Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

Not all gluten-free baked goods can measure up to their gluten-based original versions. However, brownies make the transition more successfully than most other chocolate baked goods.

There are many fine gluten-free brownies on the market, including today's vegan Bright Brownies from Julia's Table (Salt Lake City, UT).

These miniature, muffin-shaped, brownies were light with chocolate cake-like texture and mouthfeel, with classic rich chocolate brownie flavor.

Ingredients: Organic cane sugar, water, canola oil, white rice flour, cocoa powder, sorghum flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, pure Madagascar vanilla extract, baking powder (corn starch, sodium bicarbonate, monocalcium phosphate), psyllium husk powder, sea salt.

Welcome to the last day of Chocolate and Ginger Theme Week, and Day #1 of Chocolate Brownie Theme Week.

Mariposa Baking Co. offers great tasting, gluten-free baked goods that taste like the real deal. (They are not overly heavy, dense, dry or crumbly.)

Today's assortment of gluten-free chocolate and ginger baked goods, purchased at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, CA, were indulgent pleasures.

Previously, featured Mariposa's triple chocolate brownies and walnut brownies. Today's Chocolate Chunk cookies were dark, thick and fudge-y with chewy rich brownie-like texture and mouthfeel.

These cookies—and a buttery pain au chocolat (chocolate-filled pastry)—were paired with ginger spice biscotti. And speaking of ginger...Mariposa's ginger molasses cookies were also very tasty, and could easily be dipped in almost any favorite chocolate (fondue, hot chocolate, melted dark chocolate, etc.)
