You definitely need to stop and read this post. These Fudge Brownies from Ardenne Farm are SO DELICIOUS!

Back in April when I was at the Gluten & Allergen Free Expo, I came across the Ardenne Farm booth which was full of propylene glycol free baking mixes!

They so generously gave me some stuff to try and this was my first!

Their Fudge Brownie Mix:

The ingredients:

Cane Sugar, Cocoa, White Rice Flour, Brown Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Whole Dried Eggs, Cassava Flour, Baking Powder (Corn Starch, Baking Soda, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Salt, Natural Vanilla Flavor.

They're also:

  • gluten free
  • free of artificial colors
  • free of artificial flavors
  • lactose free

I was so happy about these propylene glycol free mixes that I didn't notice the dried eggs in the mix. I can't remember if I was allergy tested for eggs (I would think so since that's a common allergen), but I've found out on my own from eating hard boiled eggs that my body HATES them. At least when what I'm eating is 100% egg and I have a couple of them.

I was still willing to give these a try, though. And instead of using two eggs to bake the mix, I used chia gel. That way, there was less egg than there would be otherwise.

So, I got my chia gel ready... (you can read about how to make that here)

And let the mixing begin!

I put the brownies in the pre-heated oven, hoping for the best with the egg substitute...

And took them out after 35 minutes:

OH. MY. GOSH.

They were unexpectedly moist and just absolutely perfect! My stomach didn't even get bothered by them!

I highly recommend this brownie mix!

I ate them way faster than I should have, haha. They were so tempting!

A big thank you to the folks at Ardenne Farm! You rock! Thank you for making such a tasty brownie mix. It's the first time in a long time that I've had guilt free brownies.
