Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Brownies

I have a confession: I make these brownies for dessert, but I mostly end up eating them for breakfast.

I’m not guilty about it, though, because they are made with such wholesome ingredients! These brownies are so easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients already.Β They’re also gluten-free– that’s not a dietary restriction that I personally require, but it’s a good thing nowadays to have at least a couple of GF recipes at your disposal.

These brownies are a yummy, healthy treat, whether you’re eating them for dessert or dessert-for-breakfast. πŸ™‚

  3. While I’m talking about aprons:Β I have two super cute aprons that I love… and never wear. I forget about them until I’ve dumped half a cup of flour on myself. I just never really got into the habit of putting an apron on, which is incredibly stupid, as I’m the world’s messiest baker. Is this a common problem or is it another sign that I’m bad at being an adult?

    Yummy! I really need to find out where the hecks my coconut flour went! (I should’ve labeled my random bags of ingredients before I moved..) These brownies look like the perfect treat to bring in! *-*

    Thanks for another great recipe! My Mother-in-law is on a very restrictive diet, but all your ingredients are on her can eat list, so now I have something yummy I can make for her.

    HI Courtney,
    Yum! Wow these look so tempting and moist. Sounds like they would make a healthy and wonderful dessert or snack. Being gluten-free makes them extra special. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted! Have a healthy, happy & blessed Thanksgiving!

    “I have a confession: I make these brownies for dessert, but I mostly end up eating them for breakfast.”
    Can I tell you I love this confession? And will take it as a suggestion for myself haha πŸ˜‰
    And although you aren’t gluten-free, I super appreciate you making these so someone who does have an intolerance to gluten can enjoy them (especially since when I try to make my own recipes for gf baked goods, it tends to end in disaster!).
    I think I have all of the ingredient to make it too!
    Did you like the Anna Kendrick book? It’s on my to-read list (sooner rather than later).
