Brownie Companions: Orange Almond Brownies

Afraid of failure and completely unable to decide which brownie recipe I wanted- I made two batches! Both turned out great (funny how that works), so I am posting both recipes. You decide which brownie you are in the mood for or make both!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 inch square baking pan. Combine the chopped unsweetened chocolate and the butter in a med. saucepan and cook over very low heat; stir until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until foamy. Whisk in the sugar, zest, vanilla, and salt until combined. In a separate small bowl, whisk the xanthan gum and rice flour together. Stir the melted chocolate into the large bowl with the egg/sugar mixture. Add the flour mixture and mix until just blended. Fold in the coarsely ground almonds. (I ground my almonds in a mini-food processor, but did not grind them into a fine meal because I wanted a crunch to my brownie- either way is fine)

Put the batter in the greased baking dish and cook for about 30 minutes. Let cool.

Makes about 9 big squares.
