The Ridiculously Good Gluten Free Brownie Recipe

It hasn't been that long since I posted a brownie recipe on my blog (The Healthy-ish Brownie Recipe) so you could be forgiven for thinking that I'm some sort of brownie fiend who needs my fix just like the cookie monster needs his. In actual fact it's not often any more that I get into the kitchen to bake up a batch of deliciousness but this is a recipe that needs to be shared.

Although I'm not gluten free it's always nice to have recipes on hand that have our food intolerant friends in mind and when I found this Nigella recipe (so you know it's going to be deliciously bad for you) for gluten free brownies I knew it was going to be a party-in-my-mouth situation and oh boy is it good.

You may wince at the ingredients listed as there's nothing remotely healthy about it but I'll be damned if it isn't the best dessert brownie I've ever baked. Check it out, whip it up and give it to all your gluten-free buds and prepared to become their most loved person ever.


225g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
225g butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
200g caster sugar
3 large eggs (beaten)
150g ground almonds
100g chopped walnuts

Chocolate Sauce:
75g dark chocolate
125ml double cream
2tsp espresso powder
2tbsp hot water
1 tbsp golden syrup

To make the brownies
1. Preheat the over to 170 degrees C. Melt the chocolate and butter gently over a low heat.
2. Remove the pan from the heat and mix in the vanilla and sugar letting the mixture cool a little.
3. Beat the eggs into the pan along with the ground almonds and chopped walnuts. Pour into a 24cm baking tin.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, enough for the top to have set but the mixture to still be gooey. Once cooled cut into squares.

To make the sauce
1. Break the chocolate into a heavy based saucepan.
2. Dissolve the espresso powder into the water and add to the saucepan along with the remaining ingredients. Melt everything together on a gentle heat.
3. Stir well once everything has melted together and pour into a jug.

Serve brownie square with hot sauce and ice cream. Nom.
