Instructions

  • Chop the chocolate into big pieces and set aside. I like to use a breadknife for this.
    Chopping the chocolate
  • Set the oven temperature to 170C/350F. Measure everything out into the five bowls.
    Five bowls of the different brownie ingredients
  • Add a sprinkle of water to the pan. This will help the paper to stick.
    Adding water to the pan.
  • Place the parchment paper on the pan. Cut the edges if needed.
    Parchment paper on the tray.
  • Throughly mix the dry ingredients with a whisk so that everything is evenly distributed. This is very important when working with xanthan gum because a small amount is very powerful and needs to be mixed properly.
    Mixing the dry ingredients together.
  • Mix all the bowls together with the whisk except the chocolate pieces until nicely incorporated and no lumps.
    Everything mixed except the chocolate.
  • Switch to a spatula once it thickens and mix in the chocolate pieces
    Adding the chocolate.
  • Bake for approx. 35 minutes or when it reaches 165°F/75°C on a thermometer.

Notes

Always measure ingredients with a digital scale if you have one because it's more accurate and will always provide better results.
