  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1-1/8 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (any kind! milk chocolate is delicious, but semisweet works also...or white or peanut butter...)
1)  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil and grease foil.

2)  Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and xanthan gum in a small bowl.  Set aside.

3)  Melt chocolate and butter in a medium-size saucepan over low heat.  Remove from heat; whisk in sugar and vanilla.  Whisk in eggs, one at a time, and continue to whisk until mixture is completely smooth and glossy.  Add flour mixture and whisk until just incorporated.  Sitr in nuts and chocolate chips.
