Gluten Free Brownies

Ahhh there is nothing better than warm brownies, especially for being restricted to normal brownies. Since my family has gone gluten free, my brother and I decided to make a dessert that we all could enjoy like we used to. I came across this recipe in my new favorite cookbook The Healthy Gluten-Free Lifestyle and decided I had to make it because the picture looked amazing. 

These fudgey brownies are the best brownies I have ever tasted…seriously! The taste is almost an exact replica of real brownies, and you cant even tell that there is no gluten, dairy or eggs in them! The chocolate chips provide an amazing oozing chocolatey texture to every single bite, adding to the already rich flavor.
