Gluten Free Brownies

I made the most delicious, chewy, fudgy brownies last night.  I got the recipe from Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen site.  The recipe is from What Life Dishes Out.

The original recipe makes enough for an 8 x 8 pan of brownies.  If I'm going to make brownies from scratch, I want more that an 8 x 8 inch pan of brownies for my trouble, so I increased the recipe by 50% and used a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.  And I wasn't paying attention to the part about only melting half of the chocolate chips into the batter, so this version is extra chocolaty.

Also, I'm listing the directions I actually used because I wasn't paying attention.  (Give me a break, I was tired!)  Please see the original recipe at What Life Dishes Out for the proper mixing instructions.

Gluten Free Brownies
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
3  eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 9 x 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips one minute at a time (on high), then stirring.  When they are more than half melted, melt for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time.  When the chocolate chips are completely melted, stir in both sugars.  Stir in butter and vanilla.  Crack eggs into a small bold and mix lightly.  Temper eggs by briskly mixing in some of the warm chocolate mixture.  Mix tempered eggs into chocolate mixture. 

On a sheet of waxed paper, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and xanthan gum.  Stir into the chocolate mixture. 

Spread out in baking dish and bake for 35 minutes.  Allow to cool before serving.
