Youre looking at these photos and I know what youre thinking. Wowww I should really save this as my phones background! No? Only me? Well, Ive been thinking about these brownies so much since perfecting them that they are indeed saved as my phones lock screen & home screen. Let me have a moment with them. After youve tried them, you may end up doing the same.

Ive wanted to make a really good no great no, ABSOLUTELY incrediblegluten-free brownie recipe for a while. Not an oh, swap this for this recipe. But a solid, this was created with gluten-free in mind brownie recipe. Ive been slowly introducing myself to almond flour for a few years now, swapping it out in my favourite recipes that required flour to see how it worked best.

My favourite almond flour ever is by Bobs Red Mill, which you guys know is my #1 choice and recommendation for gluten-free flours and so many other products.Needless to say, Ive fallen in love with it. I love the subtle nutty taste, the texture, and its density. Bobs Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flouris my favourite because it has a smooth and consistent texture and worked flawlessly for me across endless recipes. I especially love them in these brownies!

Simple ingredients, rich chocolatey flavour

One of my goals for these brownies was to create a cost-friendly & easy to make brownie recipe. I didnt want to be telling you to use a whole host of ingredients so I worked hard to ensure the list had straight-forward ingredients, was very simple and most of all tasted incredible. You need 10simple ingredients, two of which are water and salt so really only 8. I swapped out my usual melted chocolate chips for cocoa powder because do you know how many times Ive had cocoa powder and NOT chocolate chips?!

Cocoa powder created a richer chocolatey flavour (just my type) and balanced out perfectly with the almond flour which is moist, chewy in texture and easy to use, and so essentially perfect for brownies all around. The result is these little morsels of heaven sitting in front of you right now. Every single bite made me want to do a little brownie dance, and trust me, I had multiple bites. I wanted to get the sweet to chocolatey to fudgy ratio just right, but if you prefer a more cake-like brownie I also have instructions for that down below.

How to make vegan almond flour brownies

Making these brownies is so easy because its a one-bowl brownie! I love one bowl or one-pot dishes because well yeah, fewer dishes! It also means Im less likely to skip a test & the whole dish gets done more seamlessly.

Firstly, you add in your liquids. I tested olive oil, coconut oil and a neutral oil in these. I personally love olive oil because of its viscosity, but I also love the slight coconut-y taste that coconut oil adds. If you want neither, you can use a neutral oil or any oil you have (except like sesame oil).

Then in goes my vegan eggs. Here I used my Bobs Red Mill Egg Replacer because friend if youre baking a lot, trust me buy this. Its the perfect egg replacer and I always have bags of it on hand. Each bag lasts 34 eggs too and lasts long, so its definitely a great buy. You can use flax eggs but I havent tested them.

Then, in goes my sugar. Organic brown sugar is my favourite especially since coconut sugar makes them much darker and has a coconut-y flavour. But, you can definitely use it! Add in your vanilla and your water.

Then in goes the dry ingredients. This is easy, right?! Your cocoa powder, your Bobs Red Mill Almond Flour, your baking soda & your salt. You want to ensure that youre using the best quality ingredients that you can. Buy the best cocoa powder you can, ensure youre using a high-quality fine Almond Flour like Bobs Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flour,ensure your baking soda is actually fresh, and opt for sea salt. All these ingredients make a difference to your end product. Stir together until combined.

Since its gluten-free, you cant overwork the dough, so feel free to mix for a good 3-5 minutes to ensure its all mixed in. You want no lumps and for the almond flour to be fully mixed in. Then, your chocolate chips! Theyre totally optional. I did a batch with and without them and while the chocolate chips batch was my favourite, I also loved the ones without. Pour into your greased or parchment paper-lined baking pan and smooth over. Bake, cool, cut and enjoy! LOOK at those brownies. You know you need to make these.

In summary, these vegan almond flour brownies are:

  • Absolutely delicious
  • Gluten-free
  • High in fibre, protein and lower in carbs
  • These brownies have a rich chocolatey taste.
  • Have the best chewy & fudgy texture
  • Are made all in one bowl

After sharing these with lots of friends and family members, I can guarantee youre going to love these. Theyre perfect for upcoming Valentines Day and basically every single day after that. Trust me. Enjoy friends!
