Healthy Fudgy Brownies that are Gluten Free Vegan Refined Sugar Free

Brownies – Gluten Free, Vegan, Nut Free

  • Author: Morgan
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 25 min
  • Total Time: 35 min
  • Yield: 9 1x



Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (160g) gluten free all purpose flour (I use “Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 All Purpose Baking Flour” or “Better Batter” for a top 8 allergen free option)*
  • 1/2 (40g) cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (melted refined coconut oil, works as well)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal and 3 tbsp water (or 1 egg)
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar for nut free option)
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flaxseed meal and water and set to the side to thicken for about 5 minutes (skip this step if using an egg). 
  3. In a large bowl, sift together all of the dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips). 
  4. Once the flaxseed mixture has thickened, add the remaining wet ingredients to the flaxseed mixture and whisk until combined (if using an egg, add during this step).
  5. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Pour into an 8 x 8 greased pan and bake for 23-25 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool before serving.


  • For the best results, I recommend weighing your flour for this recipe. Not everyone measures flour the same and in gluten free baking the amount flour can change the texture of the baked goods.
  • You can use 1 egg instead of the flaxseed meal and water if you do not have an allergy to eggs.
