Many gluten free brownie recipes are made with gluten free flour blends like my favorite, Bobs 1:1 flour blend. It has xanthan gum and a mix of other flours, which really helps gluten free baked goods taste more authentic.

However, these gluten free brownies are made with almond flour. I love baking with almond flour and I think you will too. Making brownies gluten free is easy when you have the right ingredients!

Gluten Free Brownie Recipe – Ingredients

Almond flour – a high protein flour perfect for gluten free chocolate brownies.
Raw cacao powder – this adds a rich chocolate flavor and color to the brownies. You can sub cocoa powder if you’d prefer!
Baking soda (not baking powder) – gives the brownies just a little rise.
Sea salt – avoid using normal table salt if you can! It’s processed with chemicals that isn’t great for our health.
Coconut granulated sugar – this sweetener is less processed than traditional table sugar and contains trace minerals important for health.
Maple syrup – I love adding this liquid sweetener to my baked goods.  It adds a natural sweetness and a great depth of flavor.
Eggs – give these brownies some body and some chewiness.
Vanilla extract – adds a hint of vanilla flavor. Perfect for paleo brownies.
Chocolate chips (optional) – Add an extra pop of creamy chocolatey goodness!

Gluten Free Brownie Recipe – How To Make

1 – Preheat oven to 350℉ and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper.

2 – Combine the dry ingredients – the almond flour, cocao powder, baking soda, salt, and coconut sugar into a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

3 – Next, add in the maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla and mix until a batter is formed.

4 – Mix in the chocolate chips if using and transfer to the baking pan using a spatula or wooden spoon to spread the batter evenly.

5 – Finally, bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.

6 – Let the gluten-free brownies cool all the way to room temperature before cutting. They’ll continue to cook as they cool.

Gluten Free Brownie Recipe – Tips

For fudgy gluten free brownies, take them out at 25 minutes.

I like to cut the parchment paper down to size so it fits the pan perfectly. You can leave some paper hanging over the sides so the brownies are easy to lift out after they’re done baking.
