Gluten Free Brownies

Okay, so this is more desserty type things. No wonder I'm fat.
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup potato flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and chocolate squares over low heat. Stir in sugar, remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir together potato flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup of nuts, if you're the kind of person who likes putting loathesome nuts in innocent baked goods. Add to the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth. Mix well.
Pour into a greased 8" square baking pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, if desired. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool, then chill. Cut into squares and store in the fridge. Makes 2 dozen brownies, if you cut 'em small.

I'll have to see if I can the wife or daughter to make these. we're still trying to figure out if gluten is one of my triggers regarding the I.B.S. symptoms.
