I recently went to one of my friend’s Christmas dinner.
She took it upon herself to cook up a feast for 24 of us – no easy feat. If you follow me on the ‘gram, you would’ve seen the postings on stories what an amazing job she did. Different slow roasted meats, roasted root veggies, golden slice, wild rice (LOVE), stuffed butternut squash, gravy, red cabbage, the works. So naturally when she asked if anyone volunteered to bring anything, my hand figuratively shot up in the group chat – I’d be bringing dessert.
I wanted to make something that would be easy for people to grab, not necessarily needing plates (ie less washing up) and that screamed of festive cheer. Gingerbread cookies? Nah, it’s been done and dusted. Gingerbread brownies? Now we’re talking. Who doesn’t love chocolate?
Plus, it also meant one bowl (which I’m ALL about), no cookie cutters, no rolling, nothing. Something easy that took close to no time to whip up – unlike Helen, who started to cook for us from 9am that day. Such a trooper.
These gingerbread brownies are:
flourless and gluten free
moist – yes, MOIST. get over it, it’s a great word.
