We invite you once again for a brownie. Yes, you can not hide – we like chocolate. After the beetroot version this time, the pure gluten-free brownie is presented here. And without any baking powder. Although we are not on a gluten-free diet, we rather try to limit the use of flour. We are more than happy to experiment and if it turns out that such homemade recipes without flours are not inferior, then it is worth the effort.

This gluten-free brownie has a strong chocolate flavour. It is fudgy, gooey, and incredibly easy to make. Not mentioning sooo delicious. The dough has a wonderful consistency, and no one will even guess that it is gluten-free.

So if you’re looking for a truly delicious gluten-free brownie, look no further. It can also be made with whole wheat for a non gluten-free version and it can be dairy-free, too.

Ingredients for gluten-free brownie:

  • 200 g of dark chocolate
  • 200 g of butter (use coconut oil for a dairy-free version)
  • 200 g of sugar (or any sugar substitute)
  • 135 g of gluten-free flour mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 100 g of nuts (you can use any nuts you like but we used here almonds) – optional
  • 100 g of dark chocolate (for decoration) – optional


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Prepare a small rectangular mould with dimensions of 12 cm x 20 cm. Line it with baking paper.
  2. Put butter in a saucepan and melt it over minimal heat. Add 200 grams of dark chocolates broken into cubes and melt it. Stir it constantly until nice and smooth, then set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl mix eggs with sugar, we used a blender with a whisk to fluff it ever so slightly. Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture and mix it with a spoon until it forms a smooth mass.
  4. Add the flour, salt and vanilla and coarsely chopped nuts if you use them, blend them into a uniform dough. Put into the prepared baking mould lined with baking paper and level the surface.
  5. Optionally sprinkle rest of the chocolate (100 g) which was grated or chop in small cubes on top of the dough.
  6. Put into the oven and bake for about 35 minutes, until the dough slightly grows. After baking and cooling, cut into small pieces.


If you use a larger baking mould, the dough will be ready faster, if smaller – the baking time should be extended.
