Fruit and Nut Brownies; Gluten and Dairy Free

Craving brownies…
DSC_00221/2 cup coconut oil; warm it if it has solidified so it is the consistency of room temperature butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup gluten free flour (I have used oat flour in the past but I had a homemade gluten free mix left over so I used that)
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional) I used slivered almonds, because that is what I had on hand
(you may want to add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to make it a double chocolate brownie)

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9” square glass pan (I use a pastry brush to apply the coconut oil). Blend together coconut oil, brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each. Mix together oat flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt then stir gently into oil and sugar mixture. Mix in raisins, nuts and/or chocolate chips if using. Bake 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool, chill in refrigerator before cutting into squares and removing from pan carefully with a spatula.
