Twin treats - one flourless, one not

Nyleve | Feb 7, 2007 11:45 AM

So here's my challenge. I want to make a thank-you gift to my friends at a local animal clinic who performed surgery on my tiny bantam rooster, Frick. They did it out of the goodness of their hearts and would only accept repayment of their actual expenses. I have promised to make them all some delicious treats to share.

Problem. The one friend who was the instigator of this act of ridiculous kindness is celiac and cannot eat wheat. So I was thinking of making, like, two versions of the same thing. Brownies, for instance, or some kind of cookies. One without flour, the other with. I don't have a good flourless brownie recipe. Any suggestions folks? Or something else that I could make that would be transportable and share-able? If the flourless thing is really good I wouldn't need to make a wheat version.

I already have a good flourless chocolate cake recipe, but it would be a little too frou-frou for the clinic environment.

P.S. Frick is recuperating well in a cage in the garage with his partner Frack. He will now have only one eye, but we're just glad he's still alive. Considering a tiny eyepatch...
