The Recipe How-To

Preheat the oven and grease an 8×8 inch square baking pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper for easy removal of the brownie.

Melt 1/2 cup unsalted butter and 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate (roughly chopped) in a double boiler over low heat. Once melted, remove it from heat and let it cool while you prepare other ingredients.

In a large bowl, whisk together 2 eggs and 1 cup of light brown sugar until fully combined. Add 1/4 cup canola oil, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, and the melted chocolate mixture. Whisk everything together, making sure there are no lumps.

In another bowl, sift together ¾ cup of gluten-free flour, ½ teaspoon baking soda, and a pinch of fine sea salt. Add ⅓ cup cocoa powder (either quality cocoa powder like Ghiradeli or Hershey’s Non-Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder). Mix everything well.

Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients mixture, whisking continuously until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs attached to it. Do not overbake!

Let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before removing and cutting into squares.

For an extra fudgy texture, refrigerate for at least two hours before serving. Enjoy your Fudgy Gluten-Free Brownies Bliss!

Substitutions and Variations

One of the things I love about this Gluten-Free Brownie Bliss Recipe is that it’s so adaptable. A chocolatey base is perfect for experimentation and customisation, meaning you can tailor your brownies to your liking. Below are some ideas to get your creative culinary juices flowing.

– Dairy-free: Many people choose to avoid dairy for a variety of reasons, from lactose intolerance, allergies or veganism. You can always substitute the unsalted butter in this recipe with a dairy-free alternative such as coconut oil, cashew butter or vegan margarine.

– Nut-free: Many traditional brownie recipes include almonds, but this recipe is made with almond flour which is gluten-free. If you’re allergic to nuts or simply don’t have any at home, you could use other flour varieties such as rice flour or corn flour instead of almond flour.

– Paleo version: For those on a paleo diet, you can replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar and swap the chocolate chips out for raw cacao nibs.

– Vegan-version: This recipe is egg-free, but if you want to make it fully vegan then switch out the unsalted butter with coconut oil and leave out the eggs entirely. Add in a tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with three tablespoons of hot water as an egg replacement agent in place of each egg.

– Fudgy-gluten free: If that’s not enough to satisfy your choco-cravings, add more cocoa powder for an even fudgier brownie experience.

– Peppermint: Add some peppermint extract to give it a bit of a festive kick. Blitzy brownies indeed!

As you can see, there are endless possibilities when it comes to adapting this recipe. Use your imagination and get creative with ingredients that suit your dietary needs while still indulging in decadently delicious Gluten-Free Brownie Bliss that never disappoints!

That’s the beauty of the Gluten Free Brownie Bliss recipe – you can prepare them beforehand and still enjoy them fresh as a daisy! Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your bliss balls stay fudgy and delicious:

Make-ahead: One of the best things about this recipe is that you can make the batter ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to two days. Simply follow through with steps 1 to 4 of the recipe directions, then cover tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Storing: The Gluten Free Brownie Bliss balls can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to three days. For longer storage, they freeze beautifully. Pop them into an airtight freezer-safe container or zip-lock bag and store them in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.

Reheating: To reheat your brownies, simply place them in a preheated oven at 325°F for 5-10 minutes until heated through. You can also microwave them on high for 10-15 seconds each, but be careful not to overdo it as they may toughen up.

Tips for Perfect Results

Now that you have all the necessary ingredients for your gluten-free brownie bliss recipe, it’s time to make sure you achieve perfect results. The following tips will help you make fudgy and delicious brownies, whether you’re making them for yourself or as a special treat for family, friends or guests.

1. Use high-quality chocolate:

The type of chocolate you use can make or break your brownie bliss recipe. I recommend using bittersweet chocolate with at least 60% cocoa content. It will give your brownies a richer flavor and smoother texture. Brands like Ghirardelli or Hershey’s non-Dutch processed cocoa powder work great here.

2. Measure carefully:

Measuring ingredients inaccurately is one of the most common reasons why baked goods come out poorly. Use a digital scale to weigh the flour, almond flour, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips instead of using measuring cups and spoons.

3. Don’t overmix:

Mix just until the ingredients are incorporated- don’t let electric mixers do all the work as they tend to over mix batter which can lead to tough cakey brownies.

4. Test for doneness:

Bake your brownies according to the recipe instructions but don’t forget to poke them with a toothpick before pulling them out of the oven. If it comes out clean or with few moist crumbs then they’re done.

5. Cool before eating:

It may be tempting to cut into your fresh-from-the-oven brownies as soon as the kitchen is filled with their aroma but wait! Letting them cool in the pan for at least ten minutes will keep them from falling apart and help them set up perfectly once removed from the pan.

By following these tips for perfect gluten-free brownie bliss results, you’ll be well on your way to creating fudgy chocolate delights that everyone will love!

  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped (I use 60% cocoa Ghiradeli)

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla, gluten free
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (I used a coffee bean grinder to grind fresh almonds)
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 350ËšF and grease a 8'' X 8'' pan.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave. Add in the chopped chocolate and stir until it's melted. Add the cocoa powder and oil and mix to combine. Add the cocoa powder and oil and mix to combine.
  • Beat the eggs in a mixer with a paddle until they are a bit frothy.
  • Add the sugar and the vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Add the butter/chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.
  • Whisk together the brown rice flour, almond meal, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add to the mixer. Scrape down the bowl, then mix until combined.
  • Pour into the pan and smooth so it is even distributed throughout the pan.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then turn. Bake another 10-15, until a toothpick comes out mostly clean (err on the side of moist -- overcooked, dry brownies are the opposite of what you want. You want soft, moist brownies).
  • Cool on a rack until cool to the touch (I know it's difficult to resist the temptation when your whole house will be smelling of chocolate, but if you try to cut them too soon -and I know this from persoanl experience- they will fall apart).
  • Cut, serve, and enjoy!
