This was my first offical attempt at any kind of gluten free baking and I'm so happy with how these turned out! This recipe is very simple because it doesn't take a lot of different flours for a blend but you would never know these are gluten free!

One thing I noticed, and I'm not sure if it's just because I haven't eaten bread-like goods in the last month but, these seemed quite rich to me and I could only eat a small piece at a time. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies

What You Need:

  • 1 c. melted butter
  • 3/4 c. cocoa
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3/4 c. rice flour
Blend together the butter and cocoa. Add in the sugar and vanilla, then beat in the eggs. Then add in the flour. (Either brown or white rice flour will work, another flour altogether might work great too!)
Pour batter into a greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Have you any hot chocolate mix in the house? Just adjust the sugar.

do you think it would work to add a cup of shredded zucchini?

Yes I think so but you will want to take out a maybe one of the eggs.

I see there is rice flour in this recipe. I contacted the company that makes Minute Rice to see if you can grind it into flour. They said they did not advise it. Has anyone else tried this? It would make life more easier to grind down already dried rice than to boil and dry and grind. I also thought about using baby rice cereal. Any suggestions/thoughts?

You can grind rice in a flour mill, I’m not sure about Minute Rice though.

I tried a mix and it was bad. Can’t wait to try your recipe. Please share it on my foodie friday party today.

Cheryl – from what I’ve read about making your own rice flour, you don’t need to cook the rice. You just take regular rice from the store (not the quick-cook kind like minute rice) and grind it up and there you go! This recipe sounds good, I think I’ll try it tomorrow!

Although I just found an article where she rinses the rice, soaks it, dries it most of the way, grinds it, and then basically cooks the flour so that the rest of the water in the flour evaporates..I really hope that’s not what you have to do because I’d much rather buy it already made then!?

That’s only if you want to sprout the rice first. You can just grind rice without sprouting.

WOW. My friend who has Celiac disease has had a rough week so I wanted to make him something to cheer him up. I made these and they are SO good. I typically don’t enjoy gluten free treats but these are so good I don’t think anyone would know they are gluten free! Great recipe thanks so much 🙂

I’m so glad you liked them, I hope your friend did too!
