All the flavors of a gluten free brownie in a delicious gluten free brownie bites recipe.
This is a dessert that is so good no one will know that it is gluten free.
You may have guessed by the number of gluten free chocolate recipes on this site that I love chocolate. Chocolate and gluten free are a great combination.
Years ago I made Brownie Bites for my family. We loved them. They were a delicious dessert for our family or to serve a crowd.
I decided that I needed to come up with a gluten free version for those in the family that eat gluten free. The result was as good, if not better than, the regular version.
What I loved about these is that they are bite-size, well actually a couple of bites, but they are small. I can have one and feel like I had dessert, without having a lot of desserts.
I also like the fact that these are easy to keep in the freezer. Right now I have a bag of gluten free brownie bites waiting in the freezer for when I need a dessert.
- chocolate chips
- vanilla extract
- rice flour
- potato starch
- tapioca flour
- xanthan gum
Can I use a gluten free blend?
Technically you can use a gluten free flour blend like Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend or King Arthur’s Gluten Free Blend, but the individual flours will give you the best results.
The individual flours give you the best taste and texture. When you use the individual flours, like listed in the recipe, you really will have a dessert that is so good that no one will know that it is gluten free.
Gluten Free Brownie Bites
Little bites of rich and fudgy brownies.
- 3 cups chocolate chips- divided
- 10 tablespoons butter
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup rice flour
- 1/4 cup potato starch
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- Melt 2 cups of chocolate chips in the microwave with the butter. Stir every 30 seconds until melted.
- Stir in eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt and mix well.
- Stir in rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum just until incorporated.
- Add the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips.
- Grease a mini muffin tin or use liners ( they do come out easier and prettier using liners)
- Pour batter into prepared mini muffin cups.
- Bake at 350 for 12- 15 minutes or until done.
A gluten free blend can be used in place of the individual flours, but for best results make recipe as written.
