    Wow! These Lemon Brownies are GREAT! I have many allergies, including wheat. I can not use most commercially made GF flour mixes or products since the ones I can find include potato starch. I am also allergic to potatoes! I make my own GF flour mix of one third brown rice flour, one third tapioca flour and then one third GF corn starch and then add Xanthan Gum. I mention this as with Covid-19 sometimes we can not find every thing we want and it may be of help to some one who still wishes to bake. Besides, making your own GF flour mix is generally more economic. The amount of Xanthan gum needed various with what one is making. For this Lemon Brownie recipe 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum is what is needed when using a GF flour that does not contain it.

    Thank you Jenny for a recipe that has such great texture and taste and that can be made Gluten Free!

    I thought you were vegan until this recipe. I read the substitutions, but I may try using a vegan option.

    What can I use in place of the eggs to make it vegan?

    I have a large bottle of dried lemon zest and wonder if it is something I could use in this recipe? How much dried zest should I use in place of fresh?

    I want to try your lemon brownies. I plan to replace the sugar with ethanol sugar. Would like to use combination or almond and/or coconut flour. Any suggestions?

    Love your website and recipes. Your artisan bread is such a hit. My family and friends love my gifts. I have 2 pots that fit in my oven.. so always make 2 at a time.
