Did you know that February 10th is National Have a Brownie Day? Not that we needed an excuse to chow down on brownies but today, it’s encouraged! Traditional brownie recipes call for eggs but thankfully, we know that eggs can easily be substituted for ground flax seeds, chia seeds, or commercial vegan egg replacers. But if you’re vegan and gluten-free, you might think that finding your perfect brownie will be a little more difficult — luckily, that’s not the case. There are so many different types of gluten-free flours that are now available in most grocery stores, making gluten-free baking more hassle-free than ever — and for some brownie recipes, you don’t even need flour! Check out these Adzuki Fudge Brownies to see what we mean.
