Fashion Brownies

So in efforts to provide less clutter on the interweb with useless blog entries, I've decided to combine today's memo into one food and fashion extravaganza (slash plain ol' blog entry)!  Peppering a recipe with my favorites from fashion week thus far:

Fashion week (as you know) started Thursday because like you and I - Fashion knows that Monday's suck and clearly should not be the beginning of the week.  In celebration of this blessed event I've decided to bake some brownies.  Cause nothin' says fashion week like mowing down a whole plate of adorable gluten free / vegan brownies.  I know right?!

Preheat oven to 325˚ F.  Mini-cup up 3 dozen mini-muffin cups (say that 3 times fast - yeah, it wasn't hard for me either).

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, potato starch, arrowroot, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and cocoa powder.  In a large bowl mix together apple sauce, canola oil and vanilla.

Slowly add flour mixture, stirring to combine.  Stir in coffee or water until it forms a batter.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Place 1 tbsp batter into each prepped muffin cup.  Place in oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool on wire rack.  Tune into or the Cut and go at those muffins like you're LL in front of the paparazzi.
