GF Brownies

These ooey-gooey delicious brownies are absolutely fantastic! Just the right amount of crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Finger-Lickin-Good! Try them with Vanilla Pea Milk and dairy-free substitutes to round it out and make it vegan. These are great for office parties, school lunches, and holiday parties– everyone loves them and nobody has to know they are GF (except those guests who need it). 


  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (I use dairy free chocolate chips)
  • 5 Tbsp coconut oil (can sub butter, avocado oil, vegan butter, ghee)
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar (can sub white, brown, or maple sugar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (if paleo) or baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 30 Minutes
  • 16 Brownies
  • 350ºF
  • Gluten-Free, Vegetarian


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray.
    2. In a small saucepan, gently melt chocolate and oil over low heat until smooth and glossy. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs until slightly lighter in color and until they pass the ribbon test (when you lift the whisk the mixture should stream down evenly in “ribbons”). Set aside.
    4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients–almond flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
    5. Working slowly, whisk the egg/sugar mixture into the saucepan of melted chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Stir in vanilla and mix in.
    6. Stir in the dry ingredients and fold until just mixed.
    7. Fold in the additional chocolate chips.
    8. Pour batter into your prepared pan and smooth the surface.
    9. Bake at 350 degrees 20-24 minutes, or until edges are set and the center is still ever so slightly underdone. (The remaining heat should set the center as it cools)
    10. Sprinkle with coarse salt, if using, and allow brownies to cool before slicing.
