Ultimate Chocolate Brownies

4 posts in this topic

I was looking at the recipe for "Ultimate Chocolate Brownies" on the back of a bag of chocolate chips and thought, "I bet these would be easy to make gluten-free." Sure enough, they are awesome. My husband and I actually had one for breakfast this morning with the justification of, "It's like a chocolate donut, really." :)

Here's the recipe:


3/4 cup cocoa

1/2 tsp baking soda

2/3 cup butter (melted)

1/2 cup boiling water

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/3 cup flour (I use a flour mix that is 2 parts white rice flour, 2/3 part potato starch, 1/3 part tapioca starch, all sifted together)

1 tsp xanthum gum

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup chocolate chips


6 tbs butter

2 2/3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

1/3 cup milk (I used coconut milk)

1 tsp vanilla


  1. Pre-Heat 350 degrees
  2. Mix cocoa, baking soda, and 1/3 cup of the butter
  3. Add boiling water, Mix
  4. Add sugar, eggs, and remaining butter, Mix
  5. Add flour, xanthum gum, vanilla, and salt, Mix
  6. Stir in chocolate chips
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done (if you use one 8" pan and want thick brownies, you probably want to go a little lower/longer on the temp/time)
  8. Let cool and then add frosting on top


  1. Beat butter
  2. Alternate adding in sugar, cocoa, and milk
  3. Stir in vanilla

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
