Gluten Free Dairy Free Brownies
These gluten free dairy free brownies are gooey, fudge like and chocolaty. They have crisp chewy edges and a soft gooey center. These Paleo brownies are made without gluten or dairy, but they are even better than boxed brownies.
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, mix coconut sugar and eggs for 2 minutes on high, until light and frothy. In a microwave safe bowl, melt coconut oil. Then, stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Mix until smooth and creamy. If needed, microwave the whole bowl for another 10 seconds to get chocolate fully melted. Then, add melted chocolate mixture to stand mixer. Mix until combined. Stir in cocoa powder, tapioca flour, and vanilla extract. Optional but highly recommended: fold in an additional ¼ cup chocolate chips to the batter. Pour batter into lined baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven and bang on countertop 2 to 3 times to release any air bubbles. Return pan to oven. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Finally, cool brownies completely before slicing and serving.
Use coconut sugar for Paleo. White granulated sugar works as well.
Tapioca flour can be replaced with cornstarch or arrowroot powder.
Brownie batter will be just slightly thicker than traditional boxed brownie mix.
To bang pan on countertop after initial baking time, wear oven mitts. Lightly drop pan onto countertop, about 2 inches in depth. This releases any air bubbles.
My brownies were done after 25 minutes total. Check doneness by inserting toothpick into middle of brownies. If it comes out clean, they are done.
These brownies are gooey! Allow them to cool before digging into!
