Brownies Recipe Request- That Use Cocoa Powder

8 posts in this topic

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

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--


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

    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?  
    • So I have started my daughter on a magnesium citrate supplement.  I also took a does the first night so I have an idea of its effects.  (background info: about a month ago she started asking for tums about once a week close to bedtime for acid reflux)   So the first night I noticed that it really bothered my stomach in the sense that it felt like I had a lot of stomach acid as a result.  I had no heartburn etc. but a definite feeling of "burning" in my stomach.  We both took it right before bed.  The next day she reported the same feeling - that it "upset" her stomach.   I cut the dose in half and also gave it to her earlier in the evening.  But tonight she reported "heartburn" after drinking it.   Is this an indicator of low stomach acid?  I realize that she should NOT be taking a Tums if that is the case but I can't tease out from what I am reading if this heartburn is an indicator of LOW stomach acid or LOTS of stomach acid.  Any thoughts?
    • Thanks Ennis_TX! That's what I was hoping to hear I've never been a big protein powder user even pre-diagnosis despite being a fairly high level endurance athlete, so my awareness of what's out there is low. I've always preferred "real food," however, I was trying to find a protein powder because I have some extended job-related travel coming up, and wanted a shelf-stable, safe protein source. I like that this one only has no flavouring agents/nutritional additives and sunflower seeds are an inherently nutritious real food.  The price for this powder is actually pretty good in my area as the company is based in Vancouver/Bellingham, which is where I live. I don't much care if the taste or texture is horrible as long as it doesn't make me sick!  Just wanted to make sure that this was the case. Thanks for the hemp protein suggestion as well.
    • You're right, RMJ!  Food additives are definitely my reason for eating whole foods! Lol I'm allergic to Sulfites used as preservatives or antimicrobial agents in foods.  Long ago, Sulfites used to be added to meats to keep them pink and fresh looking, but that practice was banned.  However, those little moisture absorbing pads under some cuts of meat are allowed to contain Sulfites.  I found that I reacted to meats packaged that way.   Ennis, I wonder if that could be a possible reason for your reaction to meat.  Have you had Lyme disease?  Some people who've been bitten by infected ticks develop an allergic reaction to meat.   Curious Kitty
