The BEST Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Recipe – Fudgy

This post was most recently updated on November 2nd, 2021

I have lived gluten free for the best part of 10 years now. I have tried a LOT of gluten free chocolate brownie recipes. Sadly, most gluten free chocolate brownies are dry, chalky or crumbly, or worse – flavorless. And quite frankly, gross. This recipe, on the other hand, is chewy around the edges and soft and gooey in the middle. It is the perfect blend of goodness and awesome. Plus it uses cocoa, not real chocolate, which means it is cheaper to make, and I usually have the ingredients on hand.

No fancy ingredients

This recipe has no almond butter, almond flour, xanthan gum, coconut flour, coconut sugar or coconut oil (though I do make a dairy free version subbing coconut oil for the butter!). This is simple ingredients that you will likely have in your gluten free pantry already.

How Good is this Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Recipe Really? Can you tell it is gluten free?

When I make this brownie for people, they have no idea that it is gluten free. My best friend, who is a self-proclaimed gluten-free hater, can’t tell that this is gluten free at all. It is THAT good.

Even better, this chocolate brownie is made with ingredients that you will have in the pantry right now. There is no melted chocolate or fancy ingredients, unless you want to add nuts, raspberries or white chocolate buttons, but it is scrumptious even without these in there.

This chocolate brownie is my go-to dessert on those nights when I feel like a sweet treat because it is ready to eat in about 25 minutes from the moment the thought pops in to my head!

It is also my favourite thing to take to morning teas or take-a-plate events. You can dress it up with a little chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream or yoghurt, or leave it plain to have with tea or coffee.

I mix this brownie all in one pot. It saves on dishes and it is ready so quickly. This recipe is so simple that my 8 year old loves to cook it too.

Enough dilly dally and on with the recipe!

Cocoa Powder vs Chocolate based brownie mix

One of the big appeals of this recipe is that it uses cocoa powder, not chocolate in the recipe. Honestly, I prefer a cocoa based brownie as the chocolate flavor is deeper and more rich. I recommend that you use a Dutch cocoa as it gives a deeper color and richer chocolate flavor.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams Butter, 5 oz
  • 1 1/4 cups White Sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a brownie pan with baking paper.
  2. In a pot over a medium heat, melt the butter.
  3. Remove the butter from the heat and stir in the sugar, cocoa and eggs.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined. Add your optional extras and stir through.
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the lined tin and smooth out so it is even.

To make dairy-free sub the butter for vegan butter or coconut oil in the same quantity.
