Dave and I are confessed chocoholics. Dave is actually a chocolate connoisseur – he has the ability to discern the actual region of the world chocolate comes from with a blind whiff and a nibble. Lucky guy!
So, we are incredibly proud to offer up this chocolatey, sinful delight of yum. The credit must be given to Ms. Karina at cafedelites.com. Click on the link here to see the original recipe designed for all purpose flour. I tweaked it a bit to accommodate our gluten free flour blend – Flour Farm, and added metric measurements. A few other changes I made to the original recipe: I used avocado oil, organic cane sugar & light brown sugar, Navitas organic cacao, pink Himalayan salt, salted butter and Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips.
Karina uses a technique that I thought was genius- baking on the top shelf of the oven. This instruction helped to make the brownies fudge-gooey on the inside and denser towards the edges, which I personally love. We ate half the batch a few minutes out of the oven. WOW!!!
No need to refrigerate these gluten free delights to keep fresh overnight (if they last that long!) We stored the brownies in an airtight container and they were delicious the next morning with a small scoop of organic vanilla ice cream. :0. I know, so naughty!

- 45g (1.6 oz) Unsweetened Cacao Powder (1/2 C)
- 60g (2.1 oz) Flour Farm Organic Gluten Free Flour Blend (1/2 C + 1/2 T)
- 1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (1.5g)
- 113g (4 oz) Unsalted Butter – Melted (1 stick, 8T or 1/2 C)
- 1 T Oil – we use Avocado Oil (13g)
- 110g (3.9 oz) Cane Sugar (1/2 C)
- 110g (3.9 oz) Light Brown Sugar – Packed (1/2 C)
- 2 Large Pasture Raised Eggs (100g)
- 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (9g)
- 45g (1.6 oz) Mini-Chocolate Chips (1/4 C)
Please read the prep note above. Thank you!
Step 1: In a small bowl, sift in the cacao powder. Add the Flour Farm flour and salt. Whisk together. Set aside.
Step 2: In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the melted butter, oil and sugars for about 1 minute (or use a mixer set to medium).
Step 3: Thoroughly whisk in each egg, one at a time.
Step 4: Add the vanilla. Whisk or beat for 1 more minute.
Step 5: Gently stir the dry mix into the wet mix. Do not over mix.
Step 6: Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth out the top.
Step 7: Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of the batter.
Step 8: Bake for 20-25 minutes. The middle will feel set to the touch – no jiggles. The toothpick does not really give you an accurate test for doneness.
Step 9: Remove from the oven and allow brownies to cool in the pan on a baking rack. When completely cool, slice into 16 brownie squares.
Enjoy with ice cream, fudge topping, whipped cream…. It’s all good!
