Part of me can’t believe that it’s already April but at the same time, part of me can’t believe that we fiiinally made it to April. March felt like 2 weeks and a million years all at the same time. Anyone else feel like that?!

Speaking of March, you guys absolutely rocked the March Gluten Free Baking Challenge. You made SO many different flavored scones, all different shapes, dairy free, not dairy free, and they were ALL amazing!

I can’t wait to see what you do with this month’s challenge!

Let’s Bake!

The April Gluten Free Baking Challenge Recipe is ….

Gluten Free Brownies

These brownies have received countless rave reviews, for good reason! They’re the perfect combination of fudgy, chewy, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

But best of all, they’re super easy to make!

This base recipe does not include any mix-ins but feel free to add any that you like! Chopped candy bars, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. would all be great.

Tips for Making Homemade Gluten Free Brownies

  • Use cold eggs and water. Room temperature eggs will make the brownies rise higher during baking and then they’ll collapse as they cool.  
  • Use Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder for best results. It gives the brownies a full, rich chocolate flavor.
  • Try substituting coffee for the water. It will enhance the chocolate flavor!
  • Don’t overbake! Overbaking will cause the brownies to dry out.

Can I Make Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies?

Yes! Just sub the melted butter for melted vegan butter. I like Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter best.

Gluten Free Vegan Brownies

For vegan brownies, use the butter sub listed above and use an egg replacer such as a flax egg or Just Egg.

    These brownies are sooo good! When you make them, freeze them and eat them frozen. They taste like a delicious ice cream bar somehow. Also good warm, but personal preference is frozen!!!

    Delicious!!!! Needed last minute brownie recipe for my brothers birthday and these turned out to be the best brownies we have ever had!!! We used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend for the flour, omitted the zanthan gum since the flour blend has it, doubled the salt, and only ended up using 1 egg because that’s what we had left in the fridge (oops!). It still worked perfectly and other than being a little messy to pick up (assuming that second egg would have helped that lol!), they were perfectly fudgy with just the right texture and richness and sweetness and chocolately goodness! Will absolutely make these again and again!

    Absolutely amazing. These are by far the best brownies I’ve ever made. Trying not to eat the whole pan. I did add 1 tbsp of instant coffee but otherwise followed the directions exactly. Also great cold. Will be making again soon. Great recipe
