Because our family eats gluten free we don't use white flour. When baking I will often use a gluten free brand that is already mixed or a rice flour blend I have made. But the other day my friend (thanks Candace) gave me a copy of a recipe that used Quinoa flour. I was so excited to try something new. Hey, when your calendar is empty it's the little things. ;) So I'm here to encourage you to ditch the white flour, the white sugar (as much as possible) and use healthier ingredients that make having a brownie OK. Well at least better. Ha! I made these and let me just say,"YAHOOOOOOO!" Enough said. To make the flour just buy some quinoa and run it through your food processor or even your blender will work. Also, I used organic peanut butter instead of almond butter because I need the good fat from it.
