Emeril's Gluten Free, Dairy Free Brownie

I am always looking for healthy and easy recipes to make with the little guy that I nanny M-F. Today I was on a hunt for a brownie recipe that didn't require butter or eggs ...

In walks Mr. Emeril Lagasse's Gluten Free, Dairy Free Brownie recipe to the rescue! Little T and I whipped up the ingredients in record time, topped the mix with chocolate chips, a couple of marshmallows,
chocolate sauce, and popped it into the oven. We probably made them un-gluten free and dairy free, but you can try making some of these brownies with your little one sans extra choco & mallow!

Yield: 24 brownies
Vegetable spray or Smart Balance for greasing pan
1 ¼ cups applesauce
1 cup cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 mashed banana
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup brown rice flour
2 cups vegan chocolate chips or mixture of any vegan chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F.

Grease an 8x8 pan using either vegetable spray or Smart Balance* (butter substitute)

In a large mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Pour mixture into prepared pan.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan comes out clean.

The marshmallows were added when there was three minutes left to cook. The choco sauce was drizzled after the brownie was served. Yummy!
