Looking For A Good Brownie Recipe

Recommended Posts

I'm craving brownies and I want to make some soon like today. My problem is that I need them to be dairy free and sugar free in addition to gluten free. (I'm not asking much am I?) :D

The brownie mixes I found aren't sugar free. Does anyone have a good recipe? At this point I would settle for a half-way decent brownie recipe.

Hi, Go to gluten free recipezaar and search for dense delicious brownies. You can experiment. Sub the chips for nuts or unsweetened coconut. Try subbing the sugar for 3/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce. Test the batter to see if it looks like regular brownies and taste it too. Add more cocoa or applesauce if desired. If they don't rise good, hey, eat them with a spoon. I have a recipe for applesauce brownies that are good but they have sugar and dairy. Hope it works for you!

In case you haven't already tried it, I'd recommend Stevia for your sweetener. I like the pure powder, as there are no fillers or additives.

Coconut flour is great for baking, so I'd suggest that too. It should help when making things without dairy.

I have no idea how much sugar they have so this might not help, but the Gluten Free Pantry brownie mix is actually quite good. They have instructions for making them dairy free on the box.

Thank you for all your suggestions - I will look into the websites. The brownie mixes are good, but they shoot my blood sugar up too high and takes several days to recover.
