The best gluten free brownies you’ll ever make

Who doesn’t love brownies? I know I am particularly fond of the texture of brownies. The best ones: in my opinion are the ones that have a crunchy topping and a fudgy inside. Now I had tried to make these gluten free before but never succeeded. Until now.

Perfect texture

You’ve gotta try it to believe it. The making of these brownies cannot be more straight forward. It really is quite simple and you’ll definitely make every one happy. Not just your gluten free friends. Trust me. I made this during a photoshoot and my friend, who is not gluten free, thought they were the best brownies ever.

If you’re more into a cake like brownies you can try these vanilla and chocolate brownies which are equally delicious but with a different texture.

No more flour

There is another bonus in making these gluten free brownies as there is no more flour to be found in any of the stores here in the Netherlands. It seems that the entire nation has gone crazy with baking, now that we’re all more at home than ever before.

And since these don’t require any flour it should be possible to get the necessary ingredients without too much hassle.


One thing I have to mention on these gluten free brownies is that they are much more crumbly than an average brownie. Which is even more so when they come straight out of the oven. The do become a bit firmer when they cool down, but something to be aware of when you’ve baked them. Just eat them with a small plate under neath to prevent a mess on your floor! 🙂

Happy Easter!

They’ll do quite well on the Easter brunch table or really any occassion you can think of and it is all about celebrating small things these days!

  • 4 eggs
  • 150 gr coconut sugar or regular sugar if using
  • 30 gr almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp orange juice + zest of one orange

  1. Preheat the oven top 180˚C and cover a square 20 x 20 cm tin with baking paper.

  2. Combine the sugar and the eggs and mix on high speed until fluffy and doubled in size. Approximately 3-5 minutes.

  3. Stir through the almond flour, coconut flour, cacao, orange juice and zest and vanilla and combine well.

  4. In the mean time melt the chocolate together with the ghee. I usually do this au bain marie

  5. As soon as the ghee and chocolate are melted together and are smooth, take of the heat and allow to cool before you stir it into the brownie mixture.

  6. Add the chopped walnuts as the last step.

  7. Add the batter into the baking tin and bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until a wooden stick comes out clean. It doesn't have to be entirely dry but also not too wet.
