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
