PB Mocha Brownies (Gluten Free)

I attended the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo and met with Ardenne Farm. The table was set up with different cookies, cake mixes, muffin mixes, and other gluten free mixes that just looked amazing. So I could not wait to have my family try one of their delicious mixes.  We decided on the Brownies because we are brownie experts.  They were chewy, moist, chocolatey and oh my gosh, you will never miss the non gluten-free kind.  These brownies were just as easy to make as other mixes too.  We expected reducing our gluten intake would mean eating foods less appetizing but this has proved us wrong.

My kids loved these.  They did not even see a difference in them compared to the other mixes.  In fact, they said these were better and “yummy.”  This will make it so much easier to reduce our gluten intake due to my youngest daughter’s gluten intolerance.
