Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies - Gluten Free

I’ve tried many versions of a simple gluten free recipe that doesn’t steer away from being ‘somewhat’ classic. And this is the final result – a chocolatey, fudgy brownie that is perfectly soft and rich! Almond flour makes a great gluten free brownie. I’ve finally got the recipe to share with all of you!

I’m not sure I know a single person out there who doesn’t love a good brownie! And when I found out my brother was recently diagnosed with celiac disease I knew I had to find a few good dessert recipes that he could enjoy with the rest of us! Even though my blog doesn’t focus on dietary restrictions like gluten free it’s still nice to switch it up and give options for those who struggle, like my brother! And heck, you may not even know they are gluten free!

Ingredients

Almond flour is a great option to use as a substitution for gluten free baking. It’s what makes these brownies extra fudgy and gives them that slightly chewy texture. Be careful when switching out all-purpose flour for almond flour as it has more moisture, a lower absorption rate than flour and doesn’t have the same binding qualities. Shop for almond flour at your local Bulk Barn Store and use your reusable jar to cut back on packaging!

  • Almond flour
  • Cocoa powder
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Unsalted butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Good quality chocolate or chocolate chips (note: if you want this recipe to be 100% gluten free, make sure you are using gluten free chocolate)

How To Make Almond Flour Brownies

Step One: In a large bowl add almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine and set aside.

Step Two: In another bowl whisk eggs until pale in colour. Add melted butter, vanilla and mix to combine. Add sugar and whisk until smooth and well incorporated. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Step Three: Add chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) and gently mix into the batter.

Step Four: Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth batter out evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until batter is slightly set in the middle and the sides are starting to crisp.

Step Five: Let pan cool completely before slicing squares. Add whipping cream and fresh berries if desired.

I made these for my son who can’t eat any gluten. It was special for Thanksgiving and they were such a hit! I decorated them exactly like the images. They were just as pretty as the pumpkin pie and gobbled up by everyone!!!

Potato Dill Quiche with Goat Cheese 

This potato and dill quiche with goat cheese is made using a classic pie pastry crust and is loaded with roasted potatoes, red peppers, garlic, goat cheese and of course fresh dill! The combination of milk and cream gives a richer and creamier flavour than the typical quiche recipe.
