Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger -- The Good Eatah

I've been meaning to post about The Good Eatah for nearly 3 weeks. Needless to say, I'm a little behind!

I chose "The Good Eatah" for this month's Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger Event (started by Sea, over at Book of Yum) because she has such a great variety of naturally gluten free recipes! The Good Eatah shares her gluten free and dairy free recipes on a regular basis. She also has an adorable dog named Henry, and she's a new aunt!!

There were so many recipes I wanted to try! Her zucchini fritter-tatas, her cranberry walnut bread, her spanish tortilla (I still may have to add this to my menu soon!), her apricot chews, it's endless!

I finally settled on The Good Eatah's German Chocolate Brownies, a creation she entered into a Pamela's products recipe contest!

Why this didn't win first place, I'll never know!

This recipe is based on using a brownie mix (or your favorite brownie recipe) and then adding a german chocolate streudel topping!

Oh. My. Word.

Delicious! These brownies are so yummy! I actually used a mix from Gluten Free Pantry, which I had not tried before, but I'm glad I did. I made them low fat by using only 1/4 cup smart balance oil, and 1/4 cup fat free vanilla yogurt. Even with this change the brownies were amazingly rich and gooey!

I made half the German Chocolate topping with coconut and half without, since Michael doesn't like coconut. Crazy guy.

We both loved these awesome brownies! They are yummy, easy, and impressive! I'm definitely bringing these to our next family get together!

This month's Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger event is being hosted by Rachel at Wheat Free/ Meat Free. Make sure to stop by her site tomorrow to see this month's roundup!

  2. I agree, anyone who doesn't like coconut on their chocolate must be crazy! lol! I think I might have to try this next time I make brownies. I even have some coconut in the pantry... hmmm...


  3. Natalie -- thanks gal! They are so good! Now I know how to make brownies, and michael won't eat them! haha! I'll have them ALL to myself! ;-P

    Karen-- you are so right... pure crazy anybody who doesn't like chocolate or coconut!! My sister doesn't like chocolate and my husband doesn't like coconut... what kind of family do I have? lol

  4. Oh. My. I've been dying for German Chocolate Cake lately for some reason. This would be EVEN BETTER.

  5. I LOVE German chocolate cake, so I'm definitely going to have to try out her recipe. Thanks for posting it!

  6. Carrie -- thank you SO much for adopting me :) I wanted to write this earlier, but I was on vacation with no internet access. Your post truly made my day.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the brownies :)
