Flourless {dark chocolate} Brownies


dark chocolate flourless brownies


I have a certain weakness for brownies.

I always have.

As a kid, they were my favorite treat

hands down.

flourless dark chocolate brownies


I’m pretty sure my kids feel the exact same way.

I don’t make them very often,

but when I do,

they disappear in a flash.


These babies are


which is exactly what I was looking for,

and with no butter

no flour

and dark chocolate,

I can almost trick myself  into thinking that these are a good for you treat,

{I said almost}

    Pinning! Omg. Wow. HEATHER! They look amazing!
    No butter, no flour. I was like please, no, not chickpeas in them. Whew :)

    So is this your fave brownie recipe of all time? Love that you used coconut oil, too. I assume it’s discernible, but barely…?

    Oh my word! These look so amazingly good! A chewy, fudgy brownie is my ideal brownie, so I will definitely be making these! Thanks for sharing!! =)

    I made these brownies this weekend for my church small group and they turned out delicious! One of the ladies in our group is gluten-free, and I felt bad always making something everyone else liked but she couldn’t eat but I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find a dessert that would please the rest of our quite picky group. Thankfully, everyone enjoyed them and I’ve even passed the recipe on to my gluten-free gal for her to use in the future!

    These are fabulous! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips with Penzeys Natural High Fat Cocoa Powder (very dark) and Mexican Vanilla, and added some pecans. Had to bake a little longer. If you can’t wait for them to cool completely, use a plastic knife. Wow!

    Just wanted to let you know I am sharing your wonderful recipe tomorrow in my Gluten-Free Recipe RoundUp with a link back to your original post!
    Have a terrific weekend!

    i just made these tonight & they were utterly amazing! I replaced the almond meal with coconut flour though because I didn’t have almond meal on hand. Then I made a raspberry sauce & served them with that & Honey goat cheese! Yum! The batter alone was incredible!

    I want to make the flourless brownies, but I would like to add some baileys to it :) How would I adjust the recipe? Thanks for your help.

  9. says

    Hi Paula…I love baileys in brownies, but never tried it with he flourless. Depending on how much you want to add, you could simply add just a bit less coconut oil, or add a bit more almond meal to make up for the extra liquid. Please let me know how they turn out.
