Gluten Free Brownies

My family loves brownies. I had several regular brownie recipes that we loved, but making gluten free brownies, that were worth eating, proved to be a bit difficult.

Yes, I made some some gluten free brownies that were ok, but if I am going to eat a brownie, I want it to be good.

I was looking for a really good, fudgy, gluten free brownie. I wanted it to be as close to the real thing as possible.

After several months of tweaking, I finally have a gluten free brownie that my family loves. In fact, my daughter requested these for her birthday this week. That is how much we enjoy these brownies.

I will warn you that this recipe has some weird measurements, but it works, it really does.

  1. I am glad you found a gluten free brownie your whole family enjoys. In general, I have found the truffle-type brownies, the ones with very little flour, work exceptionally well adapted to be gluten-free.

    No nuts, not wheat…. at least we can still eat chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I don’t see an oven temperature for this recipe! Is it 350? I’m in the middle of making them for the first time & just noticed this omission.


  3. Do you think mashed bananas would work instead of the eggs? My son is allergic to gluten and eggs (& also corn so he can’t use xanthum gum, but i have a substitute for that).

    Thanks for any suggestions! Its hard to find a recipe that doesn’t use rice or bean flour.

    • I am not sure on the eggs. I would say that if the banana works in other recipes as a substitute than it should work okay in this one. Sorry I can not be of more help. I have not had to deal with egg allergies so I am not familiar with how to substitute.

    • You cab sub the eggs with flax meal and water. It tastes great and I do it all the time!

  4. I am so glad I found this! I did make a few substitutions though. I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. I used coconut oil instead of butter. I used guar gum instead of the xanthun gum. I used organic cacao powder instead of regular cocoa powder. And lastly, I used chopped unsweetened chocolate baking squares instead of regular chocolate chips. They are delicious! Thanks!

  5. This brownie is phenomenal, moist chewy, chocolatey. I am once again making it instead of a birthday cake, subbing earth balance for the butter for my cf gf family! Thank you for a rare treat. It must taste yummy with all that coconut stuff substituted.

  6. These brownies are the best ever! I scoured the internet after i accidentally deleted my favorites, so finding them again is a treat. Thanks, Lynn!
