Review: Gluten-Free Brownies and Blondies from Freedgoods

I received two free brownies and one blondie from Freedgoodsco to review. Their gluten-free and yeast-free products are sold in Connecticut and can also be ordered online. Each flavor is available online as a box of four for $14 or two flavors can be selected in a box of 8 for $25. They are made in a shared facility with wheat, and they “take all possible steps to eliminate cross-contamination”. The brownies and blondies are thick and large, perfect for sharing.

I tried the chocolate original and chocolate walnut. Both flavors were very fudgy, moist, rich, and dense. My daughter and I loved them! The blondie contains large chocolate chips and some coconut. It was extremely moist, fluffy, and the coconut taste was evident, but not strong. If you love coconut, then try the chocolate coconut brownie. They also make a chocolate peanut butter brownie, which I am eager to try.

The brownies are made from a flour mix that contains garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, sorghum flour, and fava bean flour. Despite the use of bean flours, there is absolutely no unpleasant after-taste, and they taste better than most gluten brownies. In fact, the taste is so good that you will cherish every bite!

Freedgoodco was founded by Stephanie, a former corporate lawyer. She donates 5% of the profits to infertility research, education, and treatment. Infertility is a complication of undiagnosed celiac disease. Read Stephanie’s story here. If you are looking for a delicious gift for others or yourself, order from Freedgoods!
