Gluten Free / Dairy Free Brownies


Let’s be real…sometimes you just need a rich, ooey gooey chocolate brownie, am I right? I usually make brownies for my kids for Valentine’s Day and make them into heart shapes, but this year I couldn’t find my heart-shaped silicone mold. I honestly can’t remember if I gave it away before we did our home remodel or not. I was texting my sister, lamenting on how I couldn’t find the heart molds, and she said, “cut them out with cookie cutters”. Well, yeah, that would be a smart thing to do…and why the heck didn’t I think of that?! So, I baked the brownies in a regular square pan, cut them with heart cookie cutters and served them with berries. What a treat!


  • 1/2 c. superfine brown rice flour
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. sorghum flour
  • 1/4 c. tapioca starch
  • 3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. xanathan gum
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbs. nondairy butter
  • 4 oz. nondairy semisweet chocolate bar, chopped & separated into half
  • 1/3 c. almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (note: you can make these with egg replacer, but it turns out more cake-like than brownie-like)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9×9 baking dish and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, mix all dry ingredients and half of the chocolate bar.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat milk and remaining chocolate  for 30 seconds. Stir and add the nondairy butter, then microwave for another 30 seconds.
  • Add liquids to dry ingredients, then add vanilla and eggs. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Spoon into baking dish and spread so batter is even in the pan.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the brownies start to pull away from the side of the baking dish. (This last time I cooked them on convection and it took 14 minutes).
  • Once cooked, remove from oven, let cool and eat!
