Gluten Free Baileys Brownies

 

Processed with MOLDIV

I wanted to start testing new gluten-free recipes for this summer’s farmers market.   I continue to get more requests for bake goods that are gluten-free, so I was on the hunt for the perfect treat.   I have an amazing recipe for a flour-less chocolate cake, so a brownie recipe seemed like a logical next step.  Since it was also close to St Patrick Day I thought it couldn’t hurt to add Baileys Irish Cream.  How  could it possibly be bad if I added this amazing liquor.

These brownies are so simple.  They are easy and very quick to whip up, plus they have the added bonus of being gluten-free.  You can omit the Baileys if you choose, but it does add a nice flavour complement to the almond.  If you are short on time you can also omit the chocolate ganache, although I highly discourage you to do so, as this was my favourite part of the brownie.  Well I think I have found an excellent recipe for all those gluten-free fans that visit the farmers market.
