These gluten free brownies are my latest gluten free dessert test. 

Although I myself am not gluten free, I post a lot of gluten free desserts on my blog. 

My criteria for making gluten free recipes is that they have to be easy to make and not require any hard to find fancy ingredients. 

Years ago, I discovered a combination of oat flour and coconut flour that works perfectly for gluten free baking. 

Not only are these two flours easy to find, but they are affordable and very versatile.

I have used this combination in everything from my gluten free carrot cake recipe to my gluten free chocolate mug cake

Today I’m using it to make this easy and delicious gluten free brownie recipe!

How to make gluten free brownies

These gluten free brownies are made not only with the classic cocoa powder, but there is melted chocolate INSIDE the batter.

This happens to be my favorite way to make brownies taste extra fudgy inside!

First, you will melt coconut oil and chocolate chips until combined. 

To this, add in olive oil, vanilla extract, sugar, and brown sugar. Use a whisk to combine.

Whisk in 3 eggs, one at a time, until mixed. 

In another bowl, whisk together all of your dry ingredients: oat flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. 

Add the dry to the wet, using a rubber spatula to mix until just combined (do no over mix).

Line an 8 X 8 baking dish with parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray.

I used parchment paper for ease of clean up. It also makes it super easy to just lift the brownies right out of the pan and cut. 

Pour in your batter and bake until the middle is no longer jiggly, around 30 – 35 minutes. 

Allow the brownies to cool 10 minutes in the pan, then lift the parchment paper and remove the brownies onto a cool surface.

Use a plastic knife to cut, or wait until mostly cool to slice to avoid crumbling.

I made the mistake of cutting mine too warm, and they started to fall apart. 

At first, I thought the recipe was not right, but once they cooled they were the perfect fudgy texture and held together like a dream. 

With gluten free desserts, that texture is everything.

Just don’t be dumb like me and cut them too soon!

These were absolutely amazing and did not taste gluten free to me at all. 

I can’t wait for you to try them!

Can you use avocado oil to replace the coconut and olive oil this recipe calls for?

Hello! Thanks for providing recipes, I very much appreciate it. I have a family member who could benefit from gluten free options so I wanted to try this. I made some changes so my results should not reflect on the success of your own. I am hoping for some feedback as to why my brownies came out as they did. Instead of the chocolate chips I used a high quality dark chocolate (58%) and I added an additional egg which I normally do when making brownies as we prefer a more cake like brownie. Also I made my own oat flour. I think I would make the flour finer next time as it "showed up" in the batter and final result with what I call a "bran stippling" effect. It did not effect the mouth feel though. What these changes resulted in was a very rich brownie but it also seems to crumble even though it is mostly cooled off,/slightly warm. I would love your ideas on what I did to come out with a crumbly results, moist but crumbly. If ice cream wasn't a trigger for my family member with the tummy issues i would definitely present my results as a "brownie crumble" with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for my intro to gluten free baking, I think it's a wonderful taste you put together!

Hi Ana, your problem may have been in the use of an additional egg, it's hard to say. While these brownies are definitely more prone to crumble, I usually only have a few around the edges that crack more easily, while all the center ones do not. Did you allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting? I did not do this once and they fell apart much more easily. I'm glad you enjoyed the taste!
