Dairy free brownies

I used nut butter, which has natural oils that work in a similar way to butter, so you don’t need any dairy in this recipe. Note that one egg is used, and while people sometimes think of eggs as dairy because they’re typically near the milk and butter at the grocery store, eggs are dairy free and all about the protein.

Rather than using a chocolate syrup or chocolate chips, since many of them contain dairy (among other less than real ingredients), I used unsweetened raw cacao powder.

Gluten free and flourless brownies

I made these brownies especially indulgent by swapping out any flours for the nut butter, and I used raw cacao powder for the rich, fudgy flavor and chewy texture.

Ingredients for dairy free gluten free brownies

Here’s the full list of ingredients. If you’re working with a stocked paleo pantry, you’ve likely got everything you need on hand.

How to make dairy free, flourless brownies perfect every time

I love how easy this recipe is to make and how they come out great every time, and nobody ever realizes that they’re a healthier version of brownies. They’re a total crowd pleaser. Here are the simple steps to make them great every time.

  • Preheat oven and line a square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Whisk egg.
  • Add nut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, baking and sea salt and mix to combine.
  • Add cacao powder and combine. It gets a little tough, so you might try adding a small amount at a time.
  • Dump the mixture into lined dish and spread out with your hands into an even layer.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes. They will rise quite a bit in the oven, and they’ll be just a little squishy when they’re ready, slightly underdone looking. That’s what you want!
  • Allow them to fully cool (THIS IS IMPORTANT) or they won’t stay together for you.
  • Serve as is or top them with flaky sea salt and/or melted chocolate.

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit and line a 9×9" baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg.
  • Add nut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, baking soda and sea salt and mix to combine with a spoon.
  • Next, add cacao powder. It's easiest if you do it a little at a time as it gets harder and harder to combine.
  • Dump mixture into parchment lined pan and spread out with your hands. I sprinkled a little salt on top, but that's optional.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes. The brownies will rise quite a bit in the oven, and they'll be just a little squishy when they're ready, slightly underdone looking. That's what you want! Allow them to fully cool (THIS IS IMPORTANT) or they won't stay together for you.
  • You can drizzle with melted chocolate if you desire. Cut into squares and serve.

  • Truly the best brownies I have ever eaten, and better for health than most! I used peanut butter and added a tablespoon of ground flaxseed for my post-cancer good. I used my hands to do the final mixing because the dough IS firm, as they state, especially with the added flaxseed.
    I shared some of the brownies with a friend and some family members, and we’re all ready to make another batch. 🙂
