Preheat oven to 350˚F and grease a 8'' X 8'' pan.


Melt the butter in the microwave. Add in the chopped chocolate and stir until it's melted. Add the cocoa powder and oil and mix to combine.


Beat the eggs in a mixer with a paddle until they are a bit frothy.


Add the sugar and the vanilla and beat until smooth.


Add the butter/chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.


Whisk together the brown rice flour, almond meal, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add to the mixer. Scrape down the bowl, then mix until combined.


Pour into the pan and smooth so it is even distributed throughout the pan.


Bake for 10 minutes, then turn. Bake another 10-15, until a toothpick comes out mostly clean (err on the side of moist...overcooked, dry brownies are the opposite of what you want. You want soft, moist brownies)


Cool on a rack until cool to the touch (I know it's difficult to resist the temptation when your whole house will be smelling of chocolate, but if you try to cut them too soon -and I know this from persoanl experience- they will fall apart).


Cut, serve, and enjoy!

Cooks' note:
I did a recipe and a half in the photos (why there's 3 eggs) and cut the brownies pretty small because they were for a party having other desserts. I consider the 9 brownies being about 2" X 2". Also to grind the almonds I use an espresso bean grinder. You can also by store bought almond meal. These save really well in a sealed container for a few days.

I've taken my regular gluten free brownies to a new level by adding espresso. Chocolate and coffee are made for each other. The espresso makes them even richer, more chocolatey, not to mention the espresso flavor gives it a bit more complexity. For this version, you simply add 3 TBSP instant espresso to my other recipe. The espresso addition makes them even more irresistible. This recipe ..
