Recommended Products


  • 4 oz dark/bittersweet chocolate ½ c + 1 Tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1 stick or ½ c butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • tsps. vanilla extract
  • ½ c gluten-free flour blend
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350°
  • If your eggs are straight out of the fridge, place them in a bowl of warm, not hot, water.
  • If you are using chocolate bars or blocks, chop into small pieces. Cut the butter into chunks.
  • Place the butter or coconut oil and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Give it a stir. If the butter is not completely melted, heat it for a another 10 seconds. Stir until all of the chocolate is melted. If it is not melting after a minute of stirring, heat it another 10 seconds and stir.
  • Add the sugar and stir well to dissolve. Add the room temperature eggs and stir well.
  • Add the flour and salt and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 8" or 9" square pan. Bake 20-25 minutes for an 8" pan or 18-22 minutes for a 9" pan, or until it is set in the middle. With brownies, I always err on the side of under-done. The worst that can happen is that they are super soft and melty in your mouth.


*Be sure to use a gluten-free flour blend not a "baking blend." My preference for a store-bought blend is King Arthur Flour's Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour.
To mix up your own gluten-free flour blend, combine:
2 cups brown rice flour
2/3 c potato starch
1/3 c tapioca starch.
