Use leftover Gluten Free Bread to make these delicious Brownies!  Do not use commercial Gluten Free dry bread crumbs though as they are too fine. Bread that is at least 3 days old works best. Using a food processor, blender, or by hand, shred bread into medium-fine crumbs.


  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, almonds and hazelnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 level tsp espresso coffee powder


Preheat oven to 350F and prepare some cupcake paper baking cups on a baking sheet.

Melt butter or margarine over low heat, stirring occasionally. If using a microwave, cook on LOW power for 1 1/2-2 minutes or until margarine is melted. Cool.

In medium mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, baking powder,  nuts, cinnamon, coffee, cocoa powder and Xanthan Gum.

In separate bowl, beat egg and water together, add vanilla. Stir in brown sugar and beat until combined. Combine the egg mixture with bread mixture and the melted butter and mix until all ingredients are moistened. You might have to add a tablespoon of milk or water.

Using two spoons fill the paper cups, until just below the top or if you prefer making one whole and then slice, spread the mixture evenly in a shallow pan. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.

You can dust icing sugar on top once cooled or ice with Nutella Frosting.

Makes approximately 12

    • Spread the chunks of bread out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until the pieces are crunchy dry and just starting to turn golden (but not burned). This will take 15 to 25 minutes depending on the type of bread you started with. Remove the baking pan from the oven and let the bread cool for a few minutes.
