This gluten free brownie recipe is easy to make and also dairy free! They’re the best gluten free brownies and are made using almond flour.
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!
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 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper.
2 – Combine the dry ingredients – the almond flour, cocao powder, 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 27 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.

This looks amazing! Currently making them with my daughter. How much baking soda?
Hey Sarah! No baking soda in these. I reworked the recipe recently and forgot to remove it from the directions. Sorry about that!
In the directions you say to add baking soda, but there is no baking soda in the ingredients. Making them now.. gonna add 1 tsp. Wish me luck! Could you clarify for me for my next try?
Shoot! Sorry about that! I reworked this recipe and found there was no need for the baking soda, so I removed it from the ingredients, but forgot to remove it from the directions.
Thank you for the update about the baking soda. I put some in, and they turned out fine. I’ll try them next time with out and compare. They are more “cake-y” than fudgy with the baking soda. Another question, how do you store them?
I just keep them in the pan and cover it with a lid or foil. You can slice them and store them in an airtight container as well if you’d prefer that.
Amazing brownies; great crumb, slightly crispy edge, chewy inside, rich and super chocolaty. Easy recipe. Great results. Thank you!
You’re welcome! Thank you so much for the review, Dawn! So glad you loved the brownies.
