Gluten Free Brownies

Gluten-Free Brownies


After reading this recipe on Mennonite Girls Can Cook (and yes, they can) I knew this was a recipe I wanted to try. I found some coconut flour at Bulk Barn when we went to the city, and have since gotten more, so I can make more brownies. :) These made really, really good brownies. Not too cake like, and not too fudge like. Just perfect! When you have a minute, head on over to MGCC the next time you're looking for a recipe.

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sifted coconut flour (*See Note)
  • 1 cup nuts chopped

  1. In a saucepan at low heat, melt butter and blend in cocoa powder.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool .
  3. In a bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla .
  4. Stir in cocoa mixture.
  5. Add well sifted coconut flour and whisk the batter well until there are no lumps.
  6. Fold in the nuts.
  7. Pour batter into a greased 8" or 9" square baking pan.
  8. Bake at 350' for 30-35 minutes.

*NOTE: Coconut flour very quickly absorbs so the batter may look thin at first ! 1/4 cup of coconut flour is equal to 1 cup of regular flour. (note from Danika, ahhhh no wonder my coconut stuff comes out too dry, I was trying to thicken the batter)
