Black Forest Goat Cheese Brownies

Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood - Patricia Green, Carolyn Hemming Quinoa Revolution: Over 150 Healthy, Great-Tasting Recipes Under 500 Calories by Green, Patricia, Hemming, Carolyn (2012) Paperback - Patricia,  Hemming,  Carolyn Green

On Sunday, I attended a potluck brunch at my friend's house.  My contribution was a pan of these brownies.

 

They are made with quinoa flour and are gluten-free.

 

 

 

I noticed that people helped themselves to two or three brownies, despite the gluten-free designation--a sure sign that something is up to snuff.

 

The goat cheese makes a nice change from the cream cheese sometimes used in brownies.  I also loved the dried cherries that were layered in with them. 

 

This recipe is a keeper--its from one of the cookbooks referenced above, sorry I'm not sure which one.
