I do not have a gluten intolerance. Neither does Wayne nor does Callum. In fact, I never even intended for these brownies to be gluten free! I simply wanted to challenge myself to come up with a recipe to use some of the vast stock of almond meal I have for making macarons. The fact that it is gluten free and can be gifted to coeliac friends for birthdays and Christmas gifts is a bonus.
Normally, when I make brownies, I always chuck in some nuts. Mostly pecans and walnuts. With using the almond flour (in spite of its name, all it is is finely ground almonds), you still get that nutty taste without any of the nuts themselves. A nice compromise since I made this while Callum napped yesterday and the rustle of a bag of nuts in the cupboard is proven to stir him from his sleeping. I'm pleased with how they turned out. They retained their moisture even without added water, I'm thinking that had something to do with the silicone muffin cases. They also formed a nice crusty, perfect brownie top. Mmmm.
