Best Gluten-Free Brownies

These perfectly delicious brownie bites should fill that empty chocolate spot! (Not only are they just the right size for a little treat – they’re also gluten-free, which is splendid!)

“Brownie Bites”

OVEN: 325° F | BAKE: 10 minutes | YIELD: 40-44 Mini-Muffins | NOTE: Gluten-Free

Dry Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum
1/4 cup potato starch
2 Tb. tapioca starch
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup evaporated cane juice or sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup chocolate chips

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 Tb. vanilla extract
1/2 cup hot coffee

In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop batter in lightly greased mini-muffin pans with small scoop. Bake for 10 minutes at 325° F. Let brownies stand in muffin pans for several minutes to set up. After setting, tumble the brownies out onto a cooling rack.

These freeze fabulously! (You could easily make a double or triple batch, freeze lots, and have ready-to-eat chocolaty brownie bites.)

Fact: You can stir the batter as much as you would like to! This is because there is not any gluten, which, when over-stirred, could stiffen the batter and make the brownies tough!

    Yum! They look great Emily! :D Thank you dear for sharing the recipe! :) Mmm, love the applesauce and the coffee! :D I bet they tasted really good! ;)

    Hmm, never thought about the fact that you could stir as much as you wanted with GF recipes. ;) Lol! I made brownies yesterday and tried not to stir “too” much without even thinking about that! :D HaHa!

    Have a most blessed weekend! :)

    that looks YUMMY! I am at the ocean right now, so I can’t try the recipe!! I want to try it when I get home :)

    I tried these today and I wonder if I missed something… mine aren’t brown! Was my coffee not hot enough to melt the chocolate chips? Was there supposed to be something else like cocoa powder? They taste great but look nothing like yours ;)

  13. Emily Rose on Sep 19, 2010 said:

    I’m so sorry – I forgot to add “1/2 cup cocoa powder” to the dry ingredient list! (It’s fixed now.) It sounds like you made blondies, though, and I’m so glad to hear that they tasted good . . . even without the special missing ingredient. Thank you for letting me know, and I hope next time around they turn out like the pictures!

    Many Blessings,
    Emily Rose

  14. Joellen Armstrong on Sep 20, 2010 said:

    Haha, no worries! Everyone at small group enjoyed them last night! Plus, now I have a good reason to try them again ;)

    How funny that the cocoa got left out. I need to try these! Thank you so much Emily Rose for commenting on my photo’s. I appreciated that very much. Your posts are always so beautiful. I need to show the one of the sticks to my mom. It’s a great idea! One year we made a little box about a month before christmas and each night we would write down what we were grateful for. On christmas morning we opened the box and read it aloud.
    Many Blessings,

    Y.U.M! That looks so scrumptious! My mouth is watering…

    hello emily, I just thought I would share that I have been keeping a food blog, and I thought since your family is getting interested in raw or whole foods that it might be fun to see what I eat (actually hannah keeps a food journal too, its just attached to her main blog). I will be posting recipes that I use that turn out well and I also have some great websites about health that I use often.

    how comes that I had never been across your beautiful blog ?! count me as a regular reader from now on, and thank you for the recipe which I’m going to try very soon

  19. Crystal on Jul 19, 2011 said:

    Got everything except for sorghum. I’ll be sure to get some on my next shopping trip so I can try this recipe. It sounds delicious!

    No gluten, eggs, or dairy – and no long list of expensive ingredients! (I found it helpful to use Dove Gluten-Free Flour Blend to make things really easy.) Judging by my family’s enthusiastic reviews, this may become a favorite. Thank you for sharing!
