Introducing my favorite gluten free brownies recipe (aka a recipe I made spontaneously because I ran out of regular flour lol)! True story guys: I ran out of all-purpose flour a couple of days ago and I wanted a brownies ASAPP. Luckily I had almond flour and decided to make a healthier version of my classic brownies. I added olive oil vs vegetable oil, almond flour vs all-purpose, less sugar, and unsweetened chocolate chips! New year healthier me am I right? But I kid you not guys, these literally taste like they have no almond flour at all and are so close to the real deal!! I can't wait for y'all to try it! Happy baking :)

  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened chocolate chips
  • Optional: chocolate fudge sauce to top

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8" square pan with oil and add parchment paper for easier removal.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, cocoa, eggs, and olive oil.
Add in the baking powder and almond flour. Pour in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it to the edges and add more chocolate chips to the top.
Bake the brownies for around 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (or a few crumbs)
Remove the brownies from the oven and cool them for about 15 minutes before cutting and enjoying.*
  • *To cut these brownies easily: use a large, sharp chef's knife. Heat it up using hot water and quickly slice the brownies, cleaning the knife up using a napkin each time.

    Any way you can make this Vegan by substituting the butter and eggs?

      Hi! We have not tested a vegan version but I'm sure you can use vegan butter maybe even use vegan eggs? You can give it a try and let me know if it works!
