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

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--


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

    • 1. Check post date this is 10 years old.  2. Addressing a few things from this, I react badly to animal fats, they float and cause to throw up, I also have digestion issues with tough meats, where they do not break down in my stomach and either get puked up or pooped out still looking like meat. Fish, crab, and lean meat like longhorn when cooked til it dissolves on your tongue into a paste are edible to me.   3.   I live off of fats. nuts, seeds, avocado, coconut oil, I am ketogenic and I do not eat carbs but only fat and protein.
    • i do take iron and b12 tablets as well but i think it depends on the person and what your levels are at but definitely keep at eye on it thats so exciting! where are you moving to? i'm from sydney, i havn't ate out yet but i know there are alot of options. the grocery stores carry lots of gluten free options so i wouldn't worry too much especially if you are going to a major city it will be easy. also all our processed foods have to be at 0ppm to be considered gluten free as opposed to 20ppm in the US so it makes me feel safer haha
    • i usually buy pre made falafels as the majority i've found are gluten free and vegan. they are really good on a wrap with hummus, lettuce, tomato/salads or even the same on a sandwich. i also eat them with a salad or as a side with a curry. the only recipe i've made from scratch is from http://www.hotforfoodblog.com/recipes/2015/05/04/baked-falafel-sliders-with-maple-tahini-sauce also their cheese sauce is really great, i make it with sweet potato and almond milk, its so easy and you can swap or leave out a few ingredients and it tastes just a good. i eat cheese but i still make that to have with tacos or nachos as well.
    • Hello thanks for answering , yes they did a biopsy , received the results and can't understand a thing in medical terms . Is the waiting that is irritating me . 😒  There was written among other things that the villus architecture is well preserved is this only sentence that confuses me . I will ask of course my doctor just wondered if any of you knows what it means . As for celiac blood work panel I will ask . I Know that they did some blood tests which I had to wait two weeks as here some blood tests they have to make them outside our island .
    • Hi  I live in the US. we use Corn flour and amaranth flour to make roti. There is any other flour to make roti. bcoz amaranth is a little expensive for us. and being punjabi we eat roti a lot and parantha too. so if anyone knows in US. from where we can get flour to make roti on cheap price. or any other website from where we could get all flour on good price.
