Delicious moist, chocolatey, and scrumptious gluten-free brownies packed full of chocolate chips. Heaven. You won’t even realise they are gluten free!

Gluten free brownies

I find that sometimes with bakes, them being gluten free can make them denser and off putting – but with this recipe and it being a brownie its not a problem as its gooey, fudgey and exactly what we love!!

These brownies are made using gluten free flour – a classic GF alternative, and these are exceptional. I often bake these for my gluten intolerant friend, and now I bake them near enough weekly just because I love them that much!


I love loads of chocolate chips in my brownies, but my mum for example, being the fuss pot she is, can sometimes hate a super chocolatey brownie… but she doesn’t moan with these!

You can use combinations of different chocolate chips, or swap them out for different nuts if you like – but I love what I have written in my recipe. To me, this recipe is utterly fool-proof and it always goes down well with my taste testers!

Other recipes

I already have a couple of gluten free recipes on my blog, such as my gluten free double chocolate cookies, gluten free carrot cake, gluten free vanilla cupcakes, and my gluten & dairy free chocolate cake – and these have always been a massive hit. They are chocolatey, gooey, and of course – gluten free!

However… brownies are my absolute weakness – this is demonstrated by all of my other brownie & blondie recipes already on my blog. There is SO many, but some of your favourites include Biscoff brownies, Kinder Bueno brownies, bakewell blondies, and my Jammie Dodger blondies!

Adaptable recipe

My favourites are my chocolate orange brownies, but theeeese brownies… these gluten free brownies are just as good. And, all you coeliacs out there can enjoy them too! Feel free to customise them with your favourite gluten free flavourings, or chocolate bars – whatever you fancy!

I love this recipe, and have made it countless times, its pretty much the same as my go to ‘normal’ brownie recipe – so I hope you all like them too!

  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 200 g dark chocolate 70%+ cocoa content
  • 275 g light brown sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100 g gluten free plain flour
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 100 g dark chocolate chips
  • 100 g milk chocolate chips
  • 100 g white chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan, and line a 9" square tin with baking parchment.
  • Melt the unsalted butter and chopped dark chocolate together in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally (or in the microwave in short bursts), until it is silky smooth. Leave to cool to room temp!
  • Using an electric whisk/stand mixer, whisk together the eggs & sugar for a few minutes until the mixture is very mousse like, and is double the original volume of the amount of eggs + sugar! 
  • When whisked, pour the cooled chocolate mix over eggs and fold together carefully. It might take some time, but be patient – you don’t want to knock out the air you made up on the previous step!
  • Once completely combined, sift the cocoa powder and gluten free flour on top of the chocolate mix and then fold together again – still be careful to not knock out the air!
  • Once combined well, fold through the chocolate chips and pour into the prepared tin – bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes! Once baked, leave to cool in the tin completely.


  • If you are gluten free I am sure you already know this, but double check that the baking powder is gluten free – most are but its always better to be safe!
  • These brownies will last for 3 days in an airtight container, or you can freeze them for up to 3 months!
  • I used this 9″ square masterclass tin
  • I use this dark chocolate
  • I use this white chocolate
  • I use this cocoa powder
  • I use this vanilla extract
  • I use this baking parchment
  • Original recipe
    • 175g unsalted butter, 175g dark chocolate, 150g light brown sugar, 3 eggs, 1tsp vanilla, 15g cocoa powder, 1tsp baking powder, 150g ground almonds, 200g white chocolate chips, 100g pecans
    • Melt the butter and dark chocolate together and leave to the side too cool. Whisk in the light brown sugar until combined. Whisk in the eggs until fully combined and then add the vanilla, cocoa, baking powder and ground almonds until fully combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips and pecans, then pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Leave too cool fully in the tin or in the fridge overnight.

    My friend is obsessed, only gf dessert she likes, when is best to freeze? Once the brownies are cooked? And can you then warm them up?

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 8, 2023 at 8:23 am

      Yea, I would freeze once baked and then yes you can warm them again! x

    Delicious! These were an absolute treat. Took me a good 10 mins with a hand held electric whisk to get enough air into the eggs & sugar but it was so worth it!

  3. Sophie on March 22, 2023 at 6:07 pm

    If I wanted to make half the recipe what size tin should I use please?

