After getting the worst stomach problems and uncontrollable gases from experimenting with gluten-free substitutes last year I then haven’t spent much time at that section. Most brands and products there are crap with tons of additives that doesn’t make any sense. If you’re not in a real Health Food Store then I would tell you to not bother and just go grain-free.
This weekend though, I went by to see if anything had changed.
The gluten-free section in the store has grown since a year back, and there’s now more options to choose from. Still, many crappy product I wouldn’t want my child near… But there was this one organic brand Ewa Lie, that caught my eye and got to follow me home.
But I didn’t realize until I got home that you’re supposed to add: 200g of butter, 1 1/4 dl milk and 2 eggs. Of course I had to try to making these brownies vegan, which I managed, and they turned out to be really juicy and d e l i c i o u s!
EWA LIE VEGAN BROWNIES
1Tbs Organic Coconut Oil
1 1/4 DL Organic Vegan Milk of Choice (I used Rice Milk)
~ 1/2 DL Boiled Water
Reading the ingredient list I realize that the batter already has a thickener, and I’ve learned from earlier experiences when making dough that you should mix in some hot water to activate it. So I tried it and the mixture became sticky and thick without the need of eggs (which is a bad Food Combo too!).
For more products by Ewa Lie and where to buy.
