Gluten-Free Brownies

By: Gus Published: Updated:

These gluten-free brownies are the ideal sweet treat to snack on. They’re super easy to make and taste amazing.

Gluten-Free Brownies

These brownies are so good you won’t even be able to tell that they’re gluten-free. They’re gooey on the inside but crisp on the outside. It’s the ideal sweet treat that everyone will love.

A single batch of this recipe should feed roughly six to eight people. However, once you get started, it’s very hard to stop eating these incredible chocolate brownies. They match perfectly with a homemade warm chai tea.

If you need to cook for someone who is coeliac, then this recipe is perfect. None of the ingredients will contain gluten, but it’s always best to double-check packaging.

Assuming you have a bit of spare time, then the gluten-free chocolate fudge cake is also worth making. It’s very similar to these brownies, but it is a cake. Both have that lovely gooey chocolate center.

Personalizing this Chocolate Brownie Recipe

There are lots of different ways you can customize this brownie recipe, so that it’s better suited for your taste buds. Below are just a couple of ideas on what you can do.

Adding some chopped nuts is an excellent way of adding both flavor and a bit of crunch to your brownies. I recommend doing a combination of chopped walnuts, almonds, and even some hazelnuts.

Gluten-Free Moist Chocolate Brownies

Some additional chocolate chips can be mixed into the brownie mixture for even more of that chocolate goodness. You can use regular chocolate, or you can use some white chocolate. I highly recommend giving the white chocolate a go as it looks incredible and tastes even better.

What to Serve with this Brownie

While these brownies are perfect on their own, there is a couple of extras that match perfectly with them.

Much like the self-saucing chocolate pudding, a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream is an excellent way to take this dessert to the next level. For something a little lighter, you can use some regular cream instead.

Flourless Brownies

Some fruit matches perfectly with the brownie. For example, strawberries, banana, cherries, or raspberries all match perfectly with chocolate. You can do a combination of fruit and ice-cream for the ultimate brownie dessert.

Recipe Tips

  • Almond flour can go by different names such as almond meal or ground almonds. Any of these will work fine with this recipe.
  • Make sure you use unsweetened cocoa powder for the best results.
  • If you think your brownies are starting to burn around the edges, cover them with foil.
  • Lining your tin is very important as it helps prevent the brownie from sticking to the side.
  • You can melt your chocolate and butter in the microwave instead of over the stove. Make sure you’re checking the mixture as chocolate will still burn quite easily.
  • Ovens can vary quite heavily in cooking time, so you may need to cook the brownies for longer or shorter.
  • Allow the chocolate brownies to cool before cutting; otherwise, they may fall to bits. They will firm after an hour or two of cooling.

    I’m excited about trying this recipe, but my son is allergic to almonds. Is there another gluten-free flour that will work?

    So glad to find a recipe that are healthy and still tastes superb.

    Can I substitute the unsalted butter with Olive oil?

      You could, but I am slightly worried about how much flavor the olive oil will add to the brownies. You could try a light olive oil or something similar.