  4. Linda Brown on February 23, 2023 at 10:41 pm

    What has happened to your gluten free recipe with pecans?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 26, 2023 at 11:42 am

      It’s in the notes of the recipe!

    • Lorraine on October 31, 2023 at 11:47 am

      Can this mixture be doubled, and how long would it alter the cooking time please 😊

  5. Ruby on November 12, 2022 at 10:44 am

    Can you make this without nuts as my friend is allergic t o them

  6. Paula on May 14, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Could I use a granulated sweetener instead of sugar?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 17, 2022 at 2:02 pm

      Hiya! Unfortunately I have not tested baking with sweetener, so am unsure! Sorry! x

  7. maggie on November 15, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    can I use any other chocolate eg chocolate orange in stead of white choc chips and if so how much?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 16, 2021 at 10:37 am

      Hiya! You can use any chocolate you wish, but be aware that some may contain gluten! (e.g Terry’s Chocolate Orange) Hope this helps x

  8. Corrie on August 12, 2021 at 4:17 pm

    I love your triple chocolate brownies (and all your other ones I’ve tried) but wanting to make some gluten free brownies for a friend. Which recipe would you advise, this one or the triple chocolate one with GF flour? Do they taste very different?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 13, 2021 at 3:21 pm

      Hiya! This one is tried and tested so I would recommend following this recipe x

  9. Abbie on June 26, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Can’t wait to try these but was hoping to modify for someone who is dairy intolerant too- would I be able just to substitute the butter for a dairy free form and ensure chocolate is dairy free? (Dark chocolate). Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 28, 2021 at 7:49 pm

      Whilst I haven’t tried it with this recipe, it should work well!!

  10. Yasmin on May 6, 2021 at 5:13 pm

    Can you substitute the egg for anything? Got a gluten and vegan problem here! x

  11. Nicola on February 24, 2021 at 3:53 pm

    Hi, would I be able to add raspberries to this recipe as I love your raspberry brownies! Thanks

  12. Nicola on February 24, 2021 at 2:22 pm

    Hi, would it be possible to add berries to this recipe as I love your raspberry brownies? Thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 25, 2021 at 1:33 pm

      I haven’t tried it with this base recipe but I don’t see why not!

  13. Megan Davis on February 15, 2021 at 3:59 pm

    Can I use gluten free plain flour in this recipe instead of the ground almonds?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 16, 2021 at 8:22 pm

      I would use my normal triple chocolate brownie recipe with gluten free flour if you wanted to use GF flour! x

  14. Dino on December 1, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    Is it possible to make gluten free Blondies?

  15. Emma on November 3, 2020 at 8:33 am

    These are absolutely delicious! I actually prefer them to normal brownies as they are a lot lighter but still sooooo fudgy! Brilliant recipe as usual 🙂

  16. Lauren on September 27, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    If I am replacing the nuts with chocolate (my friend is a brownie purist and doesn’t like the nutty chunks), then how much extra chocolate chips should I use? Same quantity as the nuts? Also does it matter about the type of chocolate chips (dark, milk or white)?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 28, 2020 at 12:05 pm

      Yeah just add to the same weight as the nuts, and you can use anything (As long as they are gluten free!) x

  17. Angela Phillips on August 13, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Seriously good recipe. Made these for my friend but passed a few pieces onto family who wouldnt have even guessed they were Gluten free. Will certainly be making them again! Thankyou. Oh I would have gave this recipe 5 stars but because I’ve commented previously it doesnt give me the option anymore. But seriously I highly recommend this brownie recipe. X

  18. Angela Phillips on August 8, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Hi. How important is the bain Marie? Could the chocolate and butter be melted together in a pan?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 8, 2020 at 8:34 pm

      I find Bain Marie/microwave the easiest so you don’t accidentally burn the chocolate in a pan x

  19. Carrie baker on July 8, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Can you freeze these? X

  20. Jessica Davison on June 8, 2020 at 6:39 pm

    Would I be able to use Nutella in these

  21. Kirsten Barker on May 22, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Would I be able to use other chocolate in these instead of nuts?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 23, 2020 at 9:53 am

      Do you mean instead of the pecans? Yes you can – the ground almonds are part of the batter though!

  22. skd on December 9, 2015 at 11:19 am

    I love nuts in my cakes and brownies. this brownie looks super yumm…
