There is nothing like a super moist brownie on your tastebuds! If you have a problem with gluten, this recipe is ideal for you and the family. You can try this with a little crème fraiche or cream as a dessert – everyone will approve!

Serves: 12 brownies

Preparation Time: 10 – 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 – 30 minutes

Rest Time:  30 minutes

Dietary: Vegan



300g gluten free flour or all-purpose flour
50g dark cocoa
1tbsp baking powder
80g brown or caster sugar
½tsp sea salt
80ml cup coconut oil
400ml unsweetened almond milk/coconut milk
Optional: sprinkling of icing sugar



  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.
  2. Grease or line a 20x20cm/8x8inch baking dish
  3. In a large bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, sugar and sea salt and then mix through.
  4. In a smaller, separate microwavable dish, blitz the coconut oil in the microwave until it becomes liquid.
  5. Next, add the liquid coconut oil and milk into the large mixing bowl and stir with the other ingredients until combined well into a thick brownie batter.
  6. Pour the brownie batter into your baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes or until cooked through. You can use a skewer to gauge when the brownies are done; simply insert it into the cooked batter mix and if it comes out clean, the brownies are cooked.
  7. Once the brownies are cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool for 30 minutes before lightly sprinkling over the powdered icing sugar (using a sieve makes this easier) to finish. Portion the tray into 12.
  8. Can be served immediately or stored for several days in the fridge.
