These brownies ruled. Count on TJ's to knock GF brownies out of the park. You could switch these with regular brownies and no one would ever know the difference.

Z's Review: * * * * *
This mix made an 8x8 pan of brownies. In my experience, gluten-free baked goods can get really hard really fast if you over-bake them, so I was pretty worried about overdoing these brownies. That being said, I did give these brownies six extra baking minutes (for a total of 36 minutes) and I probably still could have left them a few more minutes. Gluten-free baked goods also don’t rise as high as regular baked goods, so these brownies came out kind of flat looking – almost like someone had sat on them! However, I think these brownies held their shape pretty well, second best of the other brownie mixes I have tried (with Pamela’s Products holding their shape the best). As for taste, these brownies were the best gluten-free brownies I have tasted by far! No one would ever know there was anything different about them! Trader Joe’s please, please, please come to Colorado!!
