Chocolate Truffle Brownies (Gluten Free)

These brownies are the other gluten free dessert I brought to Daniele's. I got the recipe from Quinoa 365. They are made with quinoa flour, which I find has a bit of a nutty taste.  If you aren't gluten free and don't have quinoa flour, these could be made with regular flour. As I said before, I was a bit skeptical about making gluten-free desserts and how they would turn out but my friends said these were good.  I liked them too ( then again I like anything chocolate )

4oz unsweetened chocolate (4 squares)- oops I used semi sweet
3/4 cup butter
 1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups quinoa flour
1/4 cup milk
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

-preheat oven to 350f
-line a brownie pan with parchman paper or grease and flour it
-melt chocolate and butter together (either in a saucepan or  in the microwave) and then add in sugar, stirring constantly. If you used a saucepan, transfer to a bowl.
-add in eggs and vanilla and blend well
- add in flour and milk
-mix in nuts
- pour into pan and bake for approx 22 minutes*
- let cool in pan for 15 minutes before cutting into 16 squares ( or 32 for smaller brownies)

*The recipe says to be sure not to overbake.The truffle/ness of these browneis comes from a moist, chewy inside. I baked them for about 30 minutes and they still had that texture.
