This is the five pound bag of almond flour that was sent in the mail to me by a wonderful cook and gluten free blogger. Does everyone know how healthy almonds are? It's wonderful to make something for Richard that not only tastes good, but is good for him too.
These are the gluten free brownies that I made for Richard from the pecans and almond flour.
This is a cookbook published in 1967 which only has recipes from beans! It also was given to me in 1983, the year I was married, by one of my sister's good friends when she found out that Richard was on a gluten free diet. The recipe for the brownies is in this cookbook. Thanks, Judy!
Here is the recipe: Brownies (says it makes 2 dozen, but I cut mine into 15 pieces)
1/3 cup shortening
2 squares chocolate (I used 1/3 cup chocolate chips)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten (Eggs from my Daddy too!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 cup almond flour (recipe book calls for SOY flour)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Melt shortening and chocolate in double boiler over hot water. (I don't have double boiler, I use a stainless steel bowl over simmering water, it works just fine.) Cool slightly, then add remaining ingredients in the order given and mix well. (Just mix it up with a fork.)
Spread evenly into greased pan (9x9x2 inch pan) and bake in 325 degree oven for 35 minutes or until done. Cool before cutting. ENJOY!
Now here is a song that I have just heard that my son told me about. It's by the Zombies! It was in a movie a few years back called "The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou." (Never saw the movie but I am told that is why more people are familar with it. ) Give it a listen and let me know what you think. It's wonderful to hear someone who can actually SING, isn't it? You can't fool someone if it is a capella...
