Gluten-free Brownies with Dark Chocolate and Nuts

Flourless Brownies

This picture does not do justice to the warm brownies and ice-cream we had last weekend. Brownies are hands down, the fastest way to bring a chocolate craving to life. The recipe is easy to put together and bakes in a jiffy. 

It was Friday night, wound up a tiring work week, dinner happened early, the dishwasher was loaded, and I was settling in to binge on Netflix. My little kid came by asking if we were have any desert. And sooner than you think, we were all feasting on a large bowl of warm brownies, and two flavors of ice-cream, vanilla and chocolate!
