Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Well, I tried and I failed.  That is my story and I am sticking with it.  About a year ago, I decided to divide my blogging time with two blogs: one just for gluten free foods and this one for everything else.  I found that I wasn’t cut out for that much online time.  So, I am back to just one blog and you will find that there is a mix of gluten-free and regular food here from now on.  As a “welcome back to sanity” celebration, I am starting this week off with Gluten Free Peanut Butter Brownie Bites (I’m using the term “sanity” lightly, of course).

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Brownie Bites with Chocolate Chips made in a mini muffin tin (egg free)

This recipe was approved by my gluten-eaters, but I will put regular substitutions in the recipe below.  [Most of my recipes from here on out will have something like that in the notes so they can be switched from gluten free to regular, or vice versa.]  It’s also egg-free and can be dairy-free if you use dairy-free chocolate chips.  If you have a peanut allergy, use sunflower butter.  Skadoosh!  This is an allergy free home run recipe!Gluten Free Peanut Butter Brownie Bites with Chocolate Chips made in a mini muffin tin (egg free)
