Brownies Recipe Request- That Use Cocoa Powder

Recommended Posts

I'm hunting brownie recipes! I need dairy-free ones that call for cocoa, not a hunk of chocolate. I know there's dairy-free hunk-of-chocolate options out there, but I'd prefer to use cocoa, which is cheaper- and I can make up mixes ahead of time.

If your recipe includes chocolate chips, do post it. I plan on picking up some Enjoy Life chocolate chips this weekend.

I've tried Carol Fenster's recipe, but we didn't care for how they turned out. (Which surprised me- everything else of hers that I've made has turned out good. Just a matter of taste, I guess.) They were kind of dry and dense.

The flours I always have in the house are:

-White Rice Flour

-Sorghum Flour

-Tapioca Flour

-Corn Starch

-Potato Starch (most of the time)

-Sweet (Glutinous) Rice Flour

Thanks for your help!!! :D

Acquired from somewhere else, already forgotten, maybe here as well.

Two bite Brownies

1/2c plus 2 tbsp gluten-free flour( they used Bob's Red Mill)

1/2 c. sugar

1/4c. cocoa powder

1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce

1 1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp. xanthan gum

1/4 c. canola oil

1 tbsp. vanilla ( yes 1 tbsp)!

1/2c. mini choc chips gluten-free

bake 325 for 15min or until set.

In bowl mix dry ingredients.In another bowl mix applesauce, oil, & vanilla.Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in mini chips. Spoon into mini greased muffin pans

Velvet Brownies

2/3 cup gluten-free flour mix

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites

1 egg

3/4 cup sugar

6 tablepoons baby food pear or pea puree or unsweetened applesauce (I tried the recipe with pear puree).

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Optional: 1 tablespoon chopped peacans, walnuts, or macadamia nutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8"x8" pan with vegetable oil spray (I just used wax paper and olive oil). In a measuring cup, combine the flour mix, cocoa, cinnamon, and salt. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites and egg slightly. Add the sugar, puree, oil, and vanilla and wisk until blended, but don't overbeat. Pour into the prepared pan and sprinkle on the nuts (if used). Bake until set and a tester comes out clean, about 25 minutes (I'd go a few minutues longer, like 27). Cool before cutting into 2" squares. Makes 16 brownies.

Hey Sarah :D

I have no luck with brownies--I go with Gluten Free Pantry. They are excellent with the Enjoy Life Chips ;)

Here's a recipe I use a lot--it's the world's easiest chocolate cake and it uses cocoa--

CHOCOLATE CAKE

Whip one large egg until frothy, Add 1/4 cup oil, one cup milk (I use almond milk) and a teaspoon of vanilla.

Combine one cup rice flour, 1/4 cup cocoa, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum.

Add to the wet ingredients, combine and mix for one minute.

Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes in an 8 inch square pan.

Loosely adapted from the Ener-g Rice Flour box :P

Thank you so much, everyone!!! :wub: Jess, what a stash! :lol: Thanks. I usually buy the Gluten-Free Pantry mix, too. They're awesome. I wasn't sure if they were casein-free; I don't have a box in the cupboard at the moment. So that's good to know!

If anyone has more, keep them coming! :D
