Review: Simply Organic Brownies

Brownies.  They can be simple or complex, fudgey or cakey. They can be frosted or unfrosted.  They can have nuts or they can be nut-free.  How do you like your brownies?  I have simple needs.  I just need my brownie here, right in front of me on a plate and ready for the taking.


Simply Organic has a super-simple brownie mix, only requiring that I add 2 eggs and melted butter.  Vegan?  No worries, just use 1/4 cup soy butter and powdered egg replacer to replace the eggs.  The batter was thick and was tough to spread into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan.  I had to show the batter who was boss!  The box recommends baking at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick or a knife comes out clean.  My oven took a little longer, but it may have not been up to temperature when I put the brownies in.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified cane sugar, organic brown rice flour, organic Fair Trade Certified cocoa powder (processed with alkali), organic potato starch, natural flavor (maltodextrin, enzyme-modified cocoa butter), xanthan gum, sea salt, baking soda.

Once the brownies were out of the oven, I let them cool in the pan on a wire rack for several hours.  Then, the fun part!


These brownies did not disappoint!  I considered frosting them with cream cheese frosting, but decided to  try them “naked” first.  I am glad I did!  These were definitely more on the fudgey side, my favorite!  I ended up spreading a touch of almond butter on top for a sinful dessert treat!

Simply Organic gluten-free baking mixes can be purchased on their website or in stores across the US – click here and enter your zip code on the right to find them near you. How do you like your brownies?
