Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When I made these I used 5 tablespoons of cocoa. Next time I may try 6, but it was still pretty chocolatey with 5 tablespoons. These are very moist and the texture is a little different than a regular brownie, but really pretty tasty.
I suppose these brownies would be considered gluten free and they do have 2 1/2 grams of fiber (I think) per brownie.
I had my card group do a taste test without telling them what was in them, but told them there was no flour in them. No one could guess what was used to replace the flour. They said the texture was a little bit different, but they tasted good.
