, after a little nudge from my nutella loving husband of course!
The recipe comes from Nigella Lawson’s latest book, Simply Nigella and required zero modifications to be Gluten Free. Added bonus, the recipe only requires 4 ingredients (3 if you omit the icing sugar for decoration) and is super quick to make.
Perfect sneaky morning treat, or in my case, to take to my first mothers group.
Happy Wednesday guys!
