Recipe Tips & Notes

For crackle-topped gluten free brownies: Place pan with batter in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to chill before baking.

Why We Love This Chocolatey Brownie Recipe

It offers an intense chocolate flavour. As classic chocolate lovers, we enjoy the rich, fudgy decadence of these GF brownies coupled with the added chocolate chips!

While this may be merely an aesthetic preference, everyone loves a shiny meringue-like top and this gluten free recipe delivers! Chill your gluten free brownie batter before baking for the best crackling top.

Does Gluten Free Brownie Box-Mix Exist?

Yes, gluten free brownie box mix does exist. There are several different brownie box-mix options for Celiacs available now including Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Brownie Mix and Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Mix. Both are easy brownie box mix options available online and in-stores.

Can you use white chocolate instead?

White chocolate and milk chocolates yield different results when substituting in recipes. Unfortunately, a straight substitution of the chocolate used with white chocolate will result in an oily and too sweet texture.  

Are semisweet chocolate chips gluten free?

The easy answer is yes, most semisweet chocolate chips are naturally gluten free. It is important to always read labels and watch for the hidden gluten. There are options available that state being gluten free including Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.

    This really is the best brownie recipe. I do a lot of baking and cooking. My taste in sweets leans towards everything but chocolate. Once in awhile I do get a sudden craving for something dense and chocolate. I am delighted. It’s delicious. It’s simple. It’s dark and rich and fulfills every chocolate craving. I’ve made it quite a few times since the first and mostly to serve other people. It has never failed to be eaten with delight, and I’m so glad your recipe is the one that caught my eye. Thank you for sharing the best gluten free brownie I’ve ever eaten or baked.
