Can I introduce you to these rich and indulgent, intensely chocolatey fudge cake-like or fudgy brownies, you choose! These Coconut Flour Chocolate Brownies will make you gluten free and chocoholics very happy! I am totally obsessed with these brownies at this point and time!
Yes, I said you choose: fudgy or cake-like brownies!
Only use 2 eggs for fudgy brownies!
Use 3 eggs for cake-like brownies!
If you add an extra egg to your brownies, you'll get more of a cake-like brownie, rather than a dense, chewy brownie. The extra egg adds volume and creates a soft, light texture.
*sigh...* I could eat brownies every day for the rest of my life!
Back in the day, I did eat them pretty much every day for many, many years, (guilty as charged) so, trust me when I say, I am very familiar with all the many different variations and what they taste good with.
99% of the time when brownies fall apart, that usually is a sign that a certain person(s) couldn't wait for the brownies to cool completely. (Guilty again!)
We tried coconut flour instead of almond flour or gluten-free flour and these brownies turned amazing!
Coconut flour addresses grain allergies, which is an alternative to wheat flours and is free from preservatives, gluten, genetically engineered (Non-GMO), and is 100% organic.
Coconut flour is tricky to work with because it is not a grain-based flour. It's not an easy substitute, but these brownies are good to go for you using coconut flour in them!
One requirement for brownies though: Brownies must have intense chocolate flavor for the ultimate chocolate experience, don't ya think? These pass the test with flying colors!
These brownies consist of just a few ingredients: butter, sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, eggs, and coconut flour. They bake up beautifully and when you cut the brownies, they look all nice and neat. They don't fall apart like some brownies do, even when still warm.
Exit stage left...These thick and luscious Coconut Flour Chocolate Brownies are calling for me in the other room and I must go rescue them!
I'm super excited to be adding more gluten free and Keto desserts that will be delicious and easy to make for you, without sacrificing taste. Soon to be your bestest friends in the land soon. I promise.

"Purely Amazing" GF Ultra Chocolate Brownies
- ½ cup unsalted butter melted
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¾ cup sugar or coconut sugar
- 3 large eggs for cakier or 2 eggs for fudgier
- 2 teaspoons chocolate, coffee or vanilla extract
- ½ cup Coconut Flour or Purely Amazing Flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, candies, nuts, etc. optional
Purely Amazing GF Ultra Chocolatey Brownies
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking oil spray. Line with parchment paper (or baking paper); set aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the melted butter, cocoa powder and sugar for about a minute.
- Add the eggs and extract using a wooden spoon or spatula.
- Add in flour and salt and mix into the wet ingredients until combined. (DO NOT over-beat as it could affect the texture of your brownies).
- Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top out evenly.
- Top with chocolate chips, or other add-ins if you wish.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the center of the brownies in the pan no longer jiggles and is just set to the touch. NOTE: The brownies will keep baking in the hot pan out of the oven so you don't want to over-bake.
- If testing with a toothpick, the toothpick should come out dirty for fudge-textured brownies. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.
- Makes 9-16 brownies depending how you big you cut them.
- Suggestion: Bigger slices for cake-like brownies for ice cream scoops on top with hot fudge or just a decent sized brownie and smaller slices for fudgier brownies, because they're richer and gooier.
