Saturday Creation Spotlighting "Good Girl Gone Wife"

                                                  

Hello, Consider Me Inspired readers! My name is Alex, and I blog over at Good Girl Gone Wife(among other places -- I may have a blogging addiction). I'm a preschool teacher with an Etsy shop on the side, and my husband and I sumo wrestle for fun (yes, really, but not with the diaper things -- just in whatever we happen to be wearing when he yells "SUMO!!!!"). I'm the undefeated champion :)


I'm so excited to be featured for the Saturday Creations Spotlight! Thanks so much Amy!

I LOVE DIY anything, and would eventually love for my home to be filled with as many DIY things as possible. But since I also love to cook and bake, and my DIY addiction can't really be fed on my current budget, I decided to share a recipe with you today!

I've been doing a gluten-free elimination diet this month to see if it helped my digestion at all, and I've noticed that most recipes for gluten-free baked goods require several types of flour, and/or xantham gum, and/or guar gum...I think you're picking up what I'm putting down. It's a lot, and gluten-free flour is EXPENSIVE...I can't imagine having to buy all those different flours at once! With that in mind, I wanted to create a recipe that only needed one gluten-free flour, and was tasty and satisfying. I like to think I've done that :)

Gluten-Free Mug Brownie Recipe



Ingredients 


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp pure maple syrup (I'm talking the real stuff here, not Mrs. Butterworth)
  • 2tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3.5 tablespoons rice flour (I used Bob's Red Mil)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of salt

Step 1 - melt the coconut oil

Measure out the coconut oil into a mug.


Microwave on high for 45 seconds. If your oil isn't melted by then, microwave in 5 second increments until melted.


Step 2 - add the other ingredients

Pretty self-explanatory. Put all the ingredients in the mug and stir it up.


The batter will look a little lumpy, and that's okay.

Step 3 - nuke it

Cook the brownie in the microwave for 60 seconds. And there you have it -- your brownie is done!


The texture is a little different than a traditional brownie, but not really in a bad way. It's warm, chocolatey, and delicious.

I actually ended up eating mine by pouring a little milk on top. It gave it more of a pudding-like texture, and it was awesome! It tasted like Coco Wheats, which is NEVER a bad thing :)

Thanks again to Amy for featuring me! Make sure to stop by Good Girl Gone Wife and say hi!
