Here is my favourite brownie recipe for those who are can’t have dairy or gluten or soya. After lots of (extremely necessary testing) I can confirm it produces the gooiest ‘free from’ brownies I’ve tasted.

I haven’t tried it, but I imagine if you’re egg free simply using an egg replacer or flax seed mix would work well. Nut free may be a little harder as the ground almonds add a lot of moisture. I’d try gf flour and also add in some mashed banana for moisture.

Brownies

So without any further delay. What you’ve all been waiting for…

Gluten and Dairy Free Gooey Brownies
Recipe type: Treat
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-10
 
Ingredients
  • 100g 70%+ dark chocolate (sugar free if desired)
  • 50g coconut butter or oil
  • 80g ground almonds
  • 80g coconut sugar (or try your natural sweetener of choice)
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g roughly chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C and grease a loaf tin
  2. Melt the coconut butter and chocolate by placing it in a bowl suspended over simmering water
  3. Once melted allow the chocolate mixture to cool a little and then add the almonds, coconut sugar and egg yolks. Mix well until fully incorporated.
  4. Stir in the walnuts
  5. Whisk the egg whites in a scrupulously clean bowl/whisk until they form stiff peaks. Gently stir them into the mixture.
  6. Pour into the pan and bake for 25-35 minutes until just firm to the touch. I always think brownies are best slightly under cooked than over cooked.
  7. If you can wait long enough allow them to cool and cut into small squares. Otherwise don't look at me when you burn your tongue.
  8. Enjoy!
Notes
ALLERGIES// Contains nuts and egg. Gluten free. Dairy free. Soya free. If you're on a low FODMAP diet almonds are moderately high in FODMAPs so only eat a small slice or substitute for a different ground nut e.g. pecans
STORAGE// If they last that long they will keep in an airtight container for a few days and can be frozen. The recipe easily doubles.
ADDITIONS// Be creative with your additions. You could stir in a little of whatever 'superfood' powder is currently fashionable, a few flakes of coconut, some goji berries or dried unsweetened cranberries if you think fruit can be friends with chocolate.
