Brownie Recipe - Gluten Free, Vegan

  • 1-1/8 cup Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking flour 
  • (I use Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Baking Flour. GF flour made with bean flours, not rice flour, are best for this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder (I use Hain Pure Foods because it's gluten-free and corn-free)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer + 2 tablespoons warm water (or 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 cups vegan gluten-free chocolate chips (I use dairy-free Enjoy Life mini chips)

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Spray 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Whisk together flour, arrowroot, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and cocoa powder in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  • Combine egg replacer and 2 tablespoons warm water and mix thoroughly. Add egg replacer mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in vanilla and oil. Stir until well combined. Slowly pour flour mixture into large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Add hot water and stir until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into baking dish.
