I tried these brownies last week and they were GREAT. Using mairagrne means they are dairy-free as well, and I needed a GF DF dessert for a birthday party. I doubled the recipe and used a 9 13 pan, which was perfect. I did find them a bit salty, so next time I'd reduce the salt and/or try using unsalted butter (we don't need to be dairy-free normally).
