Vegan Gluten Free Brownies

Vegan Gluten Free Brownies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 40 minutes


2 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (272g)

1 cup Cocoa Powder (84g) Unsweetened

2 cups White Granulated Sugar (400g)

1 and 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Instant Coffee Powder

1 cup Vegan Buttermilk (240ml) 1 Tbsp lemon juice + soy milk up to the 1 cup (240ml) line

1 cup Coconut Oil (240ml) Melted

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (88g)

1/2 cup Vegan Chocolate Chunks (88g) chopped up vegan chocolate


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Prepare a 9x9 inch square baking dish by spraying with non stick spray and lining with parchment paper so that there is overhang over the sides (see photos) so that the whole tray of brownies can easily be lifted out.

2Add the gluten free all purpose flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl. Add in the sugar, baking powder, salt and coffee powder and mix together.

3Prepare your vegan buttermilk by adding 1 Tbsp of lemon juice to a measuring jug and then adding soy milk up to the 1 cup (240ml) line. Let it curdle.

4Add the vegan buttermilk, melted coconut oil and vanilla extract to the mixing bowl and mix into a thick batter.

5Then add the vegan chocolate chips and chunks and mix in.

6Transfer the batter to your prepared baking dish and smooth down with the back of a spoon.

7Bake for 40 minutes. I found 40 minutes to be perfect, they have plenty of fudginess in the texture but they're not ultra gooey. See notes for how to know they are done.

8Let them cool for 15 minutes and then lift the whole tray of brownies out using the parchment paper overhang. Place it onto a wire cooling rack and let the brownies cool completely before cutting. If they're still warm when you cut them, they're harder to cut and more breakable.

9To cut the brownies, heat up a knife by dipping it in some very hot water (from the kettle) and then drying it off with a towel and cutting. After each cut, dip the knife in the hot water and dry it off again, and repeat. This allows you to cut perfect squares and also melts the chocolate along the edges as you cut the squares.

10Serve the brownies as is, or with vegan whipped cream.
