A Dinosaur Train Birthday Party - Gluten Free Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Brownies/Fossil Dig Slice

Benjamin wanted a Dinosaur Train themed birthday party and since it was his day, I wanted to treat him to be able to eat anything he wanted.  I have posted A Dinosaur Train Birthday Party - The Food & Healthy Eating showing the foods we chose and knew would be eaten by everyone.  The following posts are the recipes we used to enhance the theme of a Dinosaur Train Party, complimented with character specific food labels designed using Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio. 

The Fossil Dig Slice was Gluten Free Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Brownie, the nuts looking like fossils buried in mud...
The Fossil Dig Slice was one of the Gluten Free foods offered at Ben's Dinosaur Train Birthday Party.
This recipe is one of my own, so I do hope you enjoy it

180g organic butter or Nutlex softened
225g Dark chocolate or dairy free replacement
         (we use Lindt 85% and it does not seem to make us sick)
1/3 cup organic Rice Milk
3 lge organic Eggs
1 cup organic Gluten Free plain Flour
1/4 tsp Gluten Free Baking powder
1/2 cup organic Almond Meal
1 cup organic Rapadura or sugar of your choice
1/2 organic Cacao powder
1 cup Organic Raw Macadamia nuts chopped into quarters

  1. Preheat oven to 150 - 180 degree Celsius (depends on your oven really and if it is fan forced or not)
  2. In a double boiler melt chocolate and butter together until smooth and there are no lumps
  3. Combine to a uniform dry ingredient mix,  flour, nut meal, sugar, baking powder and cacao in a bowl
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add eggs and milk
  5. Lightly whisk the eggs and milk together without adding too much of the dry ingredients
  6. To the well add the melted butter and chocolate and mix well
  7. Add Macadamia nuts and mix through the mixture until evenly distributed
  8. Pour into a prepared square cake tin
  9. Bake for 40 mins or until cooked
  10. Cool on wire rack
This is Pete's sister's favourite brownie recipe, hope this becomes one of your too.
Love and kisses
