Gluten Free Brownie Bites

Brownies are my favorite.
I love how chewy, chocolate-y, soft, moist, decadent, sweet and delicious they can be. I love them frosted. I love them plain. I love them warm. I love them standing in the rain, on a train...

Brownies are amazing in any form, but when baked into perfect, little bit size pieces? They are the best. I brought these brownies to my brother's graduation party in June and they disappeared quickly. I even got asked for the recipe.

These brownies are super cute and they taste even better than they look.

Yum. I need another one of these, like right now.

These brownies are especially good when topped with a rich, chocolate frosting (recipe below). Go ahead and make them and fall in love with them, yourself.

  1. OMG that frosting! I just want to bite into right now!

  2. To quote Elle above me, "OMG that frosting!" That was the same thing I was thinking when I saw these pictures. These all look amazing!

  3. It was so great to find your blog through Gluten Free Fridays at Vegetarian Mama! I love how moist these brownies look. And they don't seem too hard to make. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you have a fabulous weekend! :D
