Gluten Free Chocolate Dipped Brownies
Back in January I posted a recipe for Layered Brownie Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars .That recipe received glowing reviews all around. After I developed my 30 Second Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough a few days ago the wheels in my head began to spin for some additional fun uses of this dough. This recipe is the result. These Brownies are ridiculously good.
What could be more delicious than brownies topped with cookie dough? AND then also dipped in chocolate. Nothing. Ok, nothing maybe aside from my crack brownie recipe, those are pretty good too.
To make this recipe Sugar Free leave out the Chocolate Chips and follow the directions to use the Stevia and Xyltol. Coconut Flour will not work in this recipe- if you are looking to make an alteration for the I suggest using another nut or seed flour with a mild flavor.
