Mum's Famous Gluten Free Brownies

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 16 Brownies


  • Half cup melted butter cool until it's only warm, not hot. For Dairy Free option, do 1/4 cup macadamia or olive oil and 1/4 cup of the thick creamy top from a coconut cream can.
  • Half cup cocoa powder either raw cacao or dutch processed
  • One cup rapadura or panela sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder or paste
  • 2 tbsp tapioca, arrowroot or corn flour note: watch out for arrowroot flours sometimes having preservative 220 in them.
  • Half cup almond meal (blitzing your own fresh is the best for the recipe but don't stress yourself over it!) best when you've milled it freshly yourself if you can! Trust me on that one!
  • Half tsp baking powder
  • Quarter cup chocolate chips / chopped chocolate


  • Pre heat your oven to 180C / 350F fan forced (10 degrees more for non fan forced)
  • Combine melted butter and cocoa powder
  • Add eggs, sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth for 1 minute. If using a thermomix, 6 seconds, speed 6 will do it.
  • Mix in almond meal, corn/tapioca flour, baking powder and choc chips and turn by hand until just mixed (or speed 1 thermomix, 10 seconds)
  • Spread the mixture into a lined baking tin of 20cm for a thicker brownie and 30 minute cook time, OR 25cm bake tin for a 25 minute cook time.
  • I would check them at 20 minutes onwards every few minutes because it's always a bit different depending on the tin size and oven style.
  • You're done! How easy was that?
