Brownies- Gluten-Free, Top 8 Allergen Free

We have had so many requests for a brownie recipe over the years. I mean what's not to love? Gooey, chocolatey, fudgy goodness. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it! We got to work a few years ago making the perfect brownie recipe for you. There were many good recipes along the way, but we weren't satisfied until they were perfect. We were determined to get the glossy crisp top with the perfect fudgy middle. In all honesty, that's a tough combination when it comes to being not only gluten free, but also no wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, or refined sugar (among other allergens). That's a major science experiment right there. It requires just the perfect amount of everything to ensure taste, texture, and flavor are all three on par. If you know us, you know we will go to great lengths to perfect recipes and we don't give up easily (if ever). There is no reason to live without your old favorites or not have food that you have watched others eat your whole life while you sat and watched.

Our goal has always been that our celiac and food allergic kids would never miss any food or ever feel like they are missing out. That means you all get the beautiful benefit too as we pass all of the recipes on to you! We don't want anyone to miss out on all the amazing foods! A few weeks ago, someone asked our celiac kid if she could eat any food with gluten what would it be. This wasn't to encourage her to eat gluten, but rather see what she felt like she was missing out on. Interestingly, she said NOTHING! I was actually shocked and asked if she was sure there wasn't anything she would like to have (safely) that she hasn't had yet. She insisted that she has been able to eat everything her heart and mouth could imagine, all gluten-free and allergen free. If that isn't encouraging, I don't know what is. When I set out to create recipes 12+ years ago I didn't think we would ever come to this point. It nearly brought me to tears. We have experimented and created recipes for so long that she (and the rest of the family) don't feel like they are missing anything. That means every recipe from here on out are just icing on the cake, so to speak. Not to worry, we'll keep posting recipes here for you all, we aren't done yet. I still have high hopes for at least three more bucket list recipes. Other than that, we have recipes stocked up for you!

Now back to these perfectly gooey, fudgy, shiny crisp topped, not too sweet brownies. They are what dreams are made of! You can eat them all on their own or top them with your favorite vanilla ice cream. If you're a lover of "stuff" you can drizzle with caramel sauce and nuts if you can. We have served these to friends and also at big parties, they are always loved by those with and without food restrictions. That's our motto and we're sticking to it! Head on over and grab our Rustic Scoop™ Cookie Mix so you can make these incredible brownies!




1 Rustic Scoop™ Cookie Mix

½ Cup Milk of choice

1/2 Cup Melted butter 

1 1/3 Cups Chocolate chips (8oz)

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

¼ Cup Cocoa powder

2 Flax eggs (2 Tablespoon flax meal + 6 Tablespoons hot water) *Optional for a more cakey and tender brownie*


Prepare two 8x8" metal pans with parchment paper and set aside.

If you like a more cake like brownie, prepare your flax eggs. In a small bowl, combine the flax meal and hot water. Then set it aside. Skip this step if you like a fudgy brownie.

In a large bowl, add cocoa powder to the Rustic Scoop™ Cookie Mix.  Whisk until well combined.

In a double boiler with water on the bottom, mix chocolate chips and butter.  Bring the water to a boil and stir the chocolate chips and butter intermittently. Once the chocolate chips and butter are melted pull them off the stove. You can also do this in the microwave. In a medium microwave safe bowl place the chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir. The chocolate should be mostly melted. If not, microwave in 10-15 second increments until almost melted. Stir until all of the chocolate chips are melted and smooth. When they are cooled, slowly add the milk and vanilla while whisking. Combine the melted chocolate mixture with the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. 

Split the batter in half into two 8x8" baking pans lined with parchment paper. Bake on 325° F for 30-35 minutes. The edges will feel a bit crisp but the middle should be soft if you want a fudgy brownie. Bake a few minutes longer if you desire a less fudgy brownie. Enjoy!
