Fudgey Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Brownies

Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Brownie Recipe

These are fudgey brownies. I cut them into small pieces as they are pretty rich.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups organic brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder I used Starbucks VIA
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 6 tablespoons water mix together and let sit for 5 minutes
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free whole grain flour mix
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour sifted
  • 1 teaspoon xanthun gum
  • 2 cups dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 9"x13" baking pan with parchment paper (this makes removing the brownies from the pan easier).
  2. In a medium microwavable glass bowl, heat coconut oil and sugar for 2 minutes and stir to combine. You want to dissolve some of the sugar, but do not want it to bubble.
  3. Stir in cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla. Add eggs, flax seed/water mixture and applesauce, stirring until well combined.
  4. Add whole grain flour mix, coconut flour and xanthum gum, and stir until well combined.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes so coconut flour can absorb moisture.
  6. Spread batter in parchment paper lined baking pan. Bake 30 minutes.
  7. Let cool before cutting.
