Gluten Free & Sugar Free Pecan Brownies

Susan Bartley


I have a dear friend who has celiac disease, her husband has type 2 diabetes. So the challenge was to find gluten free, sugar free baked goods was quite a challenge. While finding gluten free items was pretty easy, and sugar free items was easy as well, the availability of both gluten free and sugar free in one item was quite difficult to fine. Thus my quest to make them baked goods that did not contain gluten or sugar in them. They cost more than regular baked goods as the gluten free flour and stevia are more costly than regular flour and sugar, but well worth the extra expense.
