During Passover we are forbidden from eating chometz. Because of this we have to find creative ways of enjoying the foods we are used to. This recipe is a flourless version of the classic chocolate brownie. I mean, come on, what is a Jewish holiday without brownies? Here is our easy gluten free Passover brownie recipe.
This Recipe Is Gluten Free and Dairy Free
Most of the Passover meals are meat meals. According to strict kosher laws we cannot serve dairy desserts after meat meals. So not only do we have to stay away from chometz during Passover but for most of the festival meals we have to steer clear of dairy as well. That is not a problem for us because these brownies are dairy-free and can be served at any meal. This recipe is also gluten free because it uses potato starch in place of flour.

Potato starch is a potato derivative that is used to provide texture and not flavor. These brownies will not taste like a potato.
Yes they are. The amount of chocolate chips and oil in this recipe make the brownies have a fudgy texture. You can make the brownies even fudgier by ending the baking time closer to 20 minutes. Ending the baking time closer to 25 minutes will yield a cakier brownie.
