Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate Brownie Week.

Today's Organic Gluten Free Brownie Mix was created by Wholesome Chow (Los Osos, CA).

These brownies had a pleasing cocoa aroma, a crisp brownie "crust," and a moist, almost gooey filling. (Made sure to let these cool fully before cutting into them.)

The mix was Organic Certified, Kosher, Non-GMO Project Verified, and Vegan Verified. And, so long to wheat, soy, egg, corn and nuts. You won't find these in the mix.

If you'd prefer to use "real" dairy butter you can. The directions also accommodated using flaxseed meal or one egg. And, since I hadn't cooked with flaxseed meal before (and was interested in trying it), I went with the flaxseed meal.

Thank you to Wholesome Chow founders for being part of a new wave of gluten-free bakers and mix creators. I will never forget the first time I tried the company's chocolate lavender cake—that I topped with a little fresh whipped cream and dried lavender buds. Bliss me.
