I was working my way through the Cook’s Illustrated website the other night and came across an amazing recipe for Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies. As soon as I laid eyes on that recipe I knew I had to create a high protein, gluten free version. While my husband enjoys all of my gluten free chocolate recipes, this is his fave. He even left a special love note on the fridge for me late last night after sampling them.
Of course this is also a dairy free recipe for those of you who are learning how to cook without dairy; and has no agave in it for those avoiding agave. If you wish to try out other permutations to accommodate your individual needs, feel free to do so; just be sure to leave a comment and let us know if your substitutions worked!
