The BEST Gluten Free Brownies Recipe

These gluten-free brownies are the BEST ever! I even liked them as much (or more) than regular brownies and I'm not even GF! They're thick, fudgy, and EASY without all the strange GF ingredients you often see.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces (113g) unsweetened baking chocolate
  • ¾ cup (170g) unsalted butter
  • 1 ¾ cups (350g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons (10g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour (such as Bob’s Red Mill, the blue package)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9” pan with foil or parchment and spray with nonstick cooking spray (be sure to use original and NOT the kind with flour!) (You can also bake these in a 9x13" pan for more but thinner brownies, but baking time will be shorter.)
  • Place baking chocolate and butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth (about 2 minutes depending on your microwave).
  • Stir sugar into chocolate mixture, then stir in eggs until well mixed. Add the vanilla, cocoa, and salt and stir until smooth, then carefully stir in the flour.
  • Pour batter into the pan and bake for about 22-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs an inch from the side of the pan. I like to make these a little underdone so they stay fudgy and rich.
  • Cool completely in the pan then cut into squares and serve. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to one month.
  • Tip: add any gluten-free candy or chopped cookies in step 3 after adding the flour for a fun twist.
