In case you’ve noticed, I don’t have a ton of desserts on my blog. It’s not because I don’t like dessert, don’t get me wrong. But since going Gluten Free a few years ago, I just found it challenging to make Gluten Free desserts hold up the same way as regular desserts.
I’ve experimented a little here and there and have had plenty of fails, like the time I made chocolate chip cookies. I went to pick one of them up off of the pan and it completely fell apart in my hand. There were cookie parts everywhere, the floor, the counter, under the cupboards… (sigh).
So one day I decided to try one of my mom’s old recipes which was always a no fail-go to recipe in our house, and convert it into a Gluten Free version.
I substituted Almond Flour for the regular flour. And guess what? It all held together!
I made a few other modifications to the recipe as well.
I used Truvia white sugar instead of regular sugar. With Truvia you only need about half of the amount as you would with regular sugar. Truvia is a natural sweetener made from the stevia leaf. (No I’m not getting paid to say this, I just love using their product).
I also replaced the vegetable oil with Coconut Oil. I use Coconut Oil in almost everything I bake or cook with. Coconut Oil is a true “superfood”. It has a particular type of saturated fat called ‘medium chain triglycerides’ or (MCTs), which are easily digested and readily burned for energy, much like simple carbohydrates give you a boost in energy, but without the spike in blood sugar.
Plus the flavor you get from the Coconut Oil tastes so much better and makes these brownies super moist.
Ok let’s get into making these brownies!
Basically you just dump all of the ingredients into a large bowl, except the chocolate chips. No need to separate dry ingredients, etc.
Stir until everything is blended together.
Add the batter to a greased 9×9 baking pan.
Sprinkle the Chocolate Chips on top and pop it in the oven.
Here’s what I love about these Brownies.
- They are easy to make, this is really a no-fail recipe.
- They are Gluten Free.
- They are super moist (sorry if you hate that word, but they are!)
- They have a rich chocolatey taste.
- They are a crowd favorite, always the first to go at a party.
