Low Calorie Gluten Free Brownies

Everyone laughs when I tell them I love to bake but I don’t usually eat the treats I bake. I’ve never really been one to eat much sweets, but every so often I do love something chocolate and decadent. But when I get that sweet chocolate craving I love a nice chewy brownie. And these Gluten Free Coconut Sugar Brownies hit the spot.

How to Make Gluten Free Coconut Sugar Brownies

  • Cocoa Powder – we used a dutch pressed, dairy free cocoa powder for a rich chocolate brownie.
  • Eggs – I used XL eggs. It has a little more liquid which works well especially in gluten free baking.
  • Coconut Sugar – Made from the coconut palm, it is dark in colour and low glycemic. It’s not as sweet as regular sugar, but it does add a great depth of flavor and just enough sweetness especially with the addition of the chocolate chips.

  • Chocolate Chips – when it comes to brownies, I love the addition of chocolate chips. The extra gooey bit you get when you bite into the brownie is a slice of chocolate heaven. You could leave them out but I’m partial to the chocolate chips.
  • Oil – when it comes to all my baking that uses oil, I generally use coconut oil, grapeseed oil or olive oil depending on the recipe. For these brownies I used coconut oil, but you could use a neutral oil such as canola.
  • GF Flour – This recipe uses a gluten free 1:1 baking blend. I used my own blend, but bobs red mill 1:1 works great too. Or you could use any 1:1 baking blend that you prefer.
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Vanilla
