Super Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies

Slightly adapted from Flippin Delicious

Super Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #brownie #recipe #glutenfree

My gluten free friend Kelly has a birthday this week, so she decided she was going to do an ice cream sundae bar at work for a birthday celebration. She shared this little tidbit of a plan with me and I said “well, then, I need to make brownies!” … I found a new recipe for gluten free brownies over at Flippin Delicious (I know, I have a gluten-free brownie recipe already, but I’m always wanting to try something NEW). I baked these brownies up the evening before the big sundae bar celebration.

Kelly was so funny about the brownies. She decided to go get some other brownies for “the rest of the crowd” because she said “these are the gold standard of brownies. We’ll have some silver standard brownies for the rest of the people.” And the brownies she purchased looked awfully dang good, but then certain people still came and asked “where are the brownies?” She looked a little disappointed when they were specifically requesting one of THESE brownies for their sundae. I guess I’ll have to make another pan just for her.

These brownies are so dense and fudgy, they are just right for brownie sundaes. Or any other occasion calling for brownies. If you allow them the privilege of trying these brownies, your gluten-eating friends will not believe these brownies are gluten free either, because the texture is just perfect … soft and tender with just a little sugar crunch on the top, just like a brownie should be.

Super Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: about 12 brownies

Super Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies


  • 8 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a 9x9 inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the butter, sugar and cocoa powder. Beat with an electric mixer or stir with a spoon until smooth and shiny.
  3. Add the water, salt, and vanilla and stir again till smooth. Stir (or beat) in the eggs, one at a time.
  4. Add the flours and the chocolate chips and mix until well blended. This will make a thick batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out with a spatula. Bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool slightly and cut into squares.


I tried a little square while they were still warm from the oven (you know, just to make sure they were good enough for a birthday) and it was sooo good, so I would say you really don't have to wait very long before cutting these brownies.

  1. These look so yummy, I will have to try them. I’ve been craving a good brownie, but I’m trying to reduce the amount of sugar. However, I’m going to pin this and save it for a special occasion 🙂

      Hi Sonya,

      Thank you so much for your kind comments … these definitely aren’t a low sugar or low fat brownie–they are super rich and decadent tasting, a great way to satisfy a chocolate craving. Just make sure to have friends around to share them with so you don’t eat them all yourself! 🙂

  2. They look fabulous. Pinning and will be making these soon for my GF son and granddaughter. Thanks so much for sharing at Weekend Potluck. Can’t wait to see what you share with us next time!

    Holy cow, these are delicious! I’ve never used brown rice flour or tapioca flour before, so I had to run to the store to get them both. They’ll now be pantry standards, so I can make these brownies whenever I have the need for a GF treat. I made a double batch so I could share with a GF friend…everyone loves these, and they taste perfectly “normal”! The texture is a perfect brownie texture, too. Nobody would ever know they’re GF, as there’s no off-taste or glue-y, gummy texture. Thanks, Ann, for the great recipe!
