Breakfast Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
Liked these pretty well. They turned out much more cake-like than brownie-like. After reading the reviews, I decided to add the 1/2 c cocoa powder for flavor. Many said it was dry or dried out quickly. So I also cut the flax meal (which is quite absorbent) to 1/2 c and added another egg and additional almond milk until the consistency was more batter-like. I am gluten-free so used a gluten-free flour. They came out quite moist and have stayed that way in an air-tight container for 3 days so far, though there's not much left. Will make again, but definitely still needs something. They are really good with almond butter spread on top. I may try adding it to the batter next time. Maybe another banana, maybe some chopped nuts, maybe coconut. Since it's for breakfast, and I'd like it to be relatively healthy, I don't want to go the chocolate chip route as others have.

Amazing Gluten-Free Layer Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Made these for the first time last night. They are YUMMY and turned out really well based on some of my own adjustments and reading other reviews here. First, and I'm surprised only one other reviewer mentioned this, I had to make these in a 8X8 pan. I can't even imagine how anyone makes it 9X13 unless she doubles everything. There simply aren't enough ingredients. I measured one cup of crushed Trader Joe's gluten-free ginger snaps. Then I melted 5-6 T of unsalted butter and mixed it with the ginger snaps and 2/3 of the coconut. I pressed all of that onto the parchment paper in the bottom of the pan and then layered according to the recipe (using chopped peanuts). I think next time, I will take another's suggestion and use toffee chips. I don't care for the butterscotch all that much. I'd also love to try pecans in place of the peanuts. Many reviewers mentioned the overly sticky results, so I used 1/2 of a can of the sweetened condensed milk. It was PERFECT! They were amazing right out of the oven, if you didn't mind eating them with a spoon :) I let them sit overnight to cool completely, and this morning I was able to cut them into bars quickly and easily. They hold together and are not too sticky. I only wish the chips had melted more. The bars do crumble some when you bite into them which I think may be a direct result of the chips not really melting much and holding all of the other stuff together. May try microwaving them ever so slightly next time.
