Gluten Free Nut Free Brownie (perfect for kids!).

We have a stack of Merrymaker healthy brownie recipes. We’ve got the original recipe, the sweetener free pumpkin variety and the raspberry sweetener free (our personal favourite). But it’s about time we shared this Gluten Free Nut Free Brownie recipe.

We’ve had lots of requests to share more nut free recipes because nuts are banned at school and are a no-go at Kids’ Parties!  So ta-da, we welcome the Gluten Free Nut Free Brownie.

It’s perfect for your kid’s party. This particular cake was actually made for our friend’s son’s birthday! All the kids loved it.

They even told us! But… we definitely didn’t mention any of the ingredients! We served it with kid friendly sugar free lollies. You can get that recipe here.

This healthy nut free brownie is also perfect for school snacks. Freeze them in small portions, perfect for Little Lunch or after school snacks. All the kids will want to come over for this delicious brownie!

Let us know what you think. Or more importantly, let us know what your kids think!

Always merrymaking,
