• Want a recipe for a gluten free brownie that is a cross between a brownie and a piece of fudge? You’ve come to the right place. This gluten free brownie recipe was a happy accident. My intention was to create regular ol’ cakey gluten free brownies. I can’t tell you where the recipe veered off into fudge land. But it did. And I’m glad it did. Now, if I would only stop sneaking up into the kitchen and shaving off little pieces, I could finish this post:). I realize it’s the day before Christmas. And most of you already have all of your  goodies baked or at least planned. But just in case you want to sneak in one more yummy dessert, my guess is that you have everything you need to make this recipe, except for maybe the Andes mints. Quick, run to the store. Lickety split, these come together in a ho-ho-ho Merry Christmas kind of flash. And you’ll make Santa very happy when he/she comes down the chimney hauling that satchel. The Andes mints are definitely optional, but they really push the brownies over the top. I wouldn’t leave them out unless you’re dairy free. And if you are dairy free but want that taste of minty freshness, throw some peppermint extract into the batter. If you want icing on your dairy free brownies, you’ll have to top them with a different type of gluten free icing that doesn’t include the Andes mints. Please forgive me – I would come up with an dairy free icing alternative for you, but I have presents to wrap and suitcases to pack!

      These look to-die-for. And my favorite kind of brownie is the fudgy kind anyway–so I'm glad these didn't turn out cakey! Hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday together! :)

      Thanks for the great recipe, but can I substitute something for the earth balance? It has soy oil in it if I remember correctly. Soy is actually worse for me than gluten.

    • Sara

      Earth Balance makes a spread (butter substitute) that is gluten, dairy and soy free. I find it at WalMart or Whole Foods.

      Ellen — These look so perfect and yummy! Wow! I would love one right now, actually.

      That rich, chocolate glaze on top makes these look especially good! Plus, the combo of mint and chocolate just can't be beat.

      my daughter saw your brownie picture and said, "OH MAMA!! LOOOOOOK". I think we have a winner.

    • Emily

      This looks AMAZING. I love that the ingredients are so simple. Half the battle with GF food is that all the recipes contain a million different flours. Thanks for posting.

      I love your site–I too have a GF/Food Decorating blog. Feel free to check it out: http://mainlyglutenfreeinnyc.blogspot.com

    • Nela

      Have you tried the Chia seed flour? It's like the flour of wheat but not gluten and taste completely normal. You can substitute the regular flour in recipes like cake, muffing, or cookies. I have used it and my kids love chocolate chip cookies and brownies too. It is an excellent product and offers Nuchia Foods. http://www.nuchiafoods.com
