These wheat-free brownies made with oat and sweet rice flours can hold their own against traditional recipes. If you love peanut butter cups, swirl peanut, almond, or even cashew butter into the batter to echo the flavors.
What to buy: Oat flour is technically gluten-free but is often processed in facilities with gluten-containing grains, so make sure the label specifies gluten-free oat flour.
Sweet rice flour, also known as glutinous rice flour or mochiko, is produced from sticky rice grains and is gluten-free. It’s available at Asian markets in the starch section. Regular rice flour, which is produced from long-grain rice, will not yield the same results.
Xanthan gum is produced from corn sugar and is used as a thickener, stabilizer, and dough binder. You can find it in the baking aisle of natural foods stores.
