Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make a foil sling for the 9x13 pan and grease liberally.
In a large mixing bowl combine the Cheatin' Wheat Gluten Free Flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder and xanthan gum. Blend thoroughly.
Separately, in a large mixing bowl, melt the 4 oz of bittersweet chocolate over a double boiler. Whisk in the oil, cocoa powder and flax meal to form a thin paste.
Remove from heat and whisk in the water, vinegar, vanilla extract and coffee extract (if using).
Add all the wet to the dry mixture and stir vigorously to combine.
Fold in chopped walnuts or any other additions you want.
Scrape brownie batter into prepared pan and spread into an even layer.
Bake approximately 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with few moist crumbs attached. Let cool in pan completely before cutting. If you lined the pans with foil, use the foil overhang to lift brownies out of pan prior to cutting.
